Welcome to Vermont's Mad River Valley, New England's only authentic ski town. Two legendary mountain resorts—Sugarbush and Mad River Glen—provide a kick-ass combination of terrain and challenge. Sprinkled throughout the Valley you'll discover an eclectic blend of restaurants, shops, inns and taverns. No matter where you turn in the Mad River Valley you'll feel welcome—maybe because of the lack of stoplights and fast food joints, or maybe it's just something in the air. Whatever the reason, it's a vibe that's hard to define, and impossible to forget.
