An upslope snowstorm whirled through Bolton Valley this past weekend, beginning on Friday and not letting up until late Saturday night but not before dropping two feet of new snow on the ski area’s 70 trails. The first big snowstorm of the season provided fresh tracks and powdery tree skiing on Sunday and has laid the groundwork for mid-winter conditions for skiers and riders right into March.
“This storm was long overdue for sure,” said Josh Arneson, director of sales and marketing at Bolton. “We had a very strong Presidents’ Holiday Week. Having this storm on the back end was icing on the cake and a great way to lead into Vermont’s vacation week. We’re offering powder and packed powder conditions. For those who thought winter was over, think again. Even if it has left the valleys, it’s alive and well in the mountains.”
