What's New This Season at Mad River Glen

Mad River Glen Gets New Single Chair
“Mad River Glen boasts one of the world’s finest chairlift, it transports its passengers uphill the easy way in relaxed comfort… skiers are assured fast and comfortable, smooth and silent uphill transport in chairs of advanced design. This is indeed an installation of which even Vermont with it’s many uphill facilities may be proud.”

That’s what the New York Herald Tribune said about Mad River Glen’s new Single Chair back in 1949. Some things never change! The 2008 season marks a new era as Mad River Glen unveils its “spanking new” Single Chair. This past summer “ Old Faithful” received a $1.54 million historic rehabilitation. The Single Chair has long been the embodiment of the mountain’s rugged, practical, and unique personality. For 58 years, the Single Chair brought generations of skiers to the top of General Stark Mountain and now future generations of skiers will get the same opportunity to enjoy that “smooth and silent” ride.
