Smuggler's Notch

This Vermont resort is considered one of the most family-friendly in the Northeast, but that doesn’t mean it has nothing for skiers and boarders who really love to shred. Smuggler’s Notch is most-well known for being home to The Black Hole, the Northeast’s only triple black diamond trail. Beginner skiers will fare well here too, though. The resort spans across three mountains, offering runs that are appropriate for all levels. And even if you don’t like to ski, you’ll easily find fun activities to pass the time, including Smuggler’s zip lining tour over the canopy, tubing, workshops for arts and crafts as well as entertainment center’s for the whole family to enjoy.
