Smugglers' Snow Sport University Programs for Women

Ladies, it's your turn!




Our women's programs are led by expert female coaches focused on offering fun and confidence boosting sessions with plenty of skiing and riding tips, tricks and terrain tactics that address the differences of how women move on snow. Whether you want to start building basic skills or fine tune advanced techniques, our small groups are designed to be playful, supportive and take full advantage of the terrain offered by Smugglers' three mountains.

Beginning skier/riders (Levels 1-4) meet at the Village Gazebo and spend their day exploring the variety of terrain on Morse Mountain while Intermediate and Advanced skiers/riders (Levels 5-9) meet on the Green Peppers Deck at the Madonna/Sterling Base Lodge. At day's end, each program heads down hill to enjoy a complimentary après lesson cocktail. Relax and relive your learning experience with your clinic friends while lingering over a toddy!

"Smugglers' Notch prides itself on its children's programming, and many of the women who take (Julie) Silverman's clinics drop off their kids and then enjoy the mountain with a group of women who have a variety of skill levels in different disciplines." — Kyle Opuszynski - Ski Vermont Magazine

"I signed up for the women's weekly clinic and I significantly improved my skiing skills with all the tips and coaching. The women's weekly clinic is an awesome program which allow women to share their experiences and learn about skiing in confidence." -Iris, Winter 2014-15

"I participated this past Wednesday in the Women's Clinic with Judy as an instructor. Needless to say I think it is the best I have felt on skis ever! I am an athletic person, but did not grow up skiing, as my husband did. I am always feeling as if I hold him back when skiing and he has to wait for me... After working with Judy, my confidence grew tenfold. I let go of a tremendous amount of tension and fear, and felt like I bumped up a level or two, just in one day! Judy gave me some exercises I could do on flat terrain, and then build up to steeper terrain as I feel comfortable. Doing these exercises really improved my balance and understanding of coordinating my mind telling my body what to do. It was fantastic! The clinic is a great idea! I look forward to doing it next time we come up!" - Joy, Winter 2014-15
