Full review

Mad River Glen is one of a kind. The expert terrain is out of this world. But that's not all MRG has to offer, I was pleasantly surprised at the intermediate and beginner trails offered.

The facilities are mediocre but when you go to MRG it's like taking a trip back in time. The single chair is a lot of fun but I will admit that after a few runs you start to wish you had someone to ride up the chair with. The old school feel is great but it can get frustrating when you are spending so much time on the lifts. But slow lifts or not Mad River offers the best terrain you can find on the east coast.

Get here any way you can!
