The Mad River Valley has four distinct seasons. There is always plenty to do and it’s tough to get bored here with such a variety of activities.
Spring & Summer
In the summer, the days aren’t long enough to squeeze in all the possible pleasures. The Bridges is consistently ranked among the 50 Greatest U.S. Tennis Resorts by Tennis Magazine, and we offer a variety of weekend and weekday clinics, as well as programs for children and teens. Next door, Sugarbush offers golf, hiking and mountain biking. In the area, there is fly fishing, canoeing, kayaking, bicycling tours, horseback riding, glider rides, antique shops, music festivals, polo matches, theater, and so much more.
One of the most recent events to grace the valley this time of year is the Mad Marathon. This year, 1% for the Planet has joined up to co-host the first marathon dedicated to sustainability.

Come and experience the vivid color and beauty of Mother Nature’s grand finale. Everywhere you turn you see a vibrant display of colors and textures worthy of a canvas.
Whether you enjoy tennis, hiking, biking, golfing, canoeing, festivals or shopping, get outside and take advantage of the last warm days of the season. Check out the apple and pumpkin harvest from our local farmers. Experience country fairs that you have only read about in Yankee Magazine or Vermont Life. Enjoy the brisk fresh air that you breathe in as you sit atop nearby Lincoln Peak and look out over Lake Champlain and the mighty Adirondacks in nearby New York.
Every Labor Day weekend, The Bridges is honored to be the headquarters for the Green Mountain Stage Race, bringing a delightful and electric competitive energy to the air! Take part in the competition, or simply enjoy the inspiration.
Let The Bridges be your gateway to the fleeting beauty and serenity of autumn in New England!
