About our lodge:
Our lodge is at the base of Mad River Glen, VT. Walking distance to MRG & if you can ski the trees you can ski up to our back door. It’s 10 minutes from Sugarbush, 2 hrs from Jay Peak, an hour from Stowe, 50 minutes from Bolton, and convenient to many other resorts. The lodge has 10 rooms that sleep 4 people each, each with a private bath. You bring your own linens (pillows & comforters are provided).There is a large living room with a fireplace and downstairs there is a professional kitchen that guests are welcome to use as long as there is no cook. So far there is a cook scheduled for this weekend (Saturday; breakfast & dinner, Sunday Breakfast)*, you are responsible for any other food, usually we bring lunch or buy it at the base. Sometimes we eat lunch on the lift if we don't want to stop skiing. If the cook is canceled you will be refund the food portion of the price. BYOB with your name on it if you like to have drinks. More details will follow with a "YES" response"
*you will be refunded the food portion of the rate if there is no cook
About Mad River Glen** :
MRG is legendary for its tree skiing and challenging terrain and is really a beautiful setting in which to ski. Despite its reputation though, there are plenty of beginner trails from the double lift and from the Birdland lift. If you are an intermediate skier or a daring beginner you can hop on the single chair for some blue trails. It’s really one of my favorite mountains in the east.
**MRG doesn't allow boarders but Sugarbush is right down the road.
