Mad River Glen


Today was another adventurous packed powder day. Despite the recent warm weather, the mountain’s snowpack has remained primarily unchanged. The rock and ice layers from earlier in the season are starting to creep back to the surface on the steeper terrain but soft turns are still easy to find on the flanks of the trails. Starting this afternoon and carrying through the night into the morning, there is the potential for some mixed precipitation. The rain-snow line is constantly moving and getting a good determination of which side General Stark’s Mountain will end up on is tricky. The potential for wet snow, mixed with ice, sleet and rain, is considerable. The mountain operations team will be on the slopes before the dawn to assess the conditions and groom beginner and main thoroughfares into the base area. Ski patrol will take to the slopes before the lifts start spinning, keeping as much terrain open as possible. Be sure to stay tuned to the conditions page for the most up-to-date information. Please be aware and ski with care, let’s all have a long and healthy 2020 ski season!

On Sunday the Single Chair, Sunnyside Double and Practice Slope will spin from 8:30AM until 4:00PM. Callie’s Corner Handle Tow and the Birdland Double will be open between 10AM and 3PM. If you’re thinking about visiting the mountain remember that your best deal can always be found in advance online, purchase tickets ahead of time and save!

Each and every Saturday and Sunday at 10:30AM you can join one of our Naturalists for a guided snowshoe trek tailored to your interests in the ecology and wildlife of Stark Mountain! Our outings and content vary each week, depending snow conditions and participants. Learn about the hardwood forests of the Green Mountains, as well as our resident moose, bear, deer, fisher, coyote, red fox and more! Snowshoe rentals available for only $5 with the program, register at the ski school desk!

Uphill travel is NOT permitted today during lift operations, we also ask that you please leave your dogs at home.
