Do I need to know anything else to take advantage of the "additional day" lift ticket prices?
You must pay for your additional days on the first day when you purchase your ticket and these must be consecutive days.
Are the half-day tickets only for the afternoons like most of the other resorts?
Half-day tickets can be purchased either in the morning or the afternoon. They can be valid either from 8 am to 12 pm or from 12 pm to 4 pm.
Can I get a rain-check if I don't like the conditions?
Yes, Smuggler’s Notch is among the few ski resorts that offer this option. If you don’t like the conditions within the first hour of skiing, you can turn your ticket in and get a voucher for another day!
Do I need a lift ticket to snowshoe or skin up the mountain?
No, but this is only allowed during non-operational hours. It is also not allowed between 10 pm and 6 am.
