Bolton Valley Resort to Build the Second Ski Area Wind Turbine

Posted By: Zeke Piestrup on September 11, 2009 5:03 pm

Following in the footsteps of Jiminy Peak, northern Vermont’s Bolton Valley Resort will build the second wind turbine of a ski area.  The turbine will be the first for a Vermont ski area.  From the ground to the top blade, the 156-foot tall turbine will generate in excess of 300,000 kilowatts of power annually.

“This is a great day for Bolton Valley and our loyal family of skiers and riders,” said Larry Williams, who owns the resort with Doug Nedde. They are Burlington business partners in Redstone Group. “Since acquiring the ski area three years ago we’ve been committed to a program of environmental stewardship in our operations. Adding wind power is a significant investment but will yield tremendous returns for our ski area and Vermont. We want to thank our skiers and riders for their continued support, which has played a major role in our decision to continue moving forward at Bolton Valley.”
