After receiving more than a foot of snow, Bolton Valley Ski Area will open for the 2014-2015 winter season this Friday, Dec. 12. This will mark the longest Opening Day in Vermont with lifts turning from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. The day will include special lift ticket prices and an opening day party.

“We look for a window of cold weather about two weeks out from opening day—which is about the amount of time we need to get trails open for the season,” said Josh Arneson, director of sales and marketing. “The natural snow is fantastic, too. Combined, it’s allowed us to turn the calendars back a day and open early and have some fun with the longest Opening Day in the state. This gives our snow-loving customers plenty of time to hit the mountain either after school or work, and we’ll celebrate with some festivities Friday evening.”

Officials at the resort expect to have three lifts serving at least eight trails plus a terrain park available on opening day. Lift tickets for Friday are $39 for all ages and $19 beginning at 4 p.m. To cap it all off, the ski area will host a Welcome Back Party inside James Moore Tavern from 8-11 p.m.
