About this...

It’s a combination of many things and for every skier the answer is a little different. Mad River Glen offers the most challenging and diverse terrain in New England with an uphill capacity that guarantees low skier density on the trails even on the busiest days. It is one of the last bastions of natural snow skiing in New England and is one of only three areas in North America that prohibit snowboarding. The trails were cut to follow the mountain’s natural contours. Skiers can descend the entire 2,037' of vertical on true expert terrain with absolutely no run-outs. On the other hand, Mad River’s mountain layout with a single base area makes it an ideal family mountain. The area’s character, the result of a long and proud history, reflects the terrain and natural beauty. There is a special camaraderie among the skiing community, with its co-op ownership, non-commercial, family-friendly atmosphere, dedicated staff, and - of course- the Single Chair, America’s favorite ski lift.
