This week I had the desire to explore another new ski area. My sister Tina suggested I try Bolton Valley in Bolton, VT. It was a perfect spring skiing day with temperatures in the 40’s and the snow getting nice and soft as the day progressed. Since it was a Monday there were no crowds and the mid-week rate was only $49.
I had several fantastic runs down the Cobrass trail, which offers a great view of Bone Mt. and Camel’s Hump.
By mid-morning I made it over to the Timberline Lift and the Showtime trail. The snow was deep and well groomed on this trail and I have many great runs.
Being my first time at Bolton Valley I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy a nice view of Lake Champlain and the mountains of New York State in the distance.
I really like Bolton Valley and plan to return. It’s close to I-89 and therefore easy to get to. There is affordable slope side lodging and night skiing which would make it a great option for a ski vacation.
