Bolton Valley Resort

Bolton Valley is excited to announce that on July 1, 2021 mountain bike lift operations will begin anew with lift service to the top of Vista Peak.

Bolton Valley’s long established network of raw, rowdy and ripping downhill trails is already the stuff of legend; from the VTFR days of lift service some 15 years ago to the burgeoning community of enduro enthusiasts that have pedaled up to get down for the last 10+ years – the network of trails has long attracted the region’s best riders looking to progress their skills.

The Bolton Valley Bike Park will open this summer on the existing trail network serving intermediate to advanced riders only. The Resort is currently working with the state to secure the necessary permits for more than 7 miles of new trail. Bolton’s full time trail crew looks forward to building these new trails in partnership with Gravity Logic to augment the existing network of trails as soon as the permits are in place. Gravity Logic is known the world over for building unique trails suited for all ages and ability levels. Together they look forward to adding more flow, jump lines and beginner green trails in the year(s) to come.

Season passes will go on sale Monday, May 24. Single day use tickets for both lift tickets and ‘trail only’ (pedal uphill) access will go on sale Friday, May 28. Bolton Valley will continue to offer uphill access for those that prefer the pedal to the lift, but all trail access will require a valid ticket or a pass. Trail conditions and mountain operations permitting, Bolton will open Memorial Day weekend for pedal access.

Bolton Valley is also excited to offer mountain bike rentals, lessons, summer camps, races and events this summer, including a Maxxis Eastern States Cup Downhill and Enduro race August 1, 2021.
