Located in the Mad River Valley, Warren is the home of the Sugarbush Ski Resort. Open since the Fifties, Sugarbush was once so popular with the jet set, including the Kennedy family and Hollywood actors, that it was known as "Mascara Mountain." Sugarbush has since expanded, with 111 ski runs serviced by 16 lifts, and visited by thousands of skiers and snowboarders each year. The town of Warren serves as home base to visitors, with a collection of charming inns and romantic B&Bs to choose from.

Sugarbush Resort is located in the historic Mad River Valley of Vermont. With two mountains, sixteen lifts, one hundred and eleven trails, three terrain parks, and the 2,000-acre Slide Brook Basin, there is no question that Sugarbush is one of New England’s largest ski areas. Amenities include multiple base lodges, equipment rentals, ski/ride instruction, lodging, restaurants, and retail.
For starters, the weather and snow conditions were literally perfect during my most recent visit, so please take that into consideration. Every trail and every lift was open and the longest liftline was under 10 minutes (at Castlerock double, nonetheless).
Like so many ski trips, the weather and snow conditions can make it or break it, so this trip was perfect since the sun was out, temps were in the 20s and every trail was covered in snow, including natural snow trails.
The diversity of terrain here is great, with plenty of blue cruisers, some groomed blacks and plenty of bump runs too. There's not a lot of green runs but a good little learning area at South and a nice lower mountain lift at North too.
The lift network is great, with several high-speed quads that allow you to do a lot of runs. This is really one of the top 4 ski resorts in the east, hands down.

Popular Vermont ski area and New England's best ski buy.
It was crowded when we went on a Saturday after receiving 2 ft of snow, but it was worth it. The parking attendants are fabulous. They will will find spots where you think none exist. The lift lines were a little long, but it was worth the wait. Trails for all ability levels. Skiers dressed in costumes made it entertaining. It's an old school mountain with lots of charm.

The food stars at this quirky restaurant/movie theater/movie memorabilia museum.
Every dish I had here over a couple of weeks was delish. Served quickly and hot, breakfasts and lunches were fresh, filling, and fun. The staff was communicative and dedicated. I brought friends and relatives, too, and everybody was pleased with their choices.Pancakes were especially raved about.

After a great visit in mansfield mountain and stowe , we decided to visit this place, the scenic road(vermont100) was simply breathtaking with trees with amazing leaves colors, but when we got to warren falls, well, maybe its the right season, but we hardly saw very low falls and it was quite disappointing and other visitors felt the same. But again the road to this place was amazing so it was worth it.

This country store and deli is in the small village of Warren, which closely loops off scenic Route 100. They deli staff is efficient even when busy…offering a nice choice of sandwiches and salads…which are prepared with little wait. There is seating indoors, but we opted to share one of the picnic tables outside by the small waterfall and river. This was a very pleasant patio area! Our sandwiches were delicious and The Warren Store was a wonderful lunch stop while viewing fall foliage along one of the most scenic routes in all of New England.

30 miles of groomed cross country ski trails, 12 miles of snowshoe trails, great views of Sugarbush and the Mad River Valley, cross country ski shop, lessons, snowshoe tours, cafe open weekends
I have spent many, many hours on the extensive trail network at Ole's. They have a fantastic range of ski rental equipment, friendly staff and the trails are very well cared for. You can ski through some of Vermont's most outstanding rolling farmland, small quite flat loops for beginners as well as much longer loops for the more adventurous. Highly recommended!

The Skinner Barn is a beautifully restored historic dairy barn built in 1891 by the Daniel Skinner family. Of classic post and beam construction, it offers a special environment for educational classes, cultural events, parties, and receptions. Flanked by the majestic Northfield Ridge to its east and the mountains that host the Sugarbush and Mad River Glen ski areas to its west, The Skinner Barn offers a quintessential Vermont setting.The upper floor of The Skinner Barn has been restored with loving attention keeping the historical character of the structure intact. This open space, originally designed for hay storage, is now used as an assembly space for a wide range of functions from weddings & rehearsal dinners to theater camps, theater productions, dances and cabaret performances.
We attended a performance of "Pete 'N Keely." Both actors provided energetic and polished performances. This wasn't Broadway, but it was fun, entertaining, and of a higher scale than one might anticipate in an old barn (beautifully restored on gorgeous grounds) on a dirt road. The entire audience, including the four of us who attended together, had a good time. The sound and lighting were well-executed and reflective of the work of professionals.
My only negative comment is about the chairs. They provided a small amount of cushioning in sitting area and none for the back.
For only $25, it's a bargain.

Mad River Distillers ferments, distills and bottles whiskey, brandy and rum on our farm in Warren, Vermont. We use Vermont sourced grains whenever possible. Our tasting room is in Waitsfield at the intersection of Rte 100 and Rte 17. Visit us for spirits tastings and retail sales Friday - Sunday until 4 pm. We have a booth at the weekly Waitsfield farmer's market 9 am - 1 pm on Saturdays.
We had been in Waitsfield 2 weekends prior and did not stop here. After discovering MRD Maple Rum during lunch at CastleRock Pub at Sugarbush we decided we had to stop! Imagine our surprise when we discovered that the MRD spirits are made from all...MoreKelly we're glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you at the distillery for a tour on your next trip to the Mad River Valley!

The Joslyn Round Barn was Built by Clem Joslyn in 1910. Clem eventually sold the farm to his cousin Ralph, who spelled his last name with an “i” (go figure!). It was used as a dairy barn from 1910 until 1969, when Marge Joslin said to Ralph, "either the cows go or I go." Marge (and Ralph) stayed until 1986 when Jack and Doreen Simko bought The Round Barn Farm in March of that year. They spent eighteen months restoring the farmhouse into a seven guestroom Vermont inn, then turned their attention to the Round Barn.
My niece had her wedding here and it was just beautiful... Everything was perfect. Spent the weekend and would recommend highly. Breakfast was 3 courses and heavenly. My room was so comfortable and cozy, over looking the beautiful snow covered fields. The Inn is just beautiful and I will definitely be going back.
