Every year we all pile into cars the day after Christmas and caravan up to the winter wonder land of Smugglers Notch. Smugglers Notch Resort has been voted the #1 family resort year after year. My mom cut it out of a Family Fun Magazine 8 years ago. After our first year, my family loved it so much that my parents bought property right on the ski slope so we would be able to return every year. It has only grown more fonder as we continually vacation at this ski resort.
Smugglers Notch has created the perfect family atmosphere. Ski School begins at 8:45 and runs till 2:15. The only requirement is that your children can walk. My little sister has been skiiing since she was 3!!! There are endless slopes across three mountains. So many that we still haven’t been on them all.
After a hard day of skiing there are indoor and outdoor heated pools. Yes, you can swim while it is snowing. There are family fun zones with huge blow up toys and life size games, ice skating, dog sledding, tubing, Ben and Jerry’s ice cream shops, along with multiple amazing restaurants right within the resort. Every need is taken care of and the list of things to do goes on and on. We just returned only a few days ago and I can’t wait to go back next year!
