Looking for a family friendly ski resort? Smuggler Notch in Vermont has been voted the #1 Family Ski Resort in the Northeast for 2015, by Ski Magazine. Starting at 2 ½ years of age, children can enter their award winning ski school. Smugglers Notch is the only resort with kid-friendly programs that divides age groups by very small increments and skill levels to ensure your child is in the proper learning environment. Fun is at the heart of every program, and lessons are customized the same for children as for adults. All-day children’s programs are available for ages 2-15, giving parents time to explore the slopes or enter ski school themselves. The resort caters to children with youth sized equipment, lifts, and slopes designed for first-timers as well as seasoned skiers.
For parents traveling with children too young to enjoy the ski school, there is onsite child care. The Treasures Child Care Center provides nurturing vacation child care for children 6 week to 3 years. The center is located slope side in the Resort Village, and is perfect for parents who want to enjoy their ski adventure but want the convenience of being able to check of their little ones throughout the day.
Comfortable family-style, condominium homes with fully equipped kitchens, cable TV and internet access make for the perfect stay. You can choose a secluded setting or one with quick access to the resort activities.

The resorts activities are not limited only to the winter season, summer is just as exciting with lake activities, kid’s camps, as well as treetop zip lining adventures. Spend the day in the great outdoors, fishing, swimming, picnicking, or rent a canoe and explore the reservoir on your own.
