A good choice of restaurants from pizza, steakhouse, Mexican, Italian and gourmet dining.. The Den is always busy as a pub and eating house. Try John Egan's Big World Pub and Grill for great American food at a good price. 1824 House Inn is the place for a gourmet feast by a raging fire. You won't find all night discos, but just warm hospitality at night and lovely places to listen and tell the days ski stories.


Mad River Glen is well described as the place is a wee bit bizarre. About 2,00 people own the resort as a type of timeshare. The lifts are Olde Worlde as far as resorts go and the terrain is for the skilled skier. Boarding is too dangerous and banned. The beginner will however find slopes lower down. There are more than a couple of restaurants, but nightlife is quiet. Easy to meet the many quirky characters populating the resort. Snow is good most of the season and most levels of skier will eventually find their area. Snow shoeing and Telemark are both available. There is a ski school and kids are well catered for.
