While some may be counting down the days until spring, those of us who love all that winter brings take advantage of each and every day we get. When you live in the beautiful area of Vermont that we are privileged to call home, winter fun is around every corner! Just an hour from our bed and breakfast is a fantastic outdoor paradise called Bolton Valley. If you’ve been waiting to plan a ski weekend getaway, this is a great resort to check out and an easy drive from Middlebury, VT.
Located higher up in the Green Mountains, this unique alpine village is surrounded by over 5,000 acres of breathtaking scenery. You’ll find 71 trails and glades and another 100km of Nordic and backcountry trails. They receive an average of over 300 inches of snow every year so the conditions are usually perfect any day of the week. So, whether your passion is skiing, snowboarding, Nordic or telemark, or snowshoeing, you’ll find an abundance of places to explore. There is a great ski and snowboard school if you are new to the slopes and you can get refueled or totally relax in the cafeteria or one of two restaurants. Ride under the lights during night skiing or try new tricks in their popular terrain park. Every Monday they also offer a 50% discount for folks aged 50 and over! Something else to note is that they are one of only two ski resorts in the U.S. to implement wind power as an energy source and they use biodegradable and recyclable products throughout the resort. They appreciate their place in nature and do their best to pay it forward.
Coming up February 27th, 2016 they also have their Mountain Dew Vertical Challenge. It is a free family event where you can have a ton of fun on the slopes and win some great prizes and giveaways.
At the end of a full day on the mountain, you can come back and put your feet up by the fire with a glass of wine or hot chocolate in hand and relax to your heart’s content. And don’t forget about the gourmet breakfast you will wake up to in the morning! It is a perfect weekend getaway – some skiing, some relaxing, and some time for YOU!
