There is something for everyone at MRM. My husband and I enjoy skiing, and taking our 2 boys. Our 2 1/2 year old loved the magic carpet", and our 4 year old skis the side trails with us. Our parents, in their late 60's, even tried the Avalanche tubing park. It was fun for all ages.

My husband and I decided to come here for a day get away. He doesn't ski so we opted for tubing instead. We had a really really good time. It was a lot of people but both sides seemed to move very quickly. I'v

Took the family to Mad River Mountain for a day trip. It's only 50 miles away, so it's the closest ski run we have. At 350' vertical, it's basically a sled hill. Perfect for beginners and lessons. I suppose younger skiers and boarders will like the terrain park area. It just seems like you spend most of your day in... More

After my girlfriend and me reviewed ski resorts all around our area we settled on Mad River Mountain. There are hotels and cheap packages in the area and we are first time skiers so we figured what better way then buying the lessons and all day passes? When we first arrived we felt like fish out of water. We werent... More

We have skied Mad River Mountain for 40+ years. We have skied all of the Western States, which have ski resorts. We have skied New England, Michigan, Kentucky, Indiana, and West Virginia. Seems that skiing and tennis are two sports that one acquires while studying for a university degree. Skiing at age 20, 30, 40, and 50 is fearless double... More

Four women go skiing for the first time. Well lets just say two went snow boarding while two watched or tried to help. We had a blast and yes it was cold but very fun. There are people of all ages. The only complaint is that the snow skiing\boarding is not in the same location as the snow tubing. We... More

Its a ski resort in Ohio, so I can't fault it for the location compared to other resorts in NY for instance. Expect short runs especially on their black diamonds. The good: It' my choice of the best skiing in Ohio. The terrain park is one the best I've seen. The staff was terrific. Most people their were nice. Very... More

We went the day after Christmas and had a blast. I thought the price was fair for the 3 hours of riding. The staff was very friendly and all seemed to really be into their customers enjoying the outing spending extra time to tie a family's tubes together for group rides. The tubing areas were well organized and very well... More

We've been here three times and have never been disappointed. Staff is GREAT and they never miss an opportunity to brag on their resort, so they take great pride in the place. This year, the snow was awesome, even after the massive rains in late December. They do a great job grooming. We were able to see a bit of... More
