Smugglers' Notch Resort

activities / Winter sports

Lonely Planet review

Consistently less crowded than Stowe, this family-oriented resort on the west side of Smugglers' Notch is spread over Sterling (3010ft), Madonna (3640ft) and Morse (2250ft) mountains. It has incredible alpine and cross-country skiing (78 trails and 14 miles' worth), dogsled rides, a lit tubing hill, nightly family entertainment, and the only learn-to-ski program for two- to five-year-olds in the country.
