Mad River Mountain is a great little place in Ohio to visit in the winter months. For a beginner skiing for the first time, skiing is a cinch thanks to Mad River Mountain's wonderful ski lessons. Spreading over a 144 acres, with 20 trails and a 300 foot vertical drop this location is a beautiful place to behold.

Briarwood Sporting Lodge has an impressive group of lodging cabins that can sleep up to 15 people in one space! With private hunting and fishing, these luxurious quarters will give you a place to get away from it all but are still close to Mad River Mountain. Check out our exclusive video down below to see the lodgings first hand and witness the magnificence for yourself.

Skiing at Mad River Mountain

As a first time skier, Mad River Mountain offers great beginner lessons and will walk you through the entire process of maneuvering the equipment and the terrain. They start beginners on a small hill that allows you to feel how to turn and shift your weight, eventually progressing to larger hills. It's a great experience, and the friendly staff will make you feel like a part of their mountain family.
