New Uphill Travel Policy

We were caught in a little snow squall yesterday, picking up 3" of fluff and nothing makes me want to hit the slopes more than new snow falling from the sky. It also makes me yearn for steep & deep effortless pow turns later in the season when our backcountry fills in. Sadly, we're not quite there yet, thanks to Mother Nature's latest cruel joke, but give it a few more weeks. 

Since it's not quite deep or soft enough to trek through our 100km of backcountry terrain, some people might be jonesing to get their uphill winter hike on and test out some new gear on our alpine slopes. We understand, empathize with and appreciate your enthusiasm for skiing with us. That's why, this season, we've outlined a brand new Uphill Travel Policy designed to allow our guests to skin or splitboard uphill both during and outside of operating hours. Please read the guidelines through before attempting to skin or hike uphill, stay only on highlighted routes and obey the restrictions set forth. Happy hiking!

Bolton Valley 2014-15 Uphill Travel Policy



Uphill travel on skis is permitted at Bolton Valley. Skiers are advised to adhere to the following guidelines:
  • During hours when lifts are open, uphill skiers must have a lift ticket for the day, season pass, Nordic day ticket for the day, or Nordic season pass. Uphill skiers do so at their own risk.
  • During hours when lifts are not open, uphill skiers access Bolton Valley property at their own risk and do not need a ticket or a pass.
  • AT ALL TIMES the two routes designated for uphill skiing are:
    • Wilderness: Turnpike to Peggy Dow’s
    • Timberline: Twice as Nice to Woods Hole to Brandywine
    • Access to uphill skiing is limited to theses routes both during and outside of operating hours. 
    • No uphill traffic is permitted to the top of Vista.
  • Skiers should stay to their left when traveling uphill.
  • Please form single file lines when skiing uphill.
  • No dogs.
  • No snowshoes. Access is limited to skiers and split snowboards only.
  • Use headlamp and reflective clothing at night.
  • Do not travel alone. Always have at least one other person with you.
  • In case of an emergency when lifts are open contact Ski Patrol at 802-434-6892. Please carry a cell phone.
  • In case of an emergency when lifts are closed call 911.
