I don't understand what their problem is... Bolton is a sick spot and super unique, but the only people who give it any time are locals, which is fine... What I can't understand is if they're trying to get kids to go there, why not pour all their money that would go to turbines and other useless bullshit and expand their park. If they had an all park section, or made some of their super flat cruisers into rail gardens, and made their lodge a little cooler they could capitalize on the ever growing freestyle market and become a cool "destination" that people outside Burlington would actually know about... the future isn't about mountain casters it's about getting the new gapers... people who watch the x-games, and soon olympic pipe and slope? and want to ride somewhere with a nice park... look at how huge mt. snow is now...
So my suggestions to them:
1.Build a good park this year
2.Expand the park to larger areas of the mountain.
3.promote it as a place that is park friendly, so that kids won't leave to go to stowe (which is overpriced and out of the way) as soon as they're old enough to drive.
4. Get a high speed quad... if people can lap the mountain in 2 mins. it'll be a huge draw... don't believe me look at Jiminy peak (which I don't think is a good model to follow, but their lifts made a huge difference for them.)
5. Get a cool shop and a lodge that doesn't feel so shitty. this isn't the 70's anymore T.V's in the lodge and xbox are a cheap way to make a place more friendly.
