Making fun of winter

Snow just makes you want to play, it could be skiing, snowboarding, sledding, making a snowman, or making a snow angel. It has a magical power that puts a smile on your face.

This weekend we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains! Tomorrow we plan to have the Sterling Lift, Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift, Madonna II Lift, Village Lift, and Sir Henry’s Glider. We have 14 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. 13 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including Smugglers’ Alley for a grand total of 58 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are machine groomed and packed powder with average base depths of 12 to 40 inches. We are presently making snow on Waterfall, Upper Chilcoot, and Practice Slope. Currently, it is cloudy and 14 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 0 to 5 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for sunny skies early with increasing clouds and a high of 20 degrees.

Take a Moment to Accept Winter Back Into Your Heart


Skiing in June

Hugh is certainly staying occupied this Summer. Here he is making some “turns” back in June.

Mike Chait here, filling in for Hugh. Thought it would be a good time to remind everyone that the Winter season is approaching! That’s right. We’re 98 days away from our projected opening day. What are you doing for a pass this season? The Pass Store is now open and ready to lock in your super cool status as a Smugglers’ Passholder! Head over to check out the most affordable shred experience in Vermont. So, what are we doing for the next 98 days? My mother always told me the best way to pass the time is to stay occupied. Well, that’s exactly what we’re doing this Summer here at Smugglers’.



Since Memorial Day weekend, we’ve been tearing up the dirt on our Mountain Bike trail network. Kids are loving the skills park, and so are their parents! We’ve got some fun MTB events coming up as well, including great times as usual at FallFest 2018. Tickets are going fast. Head here to pick yours up today!


It’s been hot. So we’ve retreated to the mountaintops to relax with a cool breeze! It’s nature’s air conditioning, you know. In addition to all the great mountain hikes in the area, did you know there’s a brand new trail that’s wheelchair accessible, right in the Notch? Read more here.

DGPTDisc Golf

With two of the top 18 hole disc golf courses in the world, clearly, we’ve been out throwing discs quite a bit.

Spectating is free, so get here to watch the top pros compete for the most prestigious┬átitle in disc golf. Events run from September 2-6, right here at the Smugglers’ Notch Disc Golf Center.
