Smugglers' Notch Resort is an all-season Wonderland for kids and adults alike! The resort has multiple pool areas, 2 separate freshwater swimming holes, beach volleyball, basketball, and tennis courts, a skateboard park, mountain bike training tracks and trails, and a frisbee/disc golf course. Right outside the resort is another disc golf course and Arbortrek (a zipline/treetop obstacle course site).
For winter enthusiasts, the resort has 78 trails, 8 lifts, and over 65% snow-making coverage, Smuggs skiing and riding is perfect for whatever you seek. With over 1000 acres of terrain, there is something for everyone. For the novice, Morse Mountain is the ultimate learning mountain especially catering to children. The upper mountains offer a variety of challenging cruisers, 22 glade runs, three top level snowboard parks, and some of the most challenging terrain for the experienced skier with the fourth highest vertical drop (2610) in New England. The resort is also know for "the Black Hole," the only triple black diamond in the East. There are also 58 km of cross country/snowshoe trails. Here's the trail report:
Our home is located in the Village Center, and is a stone's throw from all of the above activities and adventures that await you outside your doorstep. Walk to everything, including the lifts - we have one of the best locations in the Village.
Smugglers' Notch is a four season family vacation destination in the heart of northern Vermont. It was originally the dream of IBM President Tom Watson Jr. to create a replica of Zermatt, Switzerland in northern Vermont with the model of a self contained ski village built at the bottom of several mountains for skiing opportunities. Smuggs has evolved into the #1 family resort (SKI magazine 12 years in a row) in the country with excellent children's programs, amenities, and activities.
Our unit is a cozy picture of what a vacation chalet should be. The 750 sqft unit consists of a main level with kitchen, dining area, living room (with pullout sofa), a bedroom with bunkbeds to sleep 4 (including a TV/Roku), and a full bathroom contained in 3 separate rooms (sink room/bathtub room/toilet room) for additional convenience. The loft serves as a master bedroom with a queen-sized bed and another 42" TV/Roku. The loft also holds the unit's front-loading washer and dryer. Wi-fi is available through Smuggs for a small daily/weekly fee so that you can stay connected to the office and family if need be. The main level opens onto a back deck with an outdoor table and six chairs, which in turn opens onto a large village green space facing the basketball and volleyball courts. The kitchen is fully equipped so stay in and cook for the family if you choose, or, enjoy the many onsite dining options - either way it's all about convenience and comfort.
