Off Piste in the Mad River Valley – Dec 2010

A good 5-7″+ inches of creamy powder snow blanketed Vermont’s General Stark Mountain (home to Mad River Glen ski area) on Wednesday night. With the holiday week ahead, and the official opening of MRG scheduled for today (12/24), this surprise snowfall could not have been better timed… Nor could it have been more fun to ski! It’s going to be a great week to ski in the northeast.

Happy holidays to everyone! See you in the mountains!

    Have fun skiing this week 😉
