"We had a great time. We look forward to our vacation at Smuggs every year. The staff is wonderful and the resort is always clean. We loved the condo we stayed in, it had a great view of the woods and we even had a great spot to watch the fireworks!"

"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

"Great vacation! Excellent facilities, friendly & helpful staff, good skiing. Definitely a do-over in the future for my family. 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."

"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!"

"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."

"I have to accept I was very skeptical about this vacation but was surprised And Loved our experience. My LO would have never thought of snowboarding if it weren't for Smugglers' Notch. Me and my husband took classes for skiing and are proud Level II now. We are a happy snow loving family now, all because of Smugglers'."

"We had an incredible time! It’s hard to put into words. We loved our location near everything we needed and everyone was very helpful. 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!"

Eric from Riverside, CT

"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."

James from Panama City, FL

"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.

"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."

Michele from North Palm Beach, FL

"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!"

"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."

Melvin from Wilmington, DE

"I have been to Smuggs for several winter vacations now and the weather conditions have varied widely, but the pleasure of staying there has always been a joy. The rooms are always clean and neat when we arrive and because we can walk to the lift, restaurant, store or shuttle to Madonna, we can park the car and forget it. Also we don't have to waste any time getting to these activities. The staff throughout Smuggs are always friendly, helpful and courteous from check-in to checkout. The food at the grill is both reasonably priced and very good, as is the service. As far as trail conditions, your teams have always made the best with whatever snow you have had to work with and we have always come away satisfied with our skiing experience. In short, in the things you can control, you all do an excellent job. The weather is always variable as it was this past week, but we had both a relaxing week, we didn't set the alarm Monday, Tuesday or Wed. because of the extreme morning cold, but still managed to get in a ton of skiing, which is always our primary goal. Smuggs is a great value for your vacation dollar and we only wish we could return every year! Thanks for a great time once again!"

Adam from Washington, NJ

"We love Smuggs! This is our fourth year returning for skiing and are very happy with our experience. The kids camps and lessons are a huge draw for us as it gets the kids skills they need and frees up some time for adult skiing. Loved the pool, the daily hot chocolate, the winter carnival and the Thursday night parade."

The staff really takes time with you and helps you plan you activities each step of the way. The shuttle service was excellent. The drivers are very quick and are also very pleasant. We never had to wait for a shuttle, it seems as soon as we called a shuttle was there. Renting ski equipment for our children was the best we ever experienced! We were greeted instantly at the door and were all helped very quickly! Staff quickly helped our children and fitted them with boots and skis and before we knew it everyone was good to go!! We ate at several restaurants and again the staff were kind and friendly. We didn't want to leave!!!! We created wonderful family memories and had a truly wonderful winter vacation! We are already planning for next year!!!!

Whenever I visit another resort, I have a good time but I also realize how much I appreciate all that Smuggs has to offer: the kids' programs, the resort village, and the variety of challenging terrain. It truly feels like a hidden gem."

"Overall, we had a fantastic vacation. It was the first time we had been to Vermont and the first time on skis for our 4 year old. He had a lot of fun. He loved the characters of Mogul Mouse, Billy bob Bear and Ron the Friendly Pirate. We loved the close proximity to everything our Condo provided, including the torch light and fireworks on Thursday night. All though we picked arguably the coldest week of what will probably prove to be the entire year, we did enjoy the fantastic snow conditions and the lack of lift lines. We liked all the great activities for kids and adults you can do while on the mountain. We did go to the FunZone, the Ice Skating Rink, Winter Carnival, Tuesday Night Kids night out, Adventure Dinner on top of Mt Sterling among other things. That said we will definitely be returning. Great job!"

I love the evening entertainment, the friendliness and willingness of every staff member. Thank you for everything!!! By far our favorite resort, mountain and staff. We became lifetime smugglers after our first trip, we just got back to Long Island today and are currently planning our next 2 trips to Smuggs this season. Oh and the Smuggs app: AWESOME!!! So great to be able to look back at your runs and stats and see them on the trail map, top notch seriously, and it somehow doesn't kill your battery using GPS tracking. Truly impress by it."

We had a great day at the fun zone ... and loved the dance party with Goodtime Charlie and our favorite friendly pirate. Loved watching the fireworks and getting that special hug from my 31 year old who remembered watching it all those years before. Shared dinners all together and played lots of games in the evening after skiing all day. What could be better than a week in Smugglers' with all our family sharing quality time together. Our fave ski resort to meet up and spend time with family. More fun than Christmas."

We did the Thursday night Cat Ride that included having a "box seat" for the torch parade and the fireworks. The ride was one of the highlights of our trip.

Every time we go to Smuggs my youngest son, said he just feels completely relaxed as soon as we pull in. And he always says he loves it there repeatedly. Pretty surprising for a teenage boy!

"It was an excellent experience. I loved the children's class program! They were very organized but most importantly, all of the instructors were awesome with the kids! I was also very impressed with Treasures! The app that kept me up to date with my little one was an excellent sweet touch that made me even more comfortable to leave him there. The location was also amazing since I could ski down and see him playing or skiing! The kids snowmobile experience was exactly what my son wanted! It is an excellent choice to have! The FunZone was exceedingly awesome since it provided me with an option for when it got too cold!!!"

"We can't wait to return!! We've been coming every year since 2014 and we were so excited to bring our 6 month old this time! We take advantage of everything the resort has to offer and never have to leave while we're there, it's a true vacation! From the awesome staff at Treasures to the evening hot chocolate and the delicious maple wings at the Morse Mountain Grille, we can't wait to come back."

"We had a great holiday at Smuggs. Our grandchildren loved the ski school program and Treasures. And we enjoyed having the chance to ski both with and without the children. We also had a particularly fun time at the FunZone, and enjoyed watching the fireworks and ski parade down the mountain."

"Overall the vacation was amazing! Staff everywhere was so friendly and helpful. Weather wasn't great for two of the days and yet the mountain barely skipped a beat, lessons and lifts were running as usual. I can't wait to come back!"

"Everything was awesome especially activities for kids. Being able to have the kids in the ski school and then be able to go to fun zone, swimming, ice skating, snow playing made it all a truly enjoyable trip. The lodge was also ski in / out which made it very convenient. Definitely planning to come back!"

"From booking to check out it was an easy process. There were quick responses to questions and courteous reservationists and front desk personnel. The location and accommodations were perfect. We took advantage of many of the restaurants. The Grille was our favorite. We felt the food and service there were the best. We booked a snowmobile tour which was wonderful. Most of the resort drivers and lift personnel were nice. The property is beautiful with much to do."

"Loved the low key, family vacation we had at Smuggs. With two teenagers, we were worried that there wouldn't be enough to do, but Smuggs kept them busy on the mountain during the day, and offered several activities for them in the evenings. We all enjoyed our time& are grateful for the relaxing vacation!"

Our accommodations were very suitable as the condo had a loft area for sleeping. the location was great as we could walk over the the base for skiing and restaurants. The shuttle service was very convenient and the staff was friendly and helpful. The Christmas fireworks were awesome too! We hope to come back soon!"
