Maple Loop / Bolton Valley Professional Review and Guide

"Bolton Valley is known to free-heelers for a couple of things. First, it’s the starting point for one of Vermont’s premier backcountry point to point skis—the Bolton-Trapp Trail. The 12-mile ungroomed adventure takes skiers over a flank on 3,840-foot Bolton Mountain and deposits them at Stowe’s Trapp Family Lodge.

The Bolton-Trapp Trail isn’t the only playground for three-pinners. The Bolton Valley Nordic Center has more than 60 miles of trails with only about 20 miles of them groomed. Telemark skiers can ski on the state-long Catamount Trail, other backcountry runs, or find the glades laced all over the network. Bolton Valley is also known for its elevation. At 2,035 feet, the center lays claim to the highest elevation in the East of any cross-country ski network. Surface quality: Groomed, single track, skate."

The article cites Bolton’s base elevation (2,035 feet) as the highest of any cross-country trail system in the East. I’m afraid this is incorrect. Prospect Mountain in Woodford, VT has the highest base elevation of any cross-country trail system in the East at 2,250 feet.
