Full review

This is the first year our grop visited Bolton Valley. I have been wanting to go for years, and they were offering a sectacular deal, so we decided to make the trek North (over 5 hour drive)-and we are so glad we decided to go!
The terrain has a lot of variation-easy beginner trails to good tree skiing, and a small terrain park. This year I went with a group and next season I would like to bring my daughter to see how she feels about it. We loved the convenience of the ski in-ski-out hotel at the base. the hotel needs some updating but at least it is clean. It has a few restaurants and a great bar to hang out with friends at. Not much nightlife but that is fine with us-we like to relax after a long day skiing. The staff was nice and helpful at all times. We will certainly be returning to Bolton next season.
