On Saturdays, lifts will turn from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. and on Sundays from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.


In addition to extended spring hours, Bolton Valley has special lift ticket pricing for those who want to enjoy those sunsets. From 3 – 5 p.m. Sunday through Tuesday, tickets are $19.

As always Saturday’s are Bolton After Dark with $19 night skiing and riding from 4 – 8 p.m. In addition, beginning tomorrow, all items in the ski shop are 40% off the retail price.

“One of the best benefits of spring skiing and riding at Bolton Valley is the longer days and we take advantage of that,” said Josh Arneson, director of marketing at the resort. “We have sensational sunsets from our west facing slopes, a unique experience for anyone who has been skiing or riding all season long. It doesn’t get dark at 4 p.m. like it did in December and January. Most other resorts end their day in the shadows, while we ski and ride into the sunset with direct sunlight. The sky glows red and orange as the sun sets behind the Adirondacks, a view we enjoy from the top of Bolton.”

Bolton Valley also is offering free skiing and riding for the remainder of to the season to those people who purchase a 2011-2012 All-Access season pass by the April 5 early bird deadline. Pass prices start at $449 for adults and $159 (when purchased with a parent’s adult season pass) for youth ages 7-17, if purchased by April 5. The resort will close for the 2010-2011 season on Sunday, April 3.
