Please read the following programming descriptions carefully.
Changes have been made to program age eligibility, timing, and meeting locations.
Please be aware that as further information is made available by the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA), Vermont Ski Areas Association (VSAA), other state and federal agencies, and Smugglers' Notch, programming details may need to be further amended.

All participants and instructors will be required to wear masks when closer than 6 feet. Guests will be able to ride the lifts with their travel group only. When in a lesson if no one from their travel group is present they will ride the chairlift by themselves. Adults can ride the lift with their children while their child is in a lesson, if needed. All participants in Snow Sport University programs will be required to adhere to the
Vermont State Travel Guidelines, and will be asked COVID-19 health questions at line up. Participants are also required to fill out a release form online. A link to the release form will be available in late November.

Daily program registration is currently on hold.
We will post updated registration information when it is available.

Please note: These Snow Sport University options for you and your family may continue to be updated. For up-to-date information on the following Snow Sport University options, due to Covid-19 restrictions, please check back.

Available December 11, 2020 - April 4, 2021

Smugglers' big mountain playground offers lots of opportunities to rip it up on anything from groomed intermediate trails to triple black diamond steeps, glades, and terrain parks for all ability levels. Our Notch Squad groups don’t stand around talking about skiing and riding; your time is spent doing it, with coaching from our staff that will step your game up to the next level. Never skied or snowboarded before? No problem. Our programs will get you on the right track and have you feeling comfortable skiing or riding our green terrain in a matter of days - maybe intermediate blues too! You may also want to consider the benefit of receiving a
private lesson.
