October Snow.

Don’t miss out on the last Swap and Movie of the fall- click here for full listing.

Last night was our second snow of the season in as many weeks. It’s a good covering on the ground- at least a couple inches. We have already had a call from the CVU kids this morning- they are calling around to find a place to ski later this afternoon. It’s time to get out the rock skis. It sounds like Saranac Lake is the real story today- 12″ and a snow day.

Looking out towards Picnic Loop- there is a couple inches on the ground and lots of snow in the trees.

Ski Patrol Refresher Weekend

This weekend is Refresher for the Bolton Ski Patrol.  And this includes Alpine and Nordic Patrol.   Sat and Sun were our coldest mornings so far this year with temps in the 20s.  The Patrol had a chance to come visit the Nordic Center on Sunday.  So fun to see everyone and make plans for this winter.

Trail History Project

I have skied at Bolton Nordic Center since High School- when Gardner Lane ran the place out of that great little cabin near the top of Broadway. But it was not until I started working here last year and spent time with the Old Goats that I begin to wonder about the history of the trails. When were they built? Who built them? What were they named after? These are all questions I would like to answer with the Trail History Project.

The goal is to begin to collect this information and see where it takes us. I would like to hear from anyone | everyone who knows about the trails at Bolton Valley. Give us a call, send an email, write a note on the back of a photograph and put it in the mail. And you can also comment on this blog. We would love to hear what you know and remember about this great natural resource. I’ve got to get back to clearing trails. Liz
