#1 Overall Resort in the East - SKI Magazine Reader Survey 2022

We’re All In This Together.

A successful ski and ride season at Smuggs this winter depends on each of us accepting a shared responsibility when it comes to safeguards and procedures related to COVID-19.

Our commitment to providing a great vacation experience has not wavered. We believe getting out on the mountain is one of the best activities you and your family can enjoy during the winter. All of our policies are subject to change based on the evolving nature of the pandemic, as well as federal, state, and local public health guidelines.

Please stay home if you are sick or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. To learn more about our safety protocols, please read on.

We want you and your family to be safe when traveling to Smuggs. The information below covers the current Resort policies & guidelines. This will be updated as needed to guide you.

For the easiest access to the upper mountains, go to the top of Morse Mountain then take the Midway trail over to Madonna and Sterling mountains. To return to the Village from the upper mountains take the Meadowlark trail. Shuttle service from the Village to the upper mountains is also available from the Welcome Sign in the Village.
