Let The Fun Begin: Friday, December 10, 12pm

As you read this, the Mad River Mountain staff is hard at work preparing the Resort for the opening day to a fun filled season. Cold temperatures have allowed Team Blizzard to make snow on all 144 acres and will continue to pile up the snow, all week, as temperatures permit. Come out and enjoy fabulous opening weekend conditions, featuring extensive snow coverage, a top to bottom terrain park, and the season kickoff party with our friends at Burton and ASB Co. Natural snow has been falling all day and is predicted to continue through opening day, adding a natural snow surface to the slopes. Midnight Madness will begin December 17th.
