Mad River Valley Vermont

Come for the mountains. Stay for the valley.

Almost There 

Welcome to Vermont's Mad River Valley

Where many come for the mountains but stay for the authentic experience the Valley offers all year long. Tucked between two legendary mountain resorts, Sugarbush and Mad River Glen, it's no surprise our town of Waitsfield was voted best ski town in the East by Outside Magazine.  The same publication named Waitsfield as one of 2013's Best Towns. The Valley is breathtaking and easy-going all at once, yet rich with diversions for every taste. Best of all, we've got an uncanny ability to make you feel welcome, no matter where you turn. The Mad River Valley – our vibe is hard to define, and impossible to forget.


Join the Mad River Valley Chamber's executive director for a guided trip to China (Bejiing, Shanghai, Suzhou and Hangzhou) in March of 2015. This once-in-a-lifetime trip includes a 9-day getaway, with all flights, transportation in China, 4-5 Star Hotels, food, English-speaking guides and attractions like the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Jade, Silk, and Pearl factories - all for only $2,499 per person! You must reserve your space by September 1, 2014. Price increases to $2,699 after that date.

An informational meeting will be held 8/5/14.

Contact the Chamber of Commerce for additional information.

"Well known as a winter skiing destination — it is home to the sprawling Sugarbush resort and 'ski it if you can' Mad River Glen — the valley reveals itself in warmer weather, when history, culture and a hyperlocal food scene come to the fore."
- Kathryn Matthews, New York Times
