Despite a late start, Mad River has managed to jam pack their 2015 season with more than just snow. This weekend alone, visitors can see fireworks at Winterfest, practice jumps with the giant Airbag, enjoy a Super Bowl Watch Party (if your team wins, you win a return trip to MRM later in the season), see live music at The Loft and enjoy food and drink specials (and maybe even a BBQ)! But that’s not all, check out some of these are other exciting events happening throughout the rest of the season:
Avalanche Park: I’m no ski/snowboard expert, but Mad River’s tubing hill is great for experts and amateurs alike. Just sit down in the tube and fly on down. We took advantage of a snow day to test out the park and gave it an A+. My favorite part? Everyone in your group can link their tubes together and slide down as one giant mass. A guaranteed good time.
Bud Light Concert Series: Enjoy 3 hours of live music every Saturday night in the ski resort atmosphere of The Loft. The list of entertainers is ever-expanding, so keep an eye on their website for updates. No ski experience needed.
Big Air Series: Got some tricks up those puffy sleeves? Show them off at one of the Series’ events. Cash prizes are awarded to those who catch some serious air.
The Airbag: Test out new tricks with a guaranteed soft landing. The giant Airbag guarantees a landing as soft as a pillow every time. (Bag hours are tentatively scheduled and weather dependent).
#CollegeFridays: While not on everyone’s list of things to do, I definitely plan to take advantage of the amazing student discount while I can. It doesn’t get much better than a $20 lift ticket (additional $15 for equipment rental). Plus, the slopes stay open until 3 am!
Family Festival: Fun for the whole family – a photo booth, animals from the zoo, a stiltwalker, face painting, free s’mores, ice cream and more!
Go Pink: Hit the slopes for a cause. $1 from every lift ticket purchased on February 8th will be donated to the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research. There will also be activities, raffles and more. Don’t forget to wear pink!
St. Patrick’s Day weekend: What better way to end the season the Dublin way – with Irish Attitude! Enjoy corned beef and cabbage and the Shin Bangers & Mash Mogul competition which ends with contestants chugging a beer.
