EXPERIENCE OUR MOUNTAINS -- SPRING SKIING & RIDING

Mother Nature offers the outdoor enthusiast some of the best days on the slopes during Springtime in Vermont! Our ski and ride season usually runs through the second weekend in April. The days filled with warm temperatures and blue skies on terrain deeply blanketed by snow during the Winter is what every skier and rider has waited for.

The Spring terrain at Smuggs is typically restricted to higher elevation trails on Sterling and Madonna Mountains. With the annual average snowfall of over 300" every season and top to bottom snowmaking on both Madonna and Sterling we've got you covered with the best on snow experience in the East!

Trails on Madonna and Sterling are challenging and we recommend that your ability is at an intermediate or higher level. The upper mountain terrain can vary depending on the nighttime temperatures and accessibility to our professional grooming staff. The snow quality goes through periods of warming and freezing and generally gives the effect of what we call "corn snow." This type of snow offers excellent carving ability and creates a faster sliding surface that is welcomed by seasoned skiers and riders.
