The Lodge at
Mad River, VT
Please note The Ramapo Mountain Ski Club Trustees have voted to close the Mad River Glen lodge until the COVID-19 virus has subsided.
The reasons to close the lodge are that the country has declared a National Emergency to fight the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the recommended prevention for this fight is to stay at home, quarantine ourselves, and implement social distancing. Many state governors have closed all but essential businesses to accomplish this goal. Also the Mad River Glen Valley authorities have requested that we not visit the area because they fear that their health services will be overwhelmed. The Trustees will review this closure as the situation develops and advise the members when we can reopen the lodge.
Club member David Nelson recently took these great photos of the lodge interior. If you have never been there, these will give you a good idea of what it is like. Imagine this, though, filled with a crowd of happy, hungry skiers! We eat our meals here, and sometimes when there is a party, the tables and benches are folded and stacked. Notice, in the far corner on the wall, our ski tuning foldout station.
So - once things open up again, come on up and enjoy some great skiing at Mad River (or Sugarbush) and great cameraderie with your fellow members at the Lodge!
The lodge is situated at Mad River Glen and is a short walk to the lifts (including the famed single chair). The lodge is also a short drive to the slopes of Sugarbush Resort (for a change of pace or if you ride). The 40-person lodge has 10 bedrooms, a spacious living room with a fireplace and cathedral ceiling, and a modern kitchen and dining room. During the ski season, a chef is provided at modest cost to members and guests.
The lodge provides an excellent base for a wide range of activities year-round, including hiking, biking, swimming, golf and just relaxing in an ideal mountain location.
