Smugglers' - Season in Review: This Mountain Has Heart.

A recap of the 2014-2015 season. This Mountain Has Heart.
Smugglers' - This Mountain Has Heart. 3rd Annual Pond Skimming Contest & Chillin' & Grillin' Tailgate Party - Apr. 4, 2015

Smugglers' 3rd Annual Pond Skimming Contest and Chillin' & Grillin' Tailgate Party did not disappoint. Despite colder than average temperatures (and many inches of fresh accumulation beckoning on the mountain), the turnout to this year's near-end-of-the-season party was as spectacular. So fire up the grill, crack open the cooler and adorn your preferred flotation device. This is going to be one wet and wild ride!
Smugglers' - 3rd Annual Extreme Skiing Challenge - Mar. 1, 2015

This weekend, The Smugglers' Notch Ski and Snowboard Club hosted the 3rd Annual Extreme Skiing Challenge! The course: the Madonna headwall - an ungroomed steep with a double fall line descent filled with cliffs, bumps, trees, chutes, and stumps.
Smugglers' - Dressing for Success on the Mountain

At Smugglers’ Notch Resort, the TREASURES nursery caregivers dress a lot of little ones over the course of the Winter. At TREASURES, children as young as 2˝ can learn how to ski in an introductory program. In this video, TREASURES director Shelly Schaffer offers words of wisdom as well as clothing tips to parents who are eager to introduce their young child to skiing.
Smugglers' - Powder Day - Feb. 3, 2015

8" of fresh in the woods. These are the Powder Days.
Smugglers' - Join the Club - Feb. 1, 2015

This Sunday, Smugglers' Ski and Snowboard Club hosted a skier/boarder cross event on Lower F.I.S. Meanwhile, we caught up with the Freeski Team, who, led by head coach Brian Salatino, were heading up Madonna to train on the Headwall for competitions this season.
Smugglers' - MLK Powder Day - Jan. 20th, 2015

Another year, another MLK weekend, another super snow-storm. You might think about booking a vacation with us on this weekend in 2016. At this rate, it's as safe a weather system bet as any! For those of us lucky enough to extend our long weekend, 18" of fresh powder beckoned us into the woods.
Smugglers' - All Three Mountains - Jan. 16, 2015

Heading into the long MLK weekend, we thought it might be prudent to check in with all three mountains at Smugglers' Notch Resort. Along the way, we tag along with snowboarders Nikhil Bhaynager of Sterling, VA and Luke Kalinowski of Boylestown, PA. Their verdict: Smugglers' has the best conditions they've experienced this season.
Smugglers' - New Year's First Timers - Jan. 3, 2015

Smuggs TV's cameras spent the better part of today on the learning hill at Morse Mountain. We met up with first-timers Silas, Riley and Elijah on Sir Henry's Hill. But as conditions were also ripe on the upper mountains, we tag along with Hugh Johnson and his son as they rip up some fresh powder on Upper F.I.S.
Smugglers' - Damon Day 5 - Dec. 17, 2014

Nor'Easter Damon blessed Smuggs with almost three feet of snow in its first four days. On day five, Smuggs ski patrol dropped every rope on Madonna, opening up more than sixty trails with some of the best December conditions anyone around here can remember. Smuggs TV also caught up with the riding crew at Gilson Snowboards, who bring some of their Poconos snowstyle to the Green Mountains.
Smugglers' - Winter Storm Damon, Day 2 - Dec. 12, 2014

By day two of Winter storm Damon, Smugglers' had already received 13" of new snow. A warm, wet blanket of Sierra cement provided the perfect base for a sum total of 21" over four days - and counting! With another three inches expected today, perhaps two to three inches more overnight, this storm is not going silently.

Smuggs TV catches day two of Damon action on Sterling, followed by a session in Birch Run Park and a visit with Gilson Snowboards - they are throwing a demo session all day tomorrow (Saturday). Oh, and the wheels are spinning on MI and MII. Get yours this weekend!
Smugglers' - Got Kids? - Dec. 5, 2014

Got kids? We've got you covered. Smugglers' was voted the #1 Kid-Friendly Resort (East) by the readers of Ski Magazine (Ski Magazine Reader Survey 2015). Smugglers' kid-friendly entertainment spans on and off the hill, from our award-winning Snow Sport University to Billy Bob Bear and Mogul Mouse, who frequent weekly activity staples like the Winter Carnival. Take home the thrill of discovery - join us this winter for an unforgettable family vacation experience.
Smugglers' - Opening Snowday - Nov. 22, 2014
