WAITSFIELD, Vermont ??” With frigid temps expected throughout the weekend, Mad River Glen is offering its guests the opportunity to test out that Gortex and Polypro gear that so lightened their wallets. Mad River Glen is dropping its lift ticket prices over the weekend to $25 for an adult ticket and $20 for a junion or senior ticket. Who else but MRG would offer you 50% off just ’cause of a little cold?

According to the ski area’s Web site, “there’s packed powder covering most of the mountain with the occasional bare or icy patch. The ungroomed terrain is looking pretty good and though there is some definite windslab in spots it’s remarkably soft and edgeable. The groomers themselves, given all the very dry snow of late, are skiing extremely fast and smooth and even a dull edge cuts through ’em like butter! We plan to be skiing on all 45 trails with around 20 of them freshly groomed.”
