Such amazing skiing, even in the spring. Old fashioned mountain with a nice laid back vibe. Terrain available for all levels of experience. Don't be intimidated by the number stickers, you CAN ski it (maybe not ALL of it, but there is beginner terrain available). The bar/restaurant is a nice plus. Nothing fancy here, just a good ole' New England... More

As an avid snowboarder and part time skier, I was a little skeptical about this place. But the people are very nice, the terrain is awesome and the pub was very laid back. They take their pride in skiing without being outwardly negative to riders. We had a good time.

WE went hicking to MRG and we had fun. Trails are nice and there is a few stop to do and things to see. Fun to do with the young family while waiting for the winter season!

We made it about halfway up the mountain, using a mix of service (dirt) road, ski trails and small paths. Will definitely try again!

WINTER -> Allow me to put my review in context and in perspective. Both my sons worked at Killington, both skied for their college ski teams, and both skied many venues in both the U. S. A. in Canada and in Europe. Whenever they could they came to Mad to ski. They love Mad. I confess to being a qualified... More

What can be said about Mad River Glen that hasn't been said 1,000 times? The single chair is awesome -- last one anywhere, as far as I know. But you gets trails to yourself. The terrain? It goes from "easy" all the way up to "you have got to be kidding me". The people --both fellow customers and employees --... More

What can I say the is not known. Unique and unlike any other ski area or resort. The single chair may mean more in line and on the chair, but it also means very light traffic on the trails and better conditions. Just like a golf course, light traffic = great course conditions. It's Pure Vermont... or as they say... More

Visited MRG for a mid week 5 day ski Feb. 9-13, 2015. Woke up to a 12" snow storm and then two more 4" storms later that week. Wow the conditions were great and all natural snow. I got my tickets on Liftopia and the average daily price was $35.00, what a bargain (regular day ticket is $60.00). If you've... More

If you are looking to travel back in time as a skiier, this is the place for you. I was a little hesitant about the difficulty of the resort and I was fine. This place is beautiful, the trails are great and the people are hardcore! We got engaged at the top of the single chair, everyone on the mountain... More

Tldr; Thanks a lot to the Mad River Glen marketing guys for the free ski rental! Figured I’d pay you back with a review and my tale… I’m a big snowboarder and I organize ski/snowboard trips with everyone I know. This winter I was invited by one of my former professors to go on a trip up in Vermont. He’d... More
