Mad River Glen offers a great deal of skiing on General Stark Mountain that is strictly off-limits to snowboarders. With an enviable 250 inches of annual snowfall the home to the last surviving single chair lift in the US prides itself on the high proportion of steeper runs (20 out of 45 pistes are blacks!) the season at Mad River Glen is typically mid-December through early April. There are 800 acres of boundary to boundary off-piste access. Mad River Glen is located in central Vermont’s picturesque, Mad River Valley and is only a 3-mile drive from the Sugarbush Resort.

Visitor Reviews of Mad River Glen

Powderithacus from United States writes:

Mad River Glen is an excellent mountain for glade skiing. Find the Paradise trail and hop the frozen waterfall. If they get rain or freeze/thaw it goes downhill real fast. Little if any grooming and no snow-making.

If you are looking for a once-a-year family vacation for beginners, with fancy amenities, this is not the place for you. If you are looking to sit on the chairlift with your sweetheart, it will be kind of tough on the single chair that goes to the top. Mad River Glen is a skiers mountain, not a resort.
