#1 Family Friendly Resort in the East! - SKI Magazine Reader Survey 2020

Smugglers' Notch, Vermont is a Winter Vacation Wonderland!

3 big mountains of skiing and snowboarding surround our self-contained Resort Village.

Attention Skiers and Riders - update 3/23/20

Conditions on the ski trails at Smuggs are currently very dangerous as surfaces are extremely hard and icy, so much so that even traveling them with a groomer is risky. Any falls can lead to uncontrolled sliding with serious consequences. Please keep off the mountains until the weather warms and allows surfaces to soften. The little bit of snow we expect to receive today and tonight will only serve to mask the danger. We know everyone wants to get out for some fresh air and exercise but please use good judgment. We don’t have rescue service readily available at the resort. Any rescue attempts require first responder assistance and can be difficult to accomplish as we learned Saturday afternoon. Your actions can put others at risk and our local EMS resources have other priorities right now!

The current weather forecasts is for tonight’s light snow to end with a period of freezing rain. Temperatures at the summits and the base area are not forecasted to rise enough to soften surfaces for the remainder of the week and through the coming weekend. Temperatures will need to rise considerably above freezing for an extended period before conditions change.
