Oh So Much Snow!



If you're like me, your mind is already in that weekend territory. And while weekends do come around like clockwork, weekends like this certainly do not. Heed my advice reader; you won't regret a trip up to Bolton Valley this weekend. 
Weather:
We've had some excellent weather karma this week. Maybe it was because we burned all that sage and incense and covered the mountain with good voodoo. Or perhaps it was my funky snow dance. But let's get down to brass tacks: We got us some snow this week, most notably the addition of 18 inches in the last 7 days, with 15-16 of those inches falling in just the past 72 hours. Could we be any more set up for a perfect weekend? Ya we could, here you go: Temps today through Sunday look to stay right around that 30 degree sweet spot. Both Saturday and Sunday we expect to see some snowfall, with more potential accumulation on Sunday.
Trails and Conditions:
We have been nearly 100% open all week long, but with all the new snow and fine craftsmanship of our groomers, you'd think we'd only been running Mighty Mite for the last few days! Things look pretty beautiful out there on both the groomed and ungroomed surfaces alike. The woods are a real gem. The snow is keeping the trails very fresh and there's enough of it for you to still find untouched powder this weekend. We currently have 67 trails for the taking and we could add another trail or two to that count. All 6 lifts will spin this weekend, bringing you to the pow and some expertly groomed, luscious packed powder. We will also have night skiing tonight and Saturday so you don't have to say goodnight to Bolton once the sun goes down. 
Tavern:
Saturday in the tavern Blue Fox will join us once again from 8-11pm. Sip Woodchuck Cider on special and enjoy what Art Edelstein of the Times Argus newspaper calls, “One of the few authentic blues musicians in Vermont – well worth the listen.” 
Sunday, it's another night of trivia with Mike Germano from 6-8pm. Did you wash that thinking cap like I told you last week? You'll need it! 
Other Happenings:
Family Week is here! Maybe you're trying to figure out how to spend some real, authentic quality time with your kids over their school break. On the other hand, maybe you're trying to get them out of the house long enough to prevent them from starting a small kitchen fire. Or, keep them from punching a third major hole in the drywall. Whatever your motives, we're here to help. Check out next week's lineup. From puppet shows to dog shed rides, there's something for everyone.  
Also during Family Week, don't miss Vermont Peanut Butter Day. Bring a jar of Vermont Peanut Butter brand PB with you to Bolton Valley on Tuesday February 26th and pay 50% off the regular retail price of an All Access Lift Ticket.* That's it! As if you needed any more incentive, all the peanut butter collected that day will go directly to the Vermont Food Bank. Peanut Butter to the rescue! 
*Note that this offer may not be combined with any other offer or promotion.
