Logo   Sugarbush & Mad River Valley, Vermont
The Mad River Valley along VT Route 100 just south of Interstate 89 boasts two good—but very different—ski resorts: Sugarbush and Mad River Glen.




The Mad River Valley has lots of opportunities for good skiing, and although Sugarbush and Mad River Glen are not so elaborate as the resorts at Mount Snow, Killington, or Stowe, well, perhaps that's part of the charm here—an absence of big-time crowds.

Both Warren and Waitsfield, the villages near these ski resorts, are on scenic VT Route 100 south of Interstate 89.
