Mad River Glen


After a brief hiatus we’ve retuned to more favorable, winter-like conditions here on General Stark Mountain. On Wednesday the Mountain Operations team opened up the snowmaking system, with abundant water flow and perfect temperatures an impressive amount of snow was made in short time. Guns were strategically placed in the Base Area and Birdland and their efforts will enable us to re-open the main mountain this weekend. On Saturday we will open with the Sunnyside Double and Practice Slope chairlifts. Terrain off of the main mountain will be limited, check back tomorrow morning for a detailed trail count and conditions report. Tickets at the window will be $59 for adults or $47 for juniors and seniors, if you purchase online ahead of time the daily rate will be $39 (must be purchased online by mid-night the night before). Sunday is the last day to buy Mad Cards for the season, lock down the lowest ticket prices of the season before this deal goes away!

The General Store, Ticket Booth, Rental & Repair Shop are open today from 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM for your pre-season & holiday shopping needs. Callie’s Cricket Club is open taking reservations for the weekend and holiday period. The cafeteria will serve breakfast and lunch this weekend, Stark’s Pub will open up at 11am for lunch service and Après with last call at 6pm.

Uphill travel
 is permitted today. This weekend uphill travel will be closed during operating hours.

If you’re out of town you can always keep an eye on all the action via Mad River Valley Real Estate webcams. Thanks to our friends at Cabot Creamery Cooperative for the awesome new snow stake, watch the snow pile up at Mad River Glen no matter where you are!
