Had an awesome family trip today up at Bolton Valley with my father and brother, they received 7″ of snow since yesterday and were also offering 15 dollar holiday lift tickets. I had never quite experienced the crowds that this smokin’ deal brought in and it was a bit shocking at first but A few good powder turns and some friendly smiles from the lifties made everything numb again. There was a sense of anxiety coming from everyone that you could feel in the lift line but once the skis were pointed downhill again, you can bet your ass it was back to the white room.
I want to give a huge shout out to the Bolton employees for staying patient and friendly all day long, there was some serious crowding issues and they carried themselves professionally and friendly, for that I am appreciative. Next time you get on the lift, give the guy a hello and a thank you, a little smile goes a long way.
Lucas is headed to Vail! Have fun bro, don’t mangle those JJ’s anymore than they already are……(more information/photos to come on this topic) Here’s a little more Bolton stoke to add to the archives, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and pray for this weekend’s coastal snow event to pummel the mountains!
Here is Part 1 of today’s video, Part 2 up soon:

Looks like some warm weather this week, very little chance of snowfall in the hills until Thursday so enjoy the Fall while it lasts. Few videos from around the web.

The Canadian Rockies are awesome and these guys do a great job of encompassing the whole experience. Here are a few videos they put out recently, also check out their Facebook Fan site.

Edit: We don’t know these guys but Mammoth got an early season teaser with something near 5 inches, check out this little pre-season, first-of-the-season edit..
Saw this last season but it’s still a classic, some amazing angles.
Here is a little bonus deep shot straight from Cody Townsend’s live feed last season at Jackson Hole.
