BOLTON VALLEY, Vt. – To help give college kids a break, Bolton Valley Resort, big mountain skiing and riding packed with value just 30 minutes from Burlington, is offering $19 lift tickets during the traditional college winter break, on Mondays through Fridays through Jan. 14. With snow showers and accumulating snow in the long-range forecast, college students simply must present their college I.D. at Guest Services to receive the specially priced lift ticket.

“Bolton also is home to Vermont’s most extensive night skiing and riding so college students can actually ski or ride from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for just $19,” said Bolton Director of Marketing Josh Arneson. “That adds up to less than $2 an hour on the snow. Pretty cool.”

Bolton also is offering a student lodging package for $89 per night, valid Jan. 2-6 and Jan. 9-13. Students simply need to mention the college special when they call and then show their I.D. at check in. $2 pizza slices will be available in the base lodge each week as well.
