Logo   Bolton Valley Ski Resort, Vermont
Bolton Valley is a family and learning-skier resort not far from Stowe and Burlington, Vermont.



Vermont's Bolton Valley Ski Resort is a complete, self-contained ski resort in the valley at the end of a steep 4-mile (6.5-km) climb up a winding road (map).

Located eight miles north of Interstate 89 between Vermont's largest city of Burlington and its capital, Montpelier, Bolton gets lots of local skiers from those cities, especially college students from the University of Vermont and Champlain College.

The Interstate makes it a convenient choice for out-of-towners as well.

Bolton's three peaks and four skiing areas provide plenty of variety (see the map on the right-hand side of this page).

The vertical drop is an impressive 1704 feet (519 meters), with 64 trails (27% Beginner, 47% Intermediate, 26% Advanced/Expert) served by six lifts.

For snowboarders, there's a 1500-ft terrain park and half-pipe.

Those who don't do winter sport can stay busy at the indoor tennis and basketball courts. The child care center can watch the young ones.

The annual snowfall is also impressive, at more than 300 inches (7.62 meters).

Stowe is just around the corner, with lots more lodgings and a different skiing experience, if you'd like variety.
