Its March 24th and the Skiing is still GREAT!

Spring is official and the skiing remains with winter like conditions. We are nearly 100% open and the snow cover is really good. No trails were groomed today, but we groomed in the later afternoon yesterday.  Grooming of Broadway, Maple, Spruce, Deer Run, Beaver Pond, World Cup, Picnic, and Valley was done. Both classic and skate are recommended and the weather is going to be warming up into the mid 40’s for the rest of the week. So put on your t-shirts and get ready for some fun spring skiing.

Check out our Conditions page for lots more info.


Paul Stone took this photo on the backcountry trails Sunday, March 22. So much snow!!!

Favorite Pair of Shoes: My T-2s of course in the winter.  In the summer, Flip Flops.
Are you Hardcore? Nah, In fact my belly could stand a bit of firming
Ideal spot to ski? The woods at and around BV. Not so keen about the alpine trails.
Do you have a pet? What? Heck no.  The poor thing would suffer from extreme neglect!  But let me introduce you to my pet rocks!
Last book read? “Dreams of My Father” By Barack Obama.  Work related info. And I confess, I read Vanity Fair, where I get my gossip/junk fix.
Favorite Planet? Earth
How long have you been on the Bolton Ski Patrol? I think 6 years… Who’s counting?
What is your favorite part about being on the Ski Patrol? Skiing in the woods on Saturdays, with my ski patrol buddy, Hope. Giving directions with a friendly smile, keeping the trails free of debris. Skiing all those “not a trails” to get first hand knowledge of terrain (You never know… May come in handy some day)

How many pairs of skis do you have? 3 (Skinny skis, alpine skis, wax less back
country skis)
Favorite pair of skis? My Karhu Guides
