Public Service Announcement

Thursday, June 30, 2011

To truly understand and appreciate the 4th of July festivities in the Mad River Valley, you have to be here. However, if this is your first time or are even a returning reveler, we must offer a serious alert for all.

Warning: Mellow mid-summer breezes have strong calming effects, especially when combined with sunshine, birdsong, fireflies, babbling brooks, friends or celebrations. Use with caution and only under medical supervision.

Side effects may include, but are not limited to: smiles, a feeling of oneness or euphoria, relaxation, refreshment and occasional silliness. If these symptoms last more than four hours, repeat until tired.

Operating heavy machinery while under the influence is not recommended, except for golf carts, tennis sneakers, hiking boots, swim suits and bikes, which are encouraged.

Motorcycles with sidecars are apparently okay also, but only with dog passengers.

In medical studies, visiting the Mad River Valley has been proven to enhance the effects of mid-summer breezes. Please be aware when traveling in the area.


Sugarbush can be held liable for excessive happy thoughts, as a work distraction and for being too much fun.

If you exercise your right to sue for extra-legal embetterment, please save all pictures, video, scorecards, lift tickets and other memorablia as evidence.
These rights are fully transferrable to friends and family, complete strangers and anyone who might benefit from happy thoughts.

Please share responsibly and often. Thank you Mountain Moxie!

Although the weekend is still a day away, the Valley already feels busier, as friends from near and far begin to gather for this important jubilee. Remember that freedom isn't free and that we all owe much to our predecessors and protectors. May the fourth be with you.

We hope to see you soon!
