Mad River Glen’s famed single chair

posted by Jason Kottke   Apr 16, 2015

From Nowness, a brief homage to the single chair lift at one of the oddest and most wonderful ski areas in the US, Mad River Glen in Vermont.

You don’t have a lot of opportunity in life these days to have 10 or 12 minutes alone. Some people think when they come here and they ride the chair, it’s a lonely ride. I never really thought of it that way.

I haven’t checked for sure, but Mad River might be the only ski area in the world with a chairlift that has its own beer.

Update: Here’s what skiing in the trees in 16” of powder at Mad River Glen looks like.
