Smugglers' Notch 55+ Club
For seniors on the hill, not over the hill!

The Smugglers 55+ Club is for seniors who like to ski (alpine or Nordic). Snowboard, snowshoe, and enjoy being with their peers. Non-skiers are welcome and often enjoy board games instead of skiing. Our goal is simple: get out of the four walls, break the daily routine, meet a wide variety of people and be active. The Club
•Actively caters to all abilities.
•Is informal, welcoming and un-structured.
•Often keeps going throughout the year when the snow is gone.
•Is a great way to extend your contacts into the community.
•Is a great way to get acquainted with aspects of the community that one might not otherwise be exposed to.


Plan to join us for our first meeting on December 2, 2020. We gather every Wednesday at 9:00 am in the Village Lodge with a continental breakfast and socializing followed at 9:30 am with a short meeting. We will enjoy outdoor activities such as snowshoeing, Nordic or Alpine skiing and snowboarding. One may join a skill level group or ski/snowboard on your own.

The afternoon program will start on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, beginning at 1:00 pm unless otherwise announced during the morning meeting.

Every Wednesday we will be SKIING IN THE MORNING.

Meetings: 9:00 am on Wednesdays in the Village Lodge starting the first Wednesday after Thanksgiving.
Membership: $30/year (Your first meeting is complimentary - come and check us out!) For more information contact the
55+ Club.
