If you are at The Seasons at Sugarbush Resort, take in the Mad River Valley. Mad River Valley is active Vermont; pastoral but never passive. Drive through the Mad River Valley towns of Waitsfield, Warren, Fayston, and Moretown on scenic Vermont Route 100, and you'll be struck by the classic New England landscape and architecture — a mountain ridgeline, a winding river, hillside farms, covered bridges, and steepled villages. Visit during any season and make your own discovery — from a fairway, a snow-capped summit, a hiking trail, a kayak on the Mad River, a lawn chair at an outdoor concert, or a porch of a country inn. Grand Summit Hotel Crown Club is a nearby resort you may enjoy if you like this area.
Summers are lovely, with average highs in the mid-seventies to mid-eighties and cool, refreshing nights. Life slows down a bit and people relax and savor the natural beauty of the area. The Mad River is at the center of the Valley offering canoeing, kayaking, fly fishing, and swimming. The Mad River Valley is home to two of New England's premier ski areas. Mad River Glen is a ski area like no other. It is a place where skiing remains an outdoor adventure in a pristine, natural setting. Sugarbush has something for everyone from the beginner area at Lincoln Peak to the challenge of Castlerock. The Valley is laced with cross-country, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling trails. It is a beautiful spot for a New England Getaway!
