Providing the opportunity for Winter recreation for children and adults of all abilities

Snow Sport University logo

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.

Our adaptive program provides therapeutic recreation for children and adults of all abilities.

Experiences are tailored to meet the needs and goals of each individual. Some campers/students may require two counselors/instructors, while others may be appropriately paired with one counselor.

We also offer an inclusion program with our ski and snowboard programs for children. This gives a child with special needs the opportunity to socialize with his/her peers while still maintaining the support he/she needs through the adaptive program.

There is no age limit for the program. Half and full day lessons are available. Our highly trained instructors will evaluate each individual's needs and goals and determine their equipment requirements. Smugglers' adaptive program maintains an inventory of adaptive equipment including mono-skis, bi-skis and a slider. Snowboarding is also available.

What our guests are saying...

"My kids loved every minute of skiing and ski camp! The adaptive program is simply the best! I can't tell you what it meant to me to know our son was having just as much fun as the rest of us and doing the same thing as the rest of us!" — Hannah from San Antonio, TX

"By far the best program we have found! Above and beyond our expectations - the staff was amazing and the quality of the program made our vacation!"
