The campaign-funded trail crew has wrapped up for the season after working on more than 15 trails, several glades, and the work road. Crews have been busy cutting back growth in selected areas that has encroached on our trails over the last two decades. Keeping our trails and glades in great shape is a perfect use of donation dollars!
The long-awaited Birdcage project has started with the pouring of footings for a new wrap-around deck that will be a great place to hang out on sunny days! This is the beginning of our efforts to revitalize the Birdland area. More news coming soon!
Installation is now complete of new lifting frames on the Practice Slope lift, thanks to your donations! The frames will make maintenance much safer for our loyal staff and also greatly facilitate ongoing lift work. Later this year a new variable-speed drive will be installed. The drive will be more energy-efficient and make loading easier for small kids.
Today is Roll Back the Clock Day! Celebrate Mad River Glen's history with $3.50 lift tickets and help preserve our mountain's future. Round up your ticket purchase and donate the difference to the Preserve Our Paradise campaign. For example, make it an even $20 and $16.50 will go to immediately towards our important initiatives, and you'll enjoy a pretty cheap day of skiing to boot!
