A few of the comments from SKI Magazine readers ...

"Extreme dedication to creating the best customer experience possible.”

"Best family resort in the East. Our kids LOVE going to Smuggs! So do we. Easy resort to enjoy, great skiing with a variety of terrain, and it's a slower, more 'unplugged' pace, which is a great antidote to a fast-paced working life.”

"I really love the friendliness and enthusiasm of the staff. They're in it for the love of everything outdoors."

"Smugglers' is the place I go with my family because I know my kids will be safe, have lots of options for entertainment, and will be tired out by the end of the day! On top of that, the terrain is unsurpassed."

Smugglers' also received top 10 ranking among Eastern resorts in the categories of lodging, character/ambiance, dining/après sport, snow quality, grooming, terrain variety, and terrain challenge.

"My husband's family has been coming to Smuggs since the mid 1990s. He proposed to me on the slopes and now we are watching our son discover the joy of skiing at Smuggs. 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 Smuggs, it's clean, the vibe is awesome, it's has the best terrain and snowfall in the east in my opinion and the prices can't be beat. 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 fantastic week with children and grandkids. Our son came who hasn't been back to Smuggs in 10 years. Very nostalgic week for him as he explored all the new changes that have occurred. 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."

Jenny from New York, NY

"We absolutely love coming to Smuggs. This was our third trip up (one was last December the second was just three weeks ago)! Brendan is an expert skier and says the skiing is best on east coast. Ski school is phenomenal for our older girls and while we didn't bring the twins along for this trip, they loved Treasures during our first and second visits. Hospitality is incredible as well."

"Excellent experience. The condo was first class and very well appointed. The folks at Smugglers' were wonderful. 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. You have a very classy operation at Smugglers' and I would certainly be inclined to return."

"We had a fabulous time. Great skiing, No lift lines and friendly staff. Clean rooms. We couldn't as for more. 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! Smuggs always provides superior customer service and an excellent vacation experience. That combined with no lift lines makes for an amazing winter vacation."

This was our 1st winter vacation to Vermont as a family. 2 out of 3 were beginner skiers and the ski school and instructors met and exceeded our expectations on all accounts!!

"It was an excellent experience. I loved the childrens 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 take advantage of everything the resort has to offer and never have to leave while we're there, it's a true vacation!

Kelli from Devon, PA

"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!"

"Returning to Smuggs is just like coming home to a cottage or other place where great memories are made. From the warm welcoming check-in to the clean well-provisioned unit to the lifties and ski hill conditions, everything was just as expected. Of course, having 48 inches of new snow during the week certainly helped! Goodtime Charlie and Jammin' Sam at Bootlegger's entertained us with all the old favorites, and some new ones as well. We look forward to our annual week spent at Smuggs, and this one certainly did not disappoint."

Margaret from Brampton, Ontario
Stayed 03/10/2018-03/15/2018

"We had a great time. This was our first ski vacation and the best vacation we have ever had because we all got to ski every day. My kids are 6 and 9, the ski lessons were close to our condo and the other free activities such as Ozone and snow tubing at night were fun for the kids. The 2 hour ski lesson each day allowed mom and dad to have some ski time to themselves. As an added bonus: 1. I lost weight doing all that skiing. 2. Cost is cheaper than an all inclusive sun vacation. 3. Kids prefer a ski trip instead of an all inclusive sun vacation.

George from Yonkers, NY

"It was very memorable, exciting, and adventurous. My granddaughters really enjoyed the skiing, pool, the snow tubes and the FunZone. Our time was short and we really tried to accomplish as much as we could in the time we were there. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. I honestly must say that my family really had a great time, we all talked about the experience and decided to return with more time for a longer vacation."

Liz from Plymouth, MA

"Fantastic. As a busy, working mom of 2 young kids, it's tough to find time to relax. Smuggs is a 5+ hour drive for us (longer with potty stops!), but once we get there, it's a sigh of relief. The kids genuinely love it, and there's something for every taste. And, icing on the cake...I can drop them off at camp, and I don't have to pack a lunch!! I can be certain my kids will have a great day, learn some new things, and eat well."

We all had an amazing time at your resort. Everyone that works at Smuggs is very friendly and helpful. The kids ski camp was wonderful and all the ski instructors were great with my boys! Our Mountainview condo was perfect because it was big enough and in close proximity to everything.

Until we finally entered the resort I was still anxious, afraid that I may have trusted too much on the advertisements and on internet site. After all we could as well have found a ski resort close to Montreal. I am very glad that Smugglers' delivered on the promise, and even surpassed my best expectations for a family vacation.

Reuniting with friends among the staff and other guests and owners; great skiing and snowboarding; fabulous entertainment with Goodtime Charlie and Jammin' Sam and everyone on the E-Team; and a general feeling that Smugglers' continues to be the best place for families to spend their vacation time together."

"The memories of our Smuggs vacation will truly last a lifetime. The staff is well trained and treated our family like their own. The resort is peaceful enough to enjoy without feeling stressed, but with enough buzz to keep us going. We are looking forward to coming back, hopefully more than once!"

"This was our first trip to Smugglers' Notch with our three and five-year-old boys. The ski school was awesome and both were skiing after four days and our five-year-old was confidently going down green slopes. Our accommodations were perfect and convenient. Our overall experience was excellent and we will definitely be back. Thank you to your entire staff for a wonderful vacation."

"We loved the mountain. The grooming was very good and we really enjoyed the long double chairlifts. Could also see that snowmaking is updated and important at Smuggs. That old school charm is lost at most resorts but is alive and well at Smuggs."

"While the facilities at Smuggs are great, it is the people (many of whom have long history and relationships) that make is such a special place!"

"Whenever we talk skiing with families with kids (on lift rides at other ski areas, at the Mountain Grille Bar, you name it), we recommend Smuggs. It has given us so many "priceless" family memories over the many years we've been going there."
