Posted By: The Ski Channel on February 3, 2011 8:05 am

This season, skiers and riders at Bolton Valley Resort, big mountain skiing and riding packed with value just 30 minutes from Burlington, continue to reap the rewards of the onslaught of snowstorms, including this week’s blast that drenched trails with nearly two feet of snow since Tuesday. With snow again in the forecast for this weekend coupled with the seven and a half feet of snow the resort has received since Jan. 1, the family-friendly resort is well on its way to surpassing its annual average natural snowfall total of 300+ inches.

For skiers and riders, these storms simply mean endless powder days are in sight.

Today 61 trails are open, accessed by 5 lifts. Conditions are powder and packed powder. More trails are expected to open as ski patrol continues to drop ropes. For the complete snow report, skiers and riders should visit www.boltonvalley.com.

While some relish in this snow, others, especially those in urban and suburban areas, are not as thrilled about shoveling out—again. To ease the pain, Bolton Valley has created the Cabin Fever Elixir package, which includes 2 days of skiing, 1 night of slopeside lodging at the Inn at Bolton Valley, dinner, and breakfast, for just $149 per person. For details and reservations, guests should call 877.9.BOLTON.

Bolton Valley Resort is Vermont’s most convenient big mountain for skiing and riding packed with value. Less than 10 minutes from I-89 and less than 30 minutes from Burlington, the family-friendly mountain offers skiers and riders of all abilities three mountain peaks with 71 trails and 6 lifts, plus 3 terrain parks including the Burton Progression Park.
