Written report

3pm Update: As anticipated, some really nice turns to be had out there in the soft snow this afternoon, but we're turning our attention to Sunday funday with some sunshine even expected to put in an appearance off and on over the course of the day. With tonight's drop in termperatures, the hard working snow making team will be back up at the top of the mountain taking advantage with all guns blazing to get Vista Lift open as soon as we possibly can, hopefully some time next week, but it will really depend on what Mother Nature gives us to work with, as always. The drop in temps also suggests fast and firm conditions out there tomorrow with similar terrain expected to greet the day from 9am to 4pm before we take Monday off from lift operations and then get back at it Tuesday to Friday from noon to 8pm.
---
We'll start this weekend much the way we closed out the opening weekend - with an expected 6 trails, 3 lifts and 1 terrain park. The snowmaking continues to make snow at every opportunity on the upper mountain and the groomers laid down a nice corduroy carpet on the lower mountain where we'll spin Mid Mountain, Snowflake and Mighty Mite from 9am to 4pm today and tomorrow. We're also excited to debut two new features in Hide Away terrain park, bringing us to 5 total - 4 metal hits and 1 snow jump - with things taking a step up from last weekend's more progression focused park.

 

As always, stay tuned right here as we open everything up this morning to "Know Before You Go." That refresh button in the upper corner is your friend.

Today we're looking at potential for light, ahem, *unfrozen precipitation*, particularly in the morning hours. But if you can bare a little wet weather, we're expecting a pretty good day of skiing and riding with the holiday/opening weekend crowds behind us, and what we anticipate will be shorter lifts lines, soft snow, and warm afternoon temperatures. We expect the precipitation to be quite light throughout the day and particularly in the afternoon. And lest you have any doubt abot the possibilities out there today, we're gonna go ahead and call it... we think the local pro shoots their shot this aftenroon for the best skiing and riding guest experience of the weekend. That may just be the sweet spot this weekend for skiing and riding as we see it.

Hope to see you around the mountain soon!

Season Pass pickup:

1. If you reloaded your BV MTN Card, go straight from your car to the lift. Occasionally your first swipe of season will get declined as the gate is literally finalizing encoding to your card. Simply swipe again and you should be good to go.

2. If you need a new card and you bought online, simply search your email inbox for "Bolton WebShop" and find the purchase confirmation email. If there is a PDF attached called "VOUCHER" you can scan the QR code at an automated pickup box and it will print your pass right out for you. Pick up boxes are located between the two main breezeways in main base area on the clocktower side of base lodge (not slope side).

3. Didn't buy online and need a new card? Go right to the Ticket Cube (located in secondary breezeway in main base area). Thank you in advance for your patience as we may have some lines this opening weekend.
