Smugglers' Notch Outdoor Daytime Activities for Teens

Alpine Skiing - Snowboarding - Snowshoeing -

Smugglers' Notch offers a variety of outdoor adventures for teens all day long.

Alpine Skiing, Snowboarding or Telemark Skiing
Experience our 3 big mountains with over 310 acres of ski and snowboard
trails. We have something for everyone from well-groomed gentle cruisers to the only triple black diamond in the East, The Black Hole - for experts only! We also have glades and terrain parks.

Let us help you maximize the exhilaration and satisfaction of your on-mountain experience. Check out the Notch Squad ages 11-15 or the Mountain Explorers ages 16-20 for more adventure. You can select from 2 hour, 4 hour, or customized private lessons. If you haven't tried skiing or snowboarding before, we'll get you moving and turning on the hill faster than you can imagine in our First-Timer Program. Teens (ages 13-17) on our Club Smugglers' FamilyFest or Summit Package have 2 hour group lessons included, so you can start your vacation by hooking up with other skiers and riders.
Airboard Slalom

Monday, 8:00 pm

An Airboard is an inflated sled similar in size to a water raft and A-shaped. You can carve perfect turns as you cruise down the mountain. Airboards are fun and fast and one of the greatest Winter sporting inventions.
Night School for Boarding & Night School for Jibbing

Tuesday, Wednesday & Saturday, 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Are you ready for your first snowboard experience? Are you already a skier or rider and want to try your first freestyle moves? Then try one of our Night School programs. Night School for Boarding is a great way for families and everyone else to go snowboarding for the first time. Night School for Jibbing is our program designed to utilize small, entry-level terrain park features to introduce level 4-6 skiers & riders to the world of freestyle. With 1 1/2-hour group sessions and another one-hour of practice time (with coaches on the hill to help you out), new riders and new jibbers can experience the excitement of snowboarding or freestyle skiing.

Ages 6 - adult. $49 per person, per session, includes Burton Learn to Ride equipment rental. Must sign up prior to 3:30 pm at the Guest Service Desk or the Ski & Ride Desk. Space available basis. Get outfitted for your equipment between 2:30 pm and 3:30 pm at 3 Mountain Equipment. Meet at Sir Henry's Learning & Fun Park after you've been fitted for your equipment.
