I was a single rider on the Madonna I lift today and I was paired up with a nice woman from the Burlington area. We were talking during the lift ride. It did not take long to realize that both us have been skiing and riding at Smuggs for a long time. She told me that she started skiing here when she was just two years old. She now is a mother and her children learned to ski and ride here at Smuggs also. I told her that I learned to ski here when I was a kid and how great it is to have my kids learning to ski here too. She told me that when it comes to Smuggs she is a “lifer”. I would have to say that I’m a “lifer” too!
