Sunday- Even with a mixture of sun and clouds the temperature is much more pleasant that forecast. It is above zero and the winds are minimal as of 9am. Today we welcome the Catamount Trail Association and the Get Out and Backcountry Ski Festival.  As part of this great event we have demos from the Ski Rack and EMS and clinics running in the morning and afternoon. So…get out, come on up to Bolton, and enjoy a day of skiing.

With half a foot of new snow in the last 48 hours, the backcountry trails are in great condition!  On groomed trails we have conditions of packed powder and 20km groomed for classic and skate.

Saturday- With another dusting of snow overnight conditions are great on the Nordic groomed trails and backcountry trails. At 8am it is 8 degrees and there is just a little wind. We have 20km skate and classic groomed today. Tracks are in great condition and wax of the day is green. Trail surface is packed powder on groomed trails and powder in the backcountry.

Today we are hosting The Mansfield Nordic Club- BKSL Duathlon Ski Race. The race course is Picnic Loop and start time is 1pm. This event will not interfere with our regular skier traffic– and it should be fun to watch the kids as they race.

Today is also a Bolton to Trapps tour with the Catamount Trail Organization. . . welcome to everyone doing that tour. click here to see the full list of CTA Tours.

Friday-We have four inches of new snow and the groomer just finished packing out 20km of our trails. We are currently setting tracks and it looks as though it will make for a great weekend. Today’s 20 degree weather feels balmy compared to the recent cold snap and the reports of amazing skiing are trickling in from the back country. Come on up and check it out for yourself. Today won’t dissapoint.
