If we did the same thing every day it wouldn’t be an adventure. After a summer of surfing, river tubing, mountain biking and wakeboarding, Mud City Adventures is excited that the hills are white again. Send the kids or join us yourself for a day of winter awesomeness. We can explore lift access stashes or, better yet, hunt it out in the backcountry. We love to bust out the ski bikes and snow tubes, build fires and igloos, or find a view by snowshoe. Sign up for a Jay Peak Glades and Waves road trip or create a custom adventure with us. At Mud City Adventures FUN rules.
