Mow Crew!
Sep 13 @ 7:00 am – Sep 24 @ 3:00 pm

Mow some grass, earn your pass! Mow crew is the best way to get an intimate look at all of the nooks and crannies of Stark Mountain, burn some calories and make new ski buddies.

A little run down on how we mow our trails…  We use hand scythes to cut the grass, ferns and shrubs on the steepest slopes here at Mad River Glen. Most of the beginner and intermediate terrain is mowed with a tractor, mow crew steps in to finish off the areas the tractor can’t go. We mow and move in a line shoulder-to-shoulder hiking up the trails as we go. It can be tough work but the camaraderie makes it so much fun! Truly, it is rewarding and at the end of the 10 days, you’ll have a full season ski pass and some cash in your pocket. Not only that but you will likely have learned something about the terrain you didn’t already know and you’ll have gained a couple of new ski buddies.

The day begins at 7:00 am and we mow until about 3:00 pm with many short breaks in between. A backpack with a hydration pack is highly recommended and you should also pack yourself enough food to get you through the day. There will be water stations along the route to refill your containers and likely a ride down on the chairlift at the end of the day to ease the knees. Most people wear pants and long sleeves to fend off bugs and protect them from the sun but a few hardy folks go shorts and tees, everyone wears hiking boots – no exceptions. We will provide the scythe, a pair of work gloves, a sharpening stone/tools and water.

If you’re interested in joining the mow crew this fall please send an email to ry@madriverglen.com.

Pop Up Covid-19 Vaccination Site
Oct 2 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

On Saturday, October 2nd, Mad River Glen will be hosting a pop-up COVID-19 vaccination site facilitated by the Waterbury Ambulance Service. Anyone who receives a FREE vaccination shot will then be given a ticket to ride the Single Chair (valid Saturday only) for fall foliage leaf-peeping. The Waterbury Ambulance Service will be administering free Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccination shots to any eligible individual 12 years or older. No advanced reservations are required.

From the State of Vermont Department of Health website:

Vaccines are the best tool to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Vaccines help your body fight off the virus. When you are vaccinated you are much less likely to get sick and less likely to transmit the virus to others. Anyone who is not vaccinated is still vulnerable to experiencing the worst of COVID-19 and can continue spreading the virus. The more people who get vaccinated, the fewer chances for transmission and mutations, and the faster we can end the COVID-19 pandemic.

Allen Clark Memorial Hill Climb
Oct 3 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

The Allen Clark Memorial Hill Climb — the annual grunt-fest that has fast become a rite of cycling passage in the Mad River Valley — is a grueling time trial that rises 1,600 vertical feet in 6.2 miles, from the intersection of Routes 100 and 17 to the top of Appalachian Gap.

The event is named in honor of long-time Mad River Valley resident, Allen Clark. An avid cyclist who took up biking late in life, he rode 2,500-3,000 annually in Vermont. Allen especially loved the challenge of the Appalachian Gap. This event is a tribute to Allen’s life and a fundraiser for Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports, an organization that meant a great deal to him.

Awards will be held on the 3rd floor of the Basebox (or on the deck if the weather is nice) from 11:00 – 12:30 PM.
