Mad River Glen is off to an early season, reporting another “6 inches” over the past 24 hours, on top of a few inches from earlier this week. They are calling it “fast grass” which I think is very fitting! Interestingly, this year marks Mad River’s 60th Anniversary, and they have published a book in honor of the occasion: A Mountain Love Affair, which you can buy right off the website: https://www.madriverglen.com/gear/?action=browse&ID=101
For those of you who don’t know Mad River, it is a very neat no-snowmaking, no-snowboarding, no-frills mountain in Fayston, Vermont, with an old-world vibe and amazing New England terrain. A little like the Alta of the east. If you haven’t been, check it out; its really worth the trip!
