Nowhere in New England is more beautiful than Sugarbush and Mad River Glen in Vermont when the majestic mountains and the Mad River Valley is blanketed in winter white crisp Vermont snow. Snowshoe, take a memorable horse drawn sleigh ride, cross country ski, ski Sugarbush or ski Mad River Glen. The freshness is always totally invigorating and exactly what makes New England and Vermont winter getaways so special. Let’s not forget soothing massages and hot chocolate too!
