The Wintry Wander

presented by
Bolton Valley Resort



Enjoy a fun adventure in a snowy wonderland! Designed for families and teams with children, the Wintry Wander will let your group snowshoe on and around the beautiful trails at the Bolton Valley Resort.

You’ll start the event by receiving a special trail map marked with various points. Some will be on trails and easy to find, while others may be a bit off trail and more challenging. It’s completely up to you how many of what type you try to find. The goal is to have a great time outside in the snow!

You can finish as early as you like or take as long as you like, as long as you’re back by 1:00 p.m., when the cocoa starts cooling down. You won’t want to miss that!


Saturday, March 2nd 2019, beginning at 10:00 in the morning. See the schedule for full details.


The cost of participation will be $5 per person if preregistered, $10 per person for event day registrations. UPDATE: We’ve had difficulty with our online registration system, so we will only have race day registration at the bargain price of $6 per person! Anyone young enough that they’ll be in a backpack or pulled on a sled is free! Teams may be as big as you like.

Prize categories are likely to include:

  • Best Team Name
  • Snowiest Team
  • Most Cheerful Hearts
  • Most On-trail Points
  • Most Off-trail Points


Our host venue will be the Bolton Valley Resort. Registration will be on-site at the Nordic Center. Here are directions to the resort.


The schedule for the Wintry Wander is laid back and focused on giving people enough time to have a fun day in the woods. We encourage people to arrive and check in by 9:30 so they will be ready for a group start at 10 – you’ll have a better experience if you use the full time to look at the map as a team. If you can’t make it till later though, no problem!

Take as long or as little time as you like on the course, but please return to the Nordic Center by 1:00 p.m. to have a warm drink and be there for the event wrap-up.
