There have been a lot of questions floating around, and we’re sorry we weren’t able to post this earlier, but here are some answers:
Why does the website refer only to “6km of Nordic terrain” available to ski in the 2011-2012 season?
The general answer to this question is that there is a land sale in the works in which a large parcel of land that contains the majority of the Nordic skiing groomed and backcountry trail system. The Nordic center will return next season and will operate with 6km of trails made up of Valley Loop, Picnic Loop, Pond Loop, World Cup and Broadway to the Water Company Shed. The sale will be to a private individual and though there is no plan for major development on the land, there is currently no easement or agreement to use the existing trail network beyond those 6km of trails.
Season passes for next year are now on sale, but there’s no Nordic pass listed on the website. Is it possible to buy those in advance?
Due to the anticipated change in available Nordic terrain, it is unclear if Bolton will sell 2011/2012 Nordic Season Passes. Currently there is no option to buy Nordic Season Passes early. More information will be available in the early fall. If you have more questions regarding Nordic Season Passes please contact Josh Arneson, Marketing Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What about the rest of this season? Can I still come ski Bolton backcountry this spring?
Yes! We’re still fully open for the rest of this season, and the March skiing should be fabulous. As we said, nothing is certain yet, but why not come take advantage of the backcountry terrain while you definitely still can?
We look forward to seeing you during a sunny (so far anyway) March!
