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.

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.
