Greetings from Mad River Glen,

School is back in session and mow crew has finished laying down the ferns, which means we’re ready to celebrate the unofficial end of summer and we’re doing it in style! There’s a lot happening this Labor Day Weekend here in the Mad River Valley so let’s get started…

Tonight THE GRIFT TURNS 20!! This is an all ages’ show, so bring your family too. Kids under 12 get in free. 4pm gates open, 6pm showtime, rain or shine. TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT! WILL CALL TICKETS AVAILABLE FOR PICK UP AT THE GATE BEGINNING AT 4PM.

General Stark’s Pub is going to be open this weekend with the exception of Saturday evening for The Grift concert. Saturday evening the Pub will shut down regular service but food and drink will still be available. The Pub will continue to pour beers from 4pm until 11pm, food will be available from the cafeteria side from 4pm until 10pm. On Sunday we can all recover over brunch on the deck with some fresh air, Pub hours will be 10am until 2pm.

The General Store will be open today come up and grab some gifts from our end of the summer clearance sale. Saturday hours for the General Store will be 3pm until 6pm. This is the last time the General Store will be open until new items arrive and are on the shelf the weekend of September 28th so don’t miss out on some hot deals before they’re gone!

Chilly mornings and foliage creep only means one thing; ski season will be sure to follow quickly so jump on the best deals of the season for Passes, Mad Cards and of course, those FREE 12 & Under Kids Passes.
