Changes to 2016-17 Snowmaking Plan and Lift Schedule

The fall foliage is only just starting to emerge but here at Bolton Valley we are already focused on winter. We are happy to announce plans to increase early season snowmaking and will also offer more night skiing in 2016-17.

This season we will be bringing in an additional air compressor for one month starting in late November. The additional equipment will allow our snowmaking crew to increase the amount of snow guns they have online at one time. Mother Nature will still have to cooperate by providing cold temperatures, but the increased firepower will allow the operations team to make more snow when conditions permit. Ultimately this will allow for more trails to be opened more quickly at the beginning of the season.

“The addition of the new air compressor will allow us to make snow at both the peak and the base of the mountain at the same time.” said Harold Herbert, mountain manager. “This will allow us to offer more trails to guests for early season skiing and riding.”

The extra compressor will only be on site for one month, but it will pay benefits throughout the season. “The ability to cover more trails early in the season moves up the timeline for every other trail on the mountain.” Herbert continued.

Skiers and riders will have more time to enjoy all the snow with expanded night skiing hours. Night skiing will be offered five nights per week this season, up from four nights per week last season. Night skiing will also run until 10pm each night it is offered, last season night skiing closed at 8pm most nights.  As in the past, lift tickets will be valid from the time of purchase until lifts close that day. This means that Tuesday through Friday a full day lift ticket will get you 12 hours of skiing and on Saturdays guests will be able to ski for 13 hours, from 9am until 10pm.


In addition to the on mountain changes, those staying at the mountain will also enjoy renovated ski-in, ski-out lodging. Over the past year most suites and 25 hotel rooms have received major upgrades. Improvements include new carpet, drapes, furniture, mattresses, fresh paint, and renovated bathrooms, new mattresses and new artwork.
