Mad River Glen Family Tournament
Jan 20 all-day

Mad River founder, Roland Palmedo, began what was then called, The Father/Son Race at Stowe with his colleagues in 1947.  In 1952 the event moved to his new ski area, Mad River Glen.  Over the next 5 decades the event has evolved (and become more politically correct) into the Mad River Glen Family Tournament.

Legacy Ski Club Race
Feb 15 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

This very special event brings together all of Mad River Glen’s on-mountain, legacy ski clubs for some friendly competition. Skiers from The Amateur Ski Club, Hartford Ski Club, Montclair SKi Club, Ramapo Ski Club, the White Plains Ski Club and the North Jersey Whiz Skiers will go toe to toe on the legendary Practice Slope to earn club bragging rights and individual accolades.

Our ski clubs have a rich tradition and history here at Mad River Glen. Each club is unique in its own way but all are traditional elements of the Mad River Glen experience. Our founder, Roland Palmedo, was the founder of the Amateur Ski Club of New York and he understood the value of luring other clubs to the mountain. Many of Mad River’s long-time skiers are associated with one of our on-mountain clubs and we see many third and now fourth generations of Mad River skiers still associated with their clubs. We’ve even seen a few “inter-club” marriages! Check out this story about on-mountain ski clubs at Mad River Glen.

Amateur/Montclair Ski Clubs Race – GS & SL @ MRG
Feb 16 all-day

Ski Club racing has always been a fixture on the slopes of Gen. Stark Mountain. Mad River’s founder Roland Palmedo also founded the Amateur Ski Club of NY and provided the land for an on-mountain house. A big supporter of amateur ski racing he instituted club races that endure to this day. Look out for the ASCNY yellow race bibs! Montclair or Amateur – who you got?
