Testing out the slopes at Mad River Mountain


BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - Skiers and snowboarders can rejoice. Mad River Mountain kicked off opening season this weekend.

We tested out the fresh powder at the ski resort this morning.

Crews and snow cannons are busy this time of year.

Mad River Mountain is making snow through Thursday and will start its normal operating hours Friday.

“Now we’re going to be focusing mid-week on snow making,” says Mad River Mountain Marketing Manager, Michael Mihnovets. “So we’ll be ready to go on Friday, December 15th and we’ll be starting our normal operating hours throughout the winter and the holiday period and then into March.”


Ohio’s largest winter resort offers 20 trails and more than 140 acres of skiing.

Mad River Mountain is also home to Avalanche Tubing Park.
