Smugglers’ Notch Resort

When it comes to delivering a kid-friendly vacation, the littlest things often yield biggest memories. Gathering your family to savor cups of hot chocolate around the bonfire, sharing an exhilarating run down the mountain, or marveling together during the evening torchlight parade and fireworks ... those are a few of the little things that families love about their Smugglers' Notch Resort vacation.

For Winter 2017/2018, Smugglers' was voted the #1 Resort Overall by the readers of SKI Magazine - proof that Smugglers' gets the little things right for the entire family, from the quality of child care, to the children's ski and snowboard school, to oodles of on-mountain amenities and family entertainment. Add skiing and riding on three mountains for every experience level from beginner to expert, mountainside accommodations, innovative skiing and snowboarding programs for ages 2 1/2 and older, evening entertainment, and a host of off-slope activities. From the ArborTrek Zip Line Canopy Tour to snowshoe nature treks, there's so much going on that everyone can fill their days with experiences that thrill, intrigue, educate or relax.
