Brewster Ridge Disc Golf at Smugglers’ is excited to open early this season in preparation for hosting the 2018 PDGA World Championships. The early May opening of two 18 Hole courses and the Disc Golf Pro Shop marks the first year both of these courses open at the start of the season. Both courses offer four tee options for various skill levels from beginner to professional, and offer family friendly fun, meandering amongst old stone walls through mixed hardwood forests and open pasture land. A perfect way to experience the idyllic Vermont scenery! The first in a series of tournaments to come to Brewster Ridge this season is Saturday, June 10th. The Brewster Ridge Open welcomes 144 competitors, utilizing both courses and welcoming disc golfers from across New England and beyond!

RFID technology comes to Smugglers'
Smugglers’ implements Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technology using Axess! Axess, an RFID company, makes chip embedded cards and chip reading gates. Their technology has been used for many years at other ski resorts, amusement parks, sporting complexes, and other venues. The implementation at Smuggs will be done in stages over the course of this year, beginning with the Ozone in the new FunZone 2.0 and the Courtside Pool. The gates will then be installed at Mountainside Water Playground and Notchville Park for the Summer, and finally, at the mountain lifts for the 2017/2018 ski and ride season. Everyone accessing our facilities will need to carry a card, the Notch Card, to access these facilities. Available for a small fee, the Notch Card is reusable all season which, once purchased, gives the option to reload online for various products as well as being usable at point of sale locations.
