Summer, Other Activities


Summer, Other Activities IN VERMONT'S MAD RIVER VALLEY

Not all of the Mad River Valley’s activities revolve around recreation. We urge you to enjoy other opportunities, like soaring over the Valley in silent glider! Take a chairlift ride at Sugarbush – and hike or ride back down. Ask a local person about secret swimming holes, or stop at a yard sale to find a treasure.  Bring the children to the library for story time – or visit the historical exhibit at the General Wait House in Waitsfield.  Visit the Icelandic Horse Farm and get to know some of the Valley’s most interesting denizens.
