"Excellent! This is our second year at Smuggs and we continue to thoroughly enjoy our experience. We will be back again soon."

"Wonderful, as always. Mother nature didn’t help much with the snow, but the Smuggs snowmaking crew did a great job of maximizing what snow there was and making enough for great coverage on the open trails. Thanks for keeping the fireworks and the well marked snowshoe trails. We all like the slower double chairs, it gives us time to have some great conversations! Great curbside check in. You guys thought of everything! Thanks again for all the extra precautions you took to make sure we had a great stay !!"

Crystal from Clarks Summit, PA

"Fantastic as usual! Loved that there were hand sanitizers at almost every entrance. Staff and other visitors all abided by the face mask requirements. Felt as though the room was cleaned, although it has been clean every year we have come for the past couple. Overall we had a sense of cleanliness, and calmness being there."

This vacation was the highlight of our year - it was exactly what we needed and we feel so very fortunate and grateful to have been able to take a fun and safe vacation.

"This must be our 5th time staying at Smuggs. This was the best experience so far! Our unit was conveniently located and it was super clean!!! I am healthcare worker and I wanted a piece of mind. This our place to spend family quality time and we got to without any worry of this pandemic. The fun zone was exciting for my 5 year old and my nephews 12 and 13 years old. The best thing about our trip was the experience of the outside pool. We always wanted to experience this and we did! Honestly we are devoted to coming up to Smuggs because of the cleanliness and organized atmosphere and service."

Aimee from Pelham, NH

"We had a wonderful time! This was our first visit to Smuggs, we all had a blast. My son did so well with the Discovery Dynamos program, I'll definitely be enrolling him again next year when we come. There was just so much for everyone to do! Even my cousin, who is from South America and had never even seen snow before, was able to take lessons with a Spanish speaking instructor."

Russ from Frenchtown, NJ

"This vacation exceeded our expectations. We were so impressed with how friendly and accommodating the staff was and how many activities there were day and night.

Having been in the lodging industry for many years you can always get a bead on the company's philosophy from the staff. Clearly the focus is on customer service.

The staff were pleasant and helpful and the other vacationers were fr4iendly. We were impressed and discussed how the resort might be a good place to be any time of year.

We have traveled to Smugglers' Notch many times and in all seasons. We leave wishing we could stay longer and trying to figure out when our next trip back will be."

The biggest impression left on me was the fact that all of the instructors remembered me and my kids even after our instruction and would give us all words of encouragement. I would definitely return."

Christian from Bronx, NY

Tina from Massapequa, NY
Stayed 02/14/2020-02/17/2020

"Our first visit and we had a great time. My 12 year old son and I took an individual [private] lesson ... and it was great. We learned so much and were both able to ski for 3 day, a perfect way to learn. The condo we rented was clean and convenient to all. This was the first time we ever stayed a ski resort, it was so nice to not have to drive and to be able to wake up and walk over to the lifts. We used the pool/hot tub a lot and my husband and I had a nice dinner at Hearth & Candle while the kids were at the Fun Zone. It was really a perfect trip!"

Lydia from Lincoln Park, NJ
Stayed 02/12/2020-02/15/2020

"The ski instructors at Smuggs are absolutely phenomenal. The amount of activities they have for children was unexpected and a very pleasant surprise. My kids enjoyed not only skiing, but the pool, fun zone and Billy Bob Bear and Mogul Mouse. We didn't get a chance to go ice skating over our 3 days but it's another great option. This was our first time and hopefully not our last."

Barbara from Thornhill, Ontario

Paul from Plymouth, MA
Stayed 01/24/2020-01/27/2020

"We are a multi-generational family, grandparents, adult children and grandchild. There is something for everyone. The skiing is different from the wide, groomed boulevards we normally ski, a welcome challenge. The two year old enjoyed the FunZone, the pool and Treasures. We were pleasantly surprised to receive updates throughout the day, including photos of her skiing. We parked the car and stayed within the resort, visiting the General Store, Three Mountain Outfitters and a couple of restaurants. All wonderful."

Michelle from Prospect, CT

Joseph from Rutland, VT

This was the first time our family has been together in quite a long time and was so great to spend this with our kids! We had dinner at Morse Grill; food was fantastic!

"Amazing! This was our 6th year coming to Smuggs and 4th consecutive. My three kids (13,11 and 9) love coming to Smuggs and two youngest learned to ski here. This trip was one of the best- great conditions and mild temperatures. We can't wait to come back!"

Allen from Alexandria, VA
Stayed 01/23/2020-01/26/2020

"It was amazing. The slopes were great and every staff member was unbelievably friendly. The shuttle service is by far the best shuttle service I have ever seen in operation and I used to be an event manager that used them daily. The rental service onsite was great even though it seemed to be the busiest weekend of the year. The food at the restaurants on site were great and no place was ever too crowded. The ski lessons ere very organized and all the instructors were easy to work with. The only thing I can hark about is the lifts could use a bit of updating but they were reliable all weekend. I hope to come back and stay longer."

Meredith from Washington, DC

"very family friendly, we had a great time! We came with 6 families, it was great to be able to roam the property, feel like the kids could wander safely and be able to be together yet have our own space. The adults met up for the magic show which was amazing. Smugglers' was such a family friendly resort for all ages, we're already talking about booking next year! It was a great vacation, perfect property to visit with multiple families and for kids of all ages. We're excited to come back next year and maybe try out the summer!"

Mia from Cambridge, MA

"It was a great first family ski trip. With an almost 2yo & a 4yo, we have only been skiing twice in the past 5 years, and it was great to be able to drop the kids of and go ski on our own. Treasures is such a beautiful facility. My 23-month-old has never been in daycare or preschool, and she clearly had a blast!"

Chris from Mechanicsburg, PA

"Excellent. Used to go to Stowe for years but now we've been at Smuggs for the last three. Here for a few reasons 1. Snow 2. Family oriented 3. value. Wonderful planned community slopeside condo has it all on the mountain. Service is with Nice people. That MATTERS! Don't change the Place!!!!! Please don't sell to Vail..... we could go many other places but we come to Smuggs because it's different. It's the old time family ski vacation that's about the snow/terrain, great friendly service, and fun kid activities THAT DOESN'T COST A FORTUNE!!!"

Jason from Brookline, MA
Stayed from 01/17/2020-01/20/2020

"Overall impression was good. As skiing first-timers, the package for booking was very easy to get an inclusive package with lessons, children's camp, passes, and condo. Access from the condo to the camp and village center was very easy. We also really enjoyed the Nordic center and cross-country skiing, and hottub... We had a really nice weekend, and really enjoyed the school/camp/lessons. Our son really enjoyed it, and that was the main goal of the trip."

"This was our first visit to Smugglers' Notch and we had a wonderful time. The accommodations were more than comfortable and the staff was very friendly. My kids enjoyed the lessons and felt very comfortable on the slopes each day. We enjoyed the extra activities like snow shoeing and cross country skiing for those of us who rather stay on level ground. Overall, it was a great ski vacation for our family at a reasonable price."

Bradley from Headland, AL
Stayed 01/01/2020-01/05/2020

"Great vacation! Excellent facilities, friendly & helpful staff, good skiing. Definitely a do-over in the future for my family. Closeness of the campus encouraged "togetherness." We could all pursue different interests & yet be near each other. The "family" aspect was definitely fulfilled at Smuggs. My entire family was glad we chose Smuggs as our ski vacation this year. I will not hesitate to recommend Smuggs to my ski friends."

Hannah from San Antonio, TX
Stayed 01/01/2020-01/05/2020

"It’s truly the best vacation we have ever had! We have a 9 year old son with cerebral palsy, and vacations are generally not vacations, just trips. It’s always so hard to find things that he can do and it’s exhausting trying to make trips memorable for him and still try to make things fun for our 6 year old daughter. We usually come home from trips, warn out and a bit disappointed. Well that was not the case this time! Everything was truly perfect! Our son had a ball skiing with his amazing instructor June and our daughter adored her time in camp with her instructor Gabby. My husband and I learned so much from our time in our lessons and we too had incredible instructors, Tom, Carl, and Seth. We also made friends with another couple in our class and have agreed to stay in touch :) Our accommodations were perfect for us, clean, plenty of room, cozy, and great proximity to the Village area. I truly can’t say enough about how lovely everything was! We are all dying to go back as soon as possible! It was the trip of a lifetime, it brings tears to my eyes just thinking about how wonderful it was! It was a great time to really connect as a family! 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!"

Meghan from Baltimore, MD

"The whole family loved Smugglers' Notch! Two days later I'm still refreshing the "no bull" snow report on my phone and wondering if we can get back this ski season. I can't say enough about how Smuggs lived up to the hype of being a family-oriented resort. From the winter carnival, and dance party to fireworks and glow tubing - we made amazing family memories during our stay. We loved our vacation! The skiing, family activities, and convenience of our condo location were going to make for a great vacation but the Smuggs staff, and how we were made to feel so welcome during the visit, is what will stick out in our minds and make us want to return year after year."

Our family came together and spent time together like we never have before. Smuggs employees went out of their way to reschedule things for us when needed and make sure we had what we needed. My littlest one loved playing at Treasures while my big kids went to ski school. At night we had some great family time at the scheduled activities as well as quality time in our warm cozy condo!"

"We love Smugglers' Notch. Perfect vacation for our family. Our kids are 8, 7, and 7 now. We got them up on skis last year at Smuggs, and this year they worked on becoming better skiers. We also like the way Smuggs is priced. Most other ski resorts gouge their customers on lift ticket and ski lesson prices, and that price gouging is getting worse each year at other resorts. The fact that lift tickets and 2-hour lessons are included in package price at Smuggs makes it great value. The adaptive program is awesome for our son and priced at a reasonable level. And my kids love the FunZone."

It is a lovely setting, the staff was friendly and helpful, and we would certainly enjoy coming back to enjoy what you offer in another season as well."

"The weather was perfect sunny and no clouds all three days. The hills were in great shape with the blues well groomed and for the end of March a lot of snow and really February conditions with powder in the upper sections. The accommodations were very clean and had everything necessary and easy to get to all access points."

"My overall impression of this vacation was great! I loved the mountain and Smuggs really makes it easy for families to have fun. From the day care center, to all day camps, to the Funzone 2.0, there are countless ways to have a good time."

"We had a great time! The accommodations were amazing and everyone was very nice! We had such a great time at Smugglers' and really enjoyed the spring skiing, even with everyone in our group being beginners at skiing we were able to enjoy several runs, all with different terrain and spectacular views. Having a condo was really great for us as it allowed us to return after skiing and just relax on our own."

"Amazing! My son and I had the most wonderful time. Our only regret is we didn't book a longer trip. Coming from Florida, this was our (my 8yr old son and I) first time staying at a ski resort. Smuggs completely exceeded our expectations! We have already started planning for next year's vacation at Smuggs. Thank you so much to all the instructors and staff for making our winter vacation everything we hoped for!"

"Awesome, the BEST. Clean, very Friendly, staff was great, trails were groomed better than any place I've been to, and nice and wide. The best part was it's so big your not on top of each other whether skiing or snowboarding, great for lessons and beginners."

"I thought Smugglers' Notch was a wonderful place to spend a vacation. We stayed during the winter and lucked out with some great spring skiing - Record snow the day before we left - 2 feet! Amazing. The town is rustic and charming, I was thinking you should have a Hallmark Movie filmed there and call it Snuggler's Notch! We had a group of various levels of skiers and snowboarders, all were happy with the terrain and run selections. I thank you for the wonderful hospitality, amenities, and location!"

"This was our 2nd trip ever to Smuggs and we absolutely loved it. The ease of getting around via shuttle and the proximity to the lift from our room was amazing. I compare the quality service of everyone at Smuggs to Disney, except a more relaxed atmosphere. We are so impressed that we are even considering buying a timeshare at the resort. I can't say enough about how awesome it is!!!"

"Overall we had a fantastic visit. Two families enjoyed the large condo, took advantage of the slopeside skiing to hop on/off the trails, and really enjoyed amenities on the property. We enjoyed each other, kids enjoyed lessons, and we could all ski together from the summit despite our various ability levels. We were even able to secure a sitter for an adult dinner out and were really really happy with her and her expertise."
