Smuggler’s Notch is one of Vermont’s premier areas for ice climbing. Located in the Green Mountains between Stowe and Jeffersonville, VT, it offers single to multi pitch ice and alpine style routes for up to 4 pitches. The alpine routes are similar to those on Mount Washington with less of the approach.
