Foggy Mountain Breakdown

Snow covered trees on Madonna Liftline. 3 inches of new snow (with a little bit o’ mixed precip) in the past 24 hours, and 11 inches in the past 3 days.
The Black Bear Tavern in the Base Lodge. Some say that each beverage consumed while wearing your ski or snowboard boots equals a run (that’s a lot of hot chocolate). We have Apres Sport Parties here – on Fridays and Sundays Jammin’ Sam plays live, and on Saturdays Goodtime Charlie hosts a Trivia Show

Sam’s Run and Jammin’ Sam with Goodtime


Sam’s Run

Snowmaking at the intersection of Sam’s Run and Dixie’s Knoll. You can see the snowmaking guns lining the trails.

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh.  The Snowmaking Crew has recently been busy on Morse Mountain – the Morse Highlands will see trails opening soon! Skiing on Garden Path and Sam’s Run, I saw the snowguns a-blazin’. These efforts, along with the record natural snowfall, sets us up nicely for the holidays.


Here’s an assessment from that ridin’, slidin’ snowboard man Mike Chait: “How much snow fell last night? Well, as the old saying goes, ‘Hard tellin’ not knowin’!’ Winds caused some havoc on the hill. We’re calling it 5 inches. Could be more. Definitely not less.”




Bootleggers’ Lounge hosts nightly events like the Acoustic Trio, which became the Acoustic Quartet last night. Left to Right: Eli – awesome guitarist, Topher – sitting in on mandolin, the incomparable Jammin’ Sam and Downpour & Smuggs legend Goodtime Charlie (49 years at the Resort and still going strong).

But Smuggs is about so much more than skiing and riding. Our Activities department has many offerings like STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) programs, Tubing, Airboarding, Fireworks, Hot Chocolate at the daily Bonfire, Bingo, Karaoke, and the most excellent live music.
