Welcome February!


Today we will reopen at noon after some less than favorable conditions forced us to close for a day. But it’s already improving around here; it is snowing lightly and there is a fresh dusting on the ground.
Weather:
The good news is, after heavy rains and some messy conditions, we're out of our second January thaw. The temps are now more on the winter side of things and look to stay that way for upwards of a week or more...so the weather news is much better than it has been. Plus, snow is in the forecast for the next 3-4 days!
Trails and Conditions: 
With the cold brings more snowmaking and the opportunity for us to patch up spots that were impacted by the weather. We're currently making snow from the top of Mid-Mountain on down and next in line are Sherman's Pass and Hard Luck Lane. While we're only able to project 14 trails for the weekend, we hope to emphasize quality over quantity and ensure that the skiing surfaces that we do have open are the very best they can be. And, once we add a little natural snow to the mix, we'll be upping our trail count in no time!
We're doing our utmost to give you some great skiing and riding for the weekend, so put away the umbrella and throw those layers back on, because winter is starting up once again. 
Events and Entertainment:
Plenty to enjoy in addition to skiing and riding on the mountain this weekend!
Saturday:
  • We ride again from 4-8pm with Bolton After Dark. It's $19 night skiing, $2 flatbread slices, soda and PBR drafts. And once you've clocked out from skiing for the day, you can count on Meathead Films to keep you entertained. This week we'll be showing Schooled. 
  • Live Music in the JMT: Donna Thunders and the Storm perform live in the James Moore Tavern from 8-11pm. Sam Adams will be on special. Donna Thunders and the Storm describe themselves as "outlaw country" and include band members Donna "Thunders" Moran on lead vocals, guitar and fiddle, Chris Martin on bass and vocals, Quenn on fiddle, banjo, guitar and vocals, Frank Pavlik on mandolin, guitar and vocals, and Cooper on drums.
Sunday:
  • Are you ready for some football?  We suggest celebrating Super Bowl 47 with your two favorite things: Skiing and riding at Bolton Valley and the big game on the big screen. Catch a life size Colin Kaepernick, or cheer for the Ravens on every screen in the house. The JMT will be Super Bowl HQ, so you won't miss a single play (or commercial). We'll keep you well fed too, with a menu of $6 appetizers and Woodchuck on special all evening long. So head on up for Super Ski Sunday and enjoy America's favorite February holiday! 
Shout out to BV Patrollers:
As of last Sunday, our Bolton Valley Ski Patrol eclipsed 3,000 hours of volunteer service for the season. The BV Ski Patrol is a team of 65 strong, of which 55 are unpaid volunteers. These skilled, dedicated professionals are a valuable part of the mountain and essential to all who ski it. We want to truly thank them for their efforts and ask that on your next trip up to BV, you give them a shout out as well!
