Ski Area
“Smugglers Notch averages over 300 inches of snow every winter and we think Smuggs has some of the best terrain for skiing and riding in Vermont. If alpine skiing is not your thing, there are plenty of cross country ski and hiking trails to enjoy. There are just as many activities to do in the summer. Mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing to name a few.”
