Overview

Skiing in the Mad River Valley, Vermont (Images of Sports Series) by John Hilferty, Ellie Hilferty


In 1948, the first skiers to experience the steep and twisting downhill trails of Mad River Glen had to traverse muddy or frozen dirt roads to get to their destination. The warmth of a country inn was a comfort on those cold winter nights and continues as a hallmark of the Mad River Valley today. Even with the condo boom that developed after the opening of Sugarbush on Christmas Day in 1958, little has upset the ambience of the 20-mile-long valley. The valley developed a distinct personality, attracting “ski bums” who exchanged urban pressures for a laid-back lifestyle that continues today.
