Pond Skimming 2010

If it's the end of the season, you know it has to be time for wet, shivering cold bodies. That's right it's time for Pond Skimming. Pull out those tight bell bottoms, bedazzle your self in rhinestones, and glue on some chest hair and a mustache; 70's is the theme for this years extravaganza. The mountain's most popular spring event, Pond Skimming is always the biggest party of the season. The entry fee is just $5 per skimmer. Everyone must also have a lift ticket or season pass to enter.


10am - Noon Registration in the base lodge

1pm - The skimming will begin

3pm (or shortly after the skimming is competed) - Awards

Even if you don't have the stomach to challenge our pond, this is always a great spectator event, with music, a DJ, and spectacular splashes.

Videos and Progresssession

Oh my god, it is finally here! The Bolton Valley edit from 3TrioProductions featuring: LP Beaudoin, Nuka Choquette, Alex Crépault, Andrew Jamieson, and that camel. You know which one I'm talking about, right there on route 2. I have the video embedded on our side wall, but you can also find it and many other edits from the Canadian crew at:
We also had our first Progresssession the other day at Bolton Valley Family Fun Day. Kids 12 and under had a great and safe time throwing it down in the Progression Park on Sunday. Our winners for 12 and under men snowboarders were Dougie "Fresh" Fay in first, Griffen Wilcox in second, and Clayton Trombley winning third place and the Smart Style Trivia Challenge Award. Our winners for 12 and under skier women were McKenna in first, Grace in second, and Amanda in third. Our winners for 12 and under skier men were Liem in first and Max in second.

Shout Outs and FYI's

Yesterday we had an amazing crew of skiers come and film in the Butterscotch Park. I would like to thank the Canadian 3trioproductions for throwing down, letting us watch, and for being extremely polite. We're glad we could provide you with hardcore shots and hope you come back next year. Check out their numerous film edits at:
Well we are coming to the end of the year and that means one thing: pond skimming. The Mountain Manager will start building the pond on Tuesday, and he will be using the snow from the hip, the pole jam, and possibly the barrel quarter pipe (minus the barrels). So this is the last weekend for those features.
Lastly, the Progression Park will be closed from 12:30-2:30 for Progresssession on Sunday. We've got some fun little prizes for eight "Best In Show" winners, and a Smart Style prize for the competitor who displays the best Smart Style etiquette. Hope to see you all there.

We got some recognition from another blogger the other day. 3 Tri Guys is a blog about three guys aspiring to become triathletes. Check out their story about taking trips to a few different mountains, and of course what they had to say about us: http://3triguys.blogspot.com/2010/03/jason-week-3-rev-3-olympic-training.html

Night Rider Awards Photos

Congratulation to all our winners in the Night Rider Series. A special congrats goes out to Gabe Cohn for winning the Sam Cohn Award. This year we didn't have as many older participants as usual, but Gabe came to every event, enthused and ready to throw down. Thank you to all our competitors for keeping the series alive and making it such a fun event to host. We hope to see all our participants again next year.

Night Riders Series Finals

We've finally come to the final night of the series. Just like last year, competitors have the chance to triple their earnings through our three feature jam. Each age group will rotate between a rail jam, a jump jam, and a mystery jam. If you're worried you don't have enough points to win some sweet shwag, Wednesday night is the night to redeem yourself. There is always the shwag toss to grab some cool stuff as well. See you Wednesday you riders of the night.

Jungle Jib Comes Back With A Vengeance

We worked all day on Friday to get the Jungle Jib open for this weekend, and it is epic. Here are some photos , but it is still worth seeing up close. So take a ride through the JJ and get reacquainted with an old friend with a new face.

Unfortunate News

The Red Bull Buttercup has been canceled and will not be rescheduled due to conflicting schedules with other vendors and sponsors :( We apologize to all those who were excited for the event; maybe next year.
