Smugglers' Notch Resort, Vermont
Smugglers Notch in Vermont gets an avalanche of awards as the best ski resort for families. If you have young children, they have programs for each and every youngster whether they want to snowboard at age three or ski with a pack of teens. Smuggs has the most innovative and energized ski and snowboard programs, plus tons of healthy après ski entertainment for the kids.
Parents will find a plethora of on mountain lodging, all condominiums ranging from 1970’s vintage to brand new slope-side suites. The skiing at Smugglers is all service by fixed grip double chairs, call it romantic and rustic, and the terrain on Madonna – the tallest of the three interconnected peaks is rugged, with unreal views of the Vermont’s mountains and neighboring Stowe.
A Smugglers ski vacation is best for families with young kids; request a newer model condominium as close to the slopes as possible.

Skiing the trees and steeps has never been so fun! The two chair lifts keep the mountain uncrowded and service is top "Notch" hehe. They have a whole mountain for beginners and if you're an expert try the triple black diamond, "The Black Hole"
it was a high school field trip and it was so great that i will definitely return
Old and outdated.
Great kids program. We vacationed the last week of March and still had great conditions. Very friendly family ski resort
Smugg's is the best w/ kids in the business. The skiing is surprisingly good too!
We have 4 skiers - 3 learning & 1 non-skier; so keeping the whole family entertained and in appropriate lessons was key. Smuggs covered all the bases for us.
