I don't really think that i will visit Mad River Mountain this year. I agree with all the posts before about the tubing. You pay a ridiculous price to MAYBE go down 3 times, how fun is that, you get all bundled up and take your kids to have some fun in the snow, pay for 2 hours and get to tube down 3 times. Most other areas around are not only crowded with rude groups of teenagers that are there to socialize that will not move out of your way, it would be too embarassing to them to show some common courtesy and move there conversation inside or to a social area, instead they plop there butts in groups of ten or more right in everyone's way. And the staff is just as bad, i never see them telling anyone to move it along they are just as bad with the friend socializing, oh wait i forgot they will yell at little kids, but tell one of there friends to get out of the way, that they won't do. I will not spend hard earned money for a snow day at Mad River to watch a bunch of idiots stand around doing nothing but socializing and sucking face, my advice is to go somewhere else if you want to have a good time in the snow. if you go to mad river mt, you will probably leave mad and broke.
