Head to the BV Resort for the hands-down best value and great skiing experience in Vermont. The condos and hotel rooms are super clean and we love the ski-in / ski-out to the slopes from the hotel. The BV staff treat you like family and we always get VIP / personal service every time we are at BV. The snowmaking... More

This isn't fancy, and if you hit it at the right time, it doesn't need to be. Rentals were easy, the ski boots are as comfortable - yes, comfortable - as boots can be, you'll get lots of skiing in and staff is friendly. We bought half-day lift tickets on a Tuesday and could have skied until 8pm if we'd... More

We skied at Bolton Valley for 3 days in late February primarily because it was much less expensive than Stowe. I thought it would be less intimidating to the first time skier in our group too. It is all very basic, nothing fancy at all. You can store your shoes in a cubbie and eat your packed lunch at the... More

Our son wanted to learn to ski and we selected Bolton Valley based on the reviews. Everyone was super helpful and the check-in process was easy. We had a great day on the slopes, starting out with Karl, a friendly and patient instructor, and then spending a few hours on the slopes . We had so much fun skiing that... More

We bought a Vermont Fifth Grade Passport for our kids. This hill was great. Staff are friendly. Close to Burlington where we stayed. Buying tickets in advance online made it affordable. Being able to ski until 10:00pm made it a great value. It was my son's first time on a snowboard and the small tow lift was the perfect place... More

We went there for nye 2017 with my husband. The ski area is great. But it also looks like it is also a great place for a weekend getaway! The nye celebration was great. The professional skiers performed with lights and there was a 3-4 minutes following firework show. If you are not into big city celebration and looking for... More

Don't let this smaller mountain fool you. There is plenty of great skiing and riding for all levels. It is a local favorite and yes it does get busy on weekends but once you are on the many trails you'll try to figure out where everyone went. Best trails when it is busy is Wilderness and Cobrass.

The resort is a great skiing destination. Spent the Holiday week in December of 2016. We lucked out with the weather, two feet of snow over four days. Great slopes for all levels. We stayed in the lodge, steps away from the lifts. If you are so inclined, you can stay there without ever leaving the resort. Three restaurants inside... More
