Opening Weekend Presses On

Yesterday was one of the best opening days we've ever had here at Bolton Valley. We received six inches of fresh snow just in time to open the lifts for some first-day freshies. If you've been watching the weather like we have, it might be even more epic tomorrow. But we'll let you know when we find out for sure.

Today, we're running the Vista Quad (8:30), Mid-Mountain (10:00) and Mighty Mite (9:00) lifts, with seven trails open for top-to-bottom skiing and riding. Alta Vista, Sherman's Pass, Hard Luck Lane, Spillway Lane, Bear Run, Primer Loop and Mighty Mite are all open, giving you plenty of variety in your journey down the slopes. We're also making snow on Jungle Jib and Beech Seal. We hope to get those open by early next week, as weather conditions allow.

We're also running a retail special from now until December 25 called, "The 12 Days of Christmas". Original, I know, but bear with me here. It's a cool special. Each day the retail shop will have one specific item for sale, and it will continually rotate each day until Christmas Day. For instance, today, Gordini face masks will be 20% off for guests and 30% for season pass holders. And, what a coincidence, it's pretty chilly out there today. It might be a good thing to pick up in the morning, and Gordini makes some of the warmest clothing I've ever owned.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's special deal. And don't forget you can still purchase $25 lift tickets in advance when you order online. These will be valid until Dec. 25 and can only be purchased until Sunday!

Also, check out our new Bolton Valley Access video series that will be running all winter long for an inside look at conditions and general goings-on around the mountain.

Until next time, stay warm, be safe and have a blast, Bolton! Welcome back to Winter.
