Mad River Glen will open on Friday . We scored a solid 12"-16" of fluffy powder in the recent storm and are happy to report that chillier air has moved in enabling us to maximize our snowmaking potential.
On Friday we'll ne offering up skiing serviced by the Sunnyside Double from 9 am to 3:45 pm. On Saturday and Sunday we'll be spinning the Single Chair, the Sunnyside Double and the Practice Slope from 8:30 am to 3:45 pm. An exact trail count will have to wait until we get closer to opening day. Rest assured that we will do our collective darnedest to get as much of the main mountain open as possible. Stay tuned for updates.
Rumor has it that Santa Claus himself will be skiing with us on Saturday. Bring the kids up for photos with the big guy on the Single Chair from 3 to 5 pm. There will even be some rails set up for the jibbers uphill from the base area. Kind of wonder if Santa will bust a few of them out, wouldn't want to miss that!
There are so many reasons to come up to the mountain beyond just the skiing. The General Store is a great place to score gifts for the skier in your life. The cafeteria will be open for breakfast and lunch for those wanting to get their first burger or Egg McMad of the season. General Stark's Pub will open up for the season for lunch and apres-ski with a heaping helping of that famous Mad River Glen conviviality and a wide selection of Vermont's finest local brews. Get a Mad Card or two as a gift and/or pick up your season pass before the first powder day, the ticket office is at your service from 8 am to 4 pm, 7 days a week. The Rental/Repair Shop will be open for tune-ups and mounts and be sure to ask them about a season tune-up pass! Speaking of season passes.
