Overview of Smugglers' Notch Resort, Vermont
Written by Greg and Heather Burke
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.
Great kids program. We vacationed the last week of March and still had great conditions. Very friendly family ski resort
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.
