Mad River Valley
Nestled in the Heart of Central Vermont between two spines of the Green Mountains, the Mad River Valley is about as idyllic a vacation destination as you're going to find. The Mad River winds north from Warren to Waitsfield, by Fayston, then through Moretown before flowing into the Winooski River. The valley is unique in many ways, not least of which is our 3 ski mountains and lack of traffic signals.
The valley is peaceful, but active in a progressive Vermont way: 3 ski mountains, riverside parks, farmer's markets, golfing, ice skating, kayaking, swimming, cross-country skiing, canoeing, tubing, a very active localvore movement and many more activities to participate in.
For those not looking for the active, no worries. Scenic Views, Local Artisan Shops, wonderful restaurants, and the unharried atmosphere of the Valley will soothe your soul and have you wanting to return year after year.
