Rob Rafferty from United States writes:

One of the best kept secrets of Mad River Glen is the Birdland area. This is a beautiful beginner and intermediate area serviced by a dedicated lift. The low angle terrain holds natural snow very well, is rarely skied off and groomed on a regular basis. At the base of the lift is the cozy Birdcage lodge, perfect for a hot chocolate and snack! As far as snow making, the mountain does make snow on the lower elevations and has top to bottom coverage on the Practice slope. While MRG does have exceptional expert and tree skiing, the best part is the wonder people and family friendly atmosphere.
