Bolton Valley is Like Recess, Only It Lasts All Day and Into the Night

Families come in all shapes and sizes, especially those that travel on family ski vacations together. And while dad may want to catch first chair, mom may be looking for a swim in the pool. The kids? Well, some may want to ride in the parks, while younger ones may need some lessons or childcare. Keeping the ever-changing dynamics of family needs in mind, Bolton Valley makes it easy for families to enjoy skiing and riding together with night skiing, a complete sports center, Nordic skiing and snowshoeing, plus ski movies and more.
Once on the mountain, every member of the family will find terrain to suit their needs whether its finding air on the jumps and rails in one of Bolton’s three terrain parks, including the Burton Progression Park, or in the 300 acres of trails and glades, divided up almost equally for novice, intermediate and advanced skiers and riders. One of the best treats, however, is a tasty waffle from the Waffle Cabin, with choices of sugar or chocolate to top off the sweetness.
88km of Nordic and Backcountry terrain take meandering cross-country skiers and snowshoers or more advanced alpine and telemark skiers and snowboarders into some of the most pristine gladed terrain at Bolton. The Nordic Center’s trails reap the benefit of its high elevation location and an abundance of natural snowfall annually.
The Bolton Valley Sports Center in the base village houses an indoor pool, plus an Indoor Amusement Center with video games and bounce houses for family fun off the slopes. Parents can simply walk over to a full rental and retail shop for equipment needs and the ski and snowboard school or the Burton Learn to Ride Center plus an on-premise childcare facility make it easy for parents to know exactly where their children are at all times. Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports’ northern home is located at Bolton as well, offering skiing, riding, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing to people with disabilities.
Two restaurants plus a cafeteria, deli and a real deal Vermont General Store offer a wide variety of dining choices for families. For those who like to cook in, the real deal Vermont General Store sells everything you need to make your own meals or to grab a fantastic homemade meal from the deli. Fireside Flatbread located in the main base lodge, serves up wood-fired pizza for lunch and après ski. On Saturday nights, lift tickets are just $19 at the home of Vermont’s most extensive night skiing and riding, and guests can enjoy $2 pizza slices, plus sodas and beer plus a fun ski movie. The James Moore Tavern, located on the top floor of the Base Lodge, offers a great view, a warm fireplace, and live entertainment on weekends. Not to mention 18 beers on tap--including a great selection of local brews. Signature soups, fried ravioli, Bolton’s in-demand angus burger, or any other well-crafted offerings can be found each night.
