Very Merry Larry & Merry Mamaroneck

Very Merry Larry    Zach

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. I started off my ski day on Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift, where Legendary Lift Man, Larry Burnor likes to keep it merry – that’s how he rolls. Here he’s pictured brushing the snow off the chairs. Darn, if he’s not thoughtful too.

Later on I met up with my friends Jeff, Matt, Zach, and Andrew from Mamaroneck, NY. I’ve known J, M, and Z since they first came to the Resort 10 years ago. Zach was just a toddler when I first met him, now he’s almost a teenager and totally into snowboarding. Yesterday, he took lessons from SSU’s George Zavis and he graduated from Sir Henry’s to Lower Morse Liftline. He was linkin’ turns and lovin’ life (see photo above). As Jeff and I were getting on the Village Lift, I spotted another long time Smuggs Guest, Rob and his daughter Emily. It turns out that Rob and Jeff met each other at the Resort – Rob was born in Mamaroneck. It’s a Smuggs World after all.

Have a MERRY!


Snowboard lesson on Sterling

dec. 26, 2013 ssu rob pirogSnow Sport University Instructor, Rob Pirog and his class enjoying the fresh snow. We received 2 to 3 inches of new snow overnight and another 5 inches during the day. Mother Nature just kept hitting the refresh button. The light fluffy snow on top of freshly groomed terrain was just wonderful. My son Hugh B has a pair of twin tip skis and the new snow just shoots off of them like a rooster tail. The light snow hangs in the air like a smoke screen.

Dec. 9, 2013 geoffMy cousin Mandy and her boyfriend Jack were here visiting from South Carolina for a long weekend. Mandy has never snowboarded and she took a private lesson with snowboard instructor Rob Pirog on Friday morning. Mandy said her lesson was fantastic and she really learned a great deal. Mandy practiced what Rob had taught her over the weekend and she improved so much!  Rob saw Mandy snowboarding today on Morse and gave her a shout out “Way to go Mandy!”
We went to the Green Mountain Deli for lunch the first day Mandy and Jack were here at Smuggs. They loved the food and said that they were coming back tomorrow! Well they kept saying that and had lunch there all 4 days. It was not just the food they liked; they really enjoyed the friendly service!
