Bolton has nice groomed loops for XC skiing. If you're extra adventurous bring a headlamp and go at night. Buy your tickets at the Nordic Center where the in-door pool is. There is a small snack bar area with light food and beer. You can also pack meals and eat them there.

Downhill skiing and snowboarding, and XC skiing. Great value, and great terrain. If you're new to skiing or snowboarding they offer packages for lift tickets, lessons and equipment rentals that are less expensive. This is a great place to learn. Wood fired pizza upstairs in the lodge with craft brews is the best way to enjoy lunch or post snow session. There's also a fun zone with bouncy castles, an indoor skate park and indoor swimming pool, hot tub & sauna.

Lots of terrain for all levels. You're gonna pay more for a lift ticket so you better get first chair. Good for intermediate to advanced snow riders.

Sightseeing in & around Richmond, VT
Not all the sights are located here, we have some other gems for you when you arrive depending on what you're looking for.
In the winter it a great mellow hill for sledding. Summer weekends the church might be open to take a peek inside. No one knows for sure why its round, some say it so the devil can't hide, we think it's great for making up your own conclusions.

Great food, great beer section and great vibe. They have a kids menu and etch a sketchs en masse for the kiddos or the kids at heart. In the summer they have creemees (more than soft serve - a way of life) and bacon sprinkles (yes chocolate and rainbow too). I recommend the maple creemee with bacon sprinkles.

Do you like butter? If so this is your jam. So MANY amazing pastries, homemade bagels, soup, coffee, smoothies and deliciousness. Eat inside, outside or take it to go, but please you must get something from there - you will not regret it. We love to sit in window eating a bagel and lox and morning glory muffin and pretend we're on a date.

Super local. Food is "fine" but you go there for the value and the looks they will serve as in "you're not from around here" but we're still good.
