Waitsfield, VT A Top Underrated Ski Town in US

We reckon any of our regular guests here at The Pitcher Inn fell pretty much head over heels for the charms of the Mad River Valley, our gorgeous and action-packed backyard, soon after their first introduction. We’re certainly not all that surprised when the region gets a high-profile shout-out, but we do like passing along some of these nice nods here and there, and we’ve got one to share to kick off the New Year.

Earlier this month, Devorah Lev-Tov included the nearby hamlet of Waitsfield, Vermont—less than 10 miles from our perch here in Warren—among “The Best Underrated Ski Towns in the US” for Tasting Table. Well, naturally, we rate Waitsfield and its surrounds pretty highly, but we suppose it’s possible not everybody in the country knows the special appeal of the Mad River Valley…

World-Class Skiing at Mad River Glen & Sugarbush

Lev-Tov notes Waitsfield’s proximity to Mad River Glen and Sugarbush, which she calls “two of the East Coast’ best and most underrated ski mountains.” Check out our recent blogpost spotlighting this pair of awesome resorts, both of which are a mere snowball’s toss from the Pitcher Inn.

Epicurean Fancies in the Mad River Valley

Lev-Tov also talks up some of the area’s fine eateries—American Flatbread, Localfolk Smokehouse, and Peasant—as well as Mad River Distillers and Lawson’s Finest, a topnotch microbrewery that happens to be our neighbor here in Warren.

And what do you know? (*cough, cough*) The Pitcher Inn lands a mention in the Tasting Table write-up, which calls us “a Relais & Châteaux property with a stellar restaurant that celebrates the area’s stunning mountains and local bounty.”
