This year, Mad River Mountain is turning 60! Where "every day is a snow day," they are using this big birthday to bring the fun back to Mad River Mountain! You'll be able to attend new events like listening to live music, First Tracks for pass holders (exclusive 1-hour early access to the slopes), free s'mores (every Sunday in January and February from 1-2pm) and the launch of the newly rebranded bubly Tubing Park!
Originally named Valley High, this farmland area was transformed into one of Ohio's first and largest ski hills by a visionary named Ralph Shoots. At the time, Mr. Shoots was inspired by the state of Michigan, who boosted 94 ski areas - while Ohio had zero! In 1975, Mr. Shoots retired and Valley High was sold to Charles P. Conrad and renamed Mad River Mountain. Today, it is the largest ski hill in Ohio and is now owned by Vail Resorts. With an Epic Pass, you can ski both locally and/or take a trip to one of Vail's many destination resorts!
