Snowmaking happening up on the mountain. Colder weather coming soon!

Well, It’s officially here…Winter!

Today officially starts winter and we’re happy to say that we’re finally feeling it! This past weekend, it snowed but even better news was it was cold enough for the mountains to make snow. This week, during Christmas,  we’ll get a day or two of warmer weather but around the corner the cooler weather is coming to town!

As you know we are taking December 24 and 25th off to celebrate Christmas with our family and to give the Mad River Barn team a chance to be with their families as well. BUT THE DAY AFTER we’ll be well rested and ready for you!  The pub is already hopping and there are lots of fun things to do and see in the valley if you want to do more than ski!

Of course, we’d love it if you came and hung out with us in the pub — or watch a game on the big TV or play a game–air hockey, shuffle board, and foosball, in the game room.

Try one of our local beers on tap — or even better — the local chamber of commerce is listing some organized brew tours next week!  Visit some awesome breweries and let someone else do the driving!

Teach your kids how to play cribbage. When do you get a chance to sit down and play a game? Cribbage rules here.

Check out Andrew on the FAT BIKE. These conditions are perfect for this type of biking.

Trail map for Shelburne Farms. In the winter, when the Inn at Shelburne Farms is closed, the trails are still open. They are free this time of year and you can bring a dog (on leash) which you can’t in the summer months. The trails and views are amazing, worth the drive.

First snow at The Inn at Shelburne Farms along Lake Champlain in Shelburne, Vermont.

The Inn may be closed this time of year but the miles of trail systems are open! Enjoy!

Joanne’s friend Sarah Lavoie took this amazing picture of Church Street in Burlington the other day. An evening out on the town would be another great outing!
