Smugglers Notch Beginner Skiing

About one fifth of Smugglers’ trails are suitable for beginners, but novices are confined to the green trails at Morse Mountain.

Beginner skiing at Smugglers Notch is confined entirely to the Morse Mountain area; no green-rated trails are to be found on either Madonna or Sterling mountains. 12 trails serviced by three lifts and one magic carpet provide enough varied green runs to keep novices interested. While connected to the bigger mountains next door, this naturally separated pod of green trails also allows beginners and ski-schoolers the luxury of having their own space, free from speedy experts that may concern them while they are on the hill. For those looking to venture into freestyle snowsports, there is even a small beginner-focused terrain park on the Log Jam trail.

Morse Mountain also rises immediately adjacent to the Smugglers’ Notch Village, creating a family atmosphere in the beginner area. This area may get crowded during busy vacation weekends, but all those on the slopes at Morse Mountain will be taking it generally slow and are happy to stay out of one another’s way.
