As we write this Smugglers’ Notch is digging out from a 2 foot snow storm in early March. The full service ski season including all lesson and camp programs is scheduled to run for almost another month so there is definitely time for some skiing over March spring break.
If you take your teens and tweens to Smugglers’ Notch this spring, or plan to visit next season, be sure to follow the links below to read our posts about our five favorite things to do:
- Ski Experience the scenic trails on Madonna and Sterling Mountains. On a clear day you can see the Adirondacks, Lake Champlian and Vermont’s Green Mountains from the Upper Drifter trail.
- Learn Take snowboard and ski lessons as part of the resort’s Snow Sports University Notch Squad all day camp for tweens and teens ages 11-15.
- Explore the treetops via ziplines, skybridges and rappelling on the Arbortrek Canopy Tour. Our teen wants to go back!
- Stay close to the action in one of the hundreds of rental and timeshare condos available on the mountain. Shuttle buses and ski in/ski out access allow teens lots of independence.
- Ride Stop by the nordic center to snowshoe, go ice skating, try dog sledding, go cross country skiing or take a snowmobile ride! We loved the chance to get out in the woods.
Smugglers’ Notch goes all out to serve families with teens and tweens. A four hour drive from Boston, it is worth the trip!
Disclosure: During our visit Smugglers’ Notch provided lodging, activities and lift passes, group lessons and #1 son’s Arbortrek experience. We paid for meals, private lessons and the snowmobile ride on our own. All opinions are 100% ours and we were in no way obligated to write a positive review.
