Summary:
Heard a rumor the lifts were turning for biking back in June, but can't confirm. Otherwise, the lifts at Bolton have been closed since '07. Many of the trails and features are still very ridable, some are even better then before, thanks to trail work by dedicated locals. Hope the rumors are true, Bolton terrain is best in it's class!

Summary:
I can't believe nobody has reviewed Bolton since 2005. Well let me just say GET UP THERE! The place has been super buffed out with tons of work on drainage and trail flow. Not to mention some of the newer features like the Sobe Bus Hit, a veritable work of art. Thanks, Todd! So, suffice it to say that the place is going off. Get up there as soon as you can. You won't be disappointed.

Recommended Route:
One of many sweet routes down the slopes at Bolton is to start from summit on Coleslaw, traverse to the Waterfall Gap, rip it then traverse to Little Rock via the Little Rock traverse trail, rip the Little Rock and descend from there via trail 7 to the baselodge.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
All of the trails on Bolton rip.

Summary:
I can't believe nobody has written a review since 2005! Well, let me just say briefly that alot has happened up at Bolton since then. The place is OFF THE CHARTS! GET UP THERE! Tons of new features, tons of new trail work/management. Alot of nasty wet and rooty sections have been dealt with recently. The place is flowing like never before. And not to mention some new recent lines, and the beautifully crafted Sobe-Bus Hit (thanks Todd for your artistic eye!) The parking lot scene is awesoom to boot, with lots of people chillin' with barby grills, etc. I would summarize in three words: GET UP THERE!

Recommended Route:
A nice tour, and perhaps the route of a "Super B" race in the future is to rip Cole Slaw off the summit, traverse to the Waterfall Gap, rip it then traverse over to the LITTLE Rock Hit, hit it then descend trail 7 to base area, where there are cold beers waiting in the Cafe.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
You will enjoy all the tours on the mountain. But just a little warning: when Todd labels a trail a double black diamond, you better respect it.

Summary:
Bolton Valley just plain kicks ass. This is the absolute best downhill riding in VT. Every trail we rode was awesome. I had more fun here than any of the other ski resorts I've ridden. Its a shame they are only open one weekend a month. The natural steepness and terrain was amazing and the built stunts were great. In my opinion Killington and Mt Snow don't even come close to what Bolton Valley has to offer. I'll say it again, Bolton Valley is the BEST downhill riding VT has to offer period. I can't wait to get there again. Too bad its a 6hr drive for me, but worth every minute.

Recommended Route:
Trails 2, 5, and 6 were probably my favorites. #2 has some nice man made stunts. I can't remember if it was 5 or 6, but one of them has a sweet bridge drop about 8ft or so tall that drops out over a small stream to little bit of a transition landing. It really don't matter much which trail you ride there, because they were all challenging. You definately gotta have the skills to pay the bills to ride Bolton Valley.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
If you want easier stuff go to Killington or Mt Snow. If you want real downhill, go to Bolton Valley.
