Smuggs received 17" of new snow in the past two days and almost three feet of snow in the past week. Between Governor Scott's "Snow Day" proclamation and nearly every VT school out of session, our mountain was hopping Monday — we think you'll agree this February storm system will go down on record as one of the best in recent years.

The family that skies together, stays together. Hugh Johnson is off this week, so his family stepped in to deliver us this week's report.

When you don't have something nice to say, it's better to not say anything at all. That was our attitude Wednesday as freezing rain and 35-50 mph gusts rocked all three Mountains at Smugglers'. Despite the havoc, our upper mountain terrain held up noticeably well. Warm temperatures over the past few days has softened our base, providing corn run after corn run. With new snow and lower seasonable temperatures on the way, think of this as our normal annual January thaw... in February. Either way, it should set us up well for the remainder of the season.

Smugglers' - No Bull [Video] Snow Report - Wednesday, January 20, 2016
Best day of the season... so far? It would be hard to fault your logic. After receiving 8-12 inches of new snow early this week, Smuggs packed on an additional 6"-8" overnight. With the wind threatening our more wide open terrain, Hugh takes to the woods off F.I.S. and Doc Dempsey's. The goods: miraculous!
