MRM snow

Snowmaking is under way for the 2016-17 winter season at Mad River Mountain, but a definitive opening date has yet to be established, according to MRM officials. This year marks the 55th season of operation. On Sept. 16, 2015, the facility’s iconic ski lodge was destroyed in a fire and MRM operated the 2015-16 ski season in temporary facilities. Construction of a new lodge is nearly complete and its opening will coincide with the first day of 2016 skiing. Visit skimadriver.com for updates. (PHOTO | GARY KAUFFMAN)
