Cold-weather revelers celebrate the snowy season in all its glory during the inaugural Smugglers’ Notch Snowshoe Festival and the annual Northern Vermont Snowshoe Challenge. On Saturday, outdoor adventurers of all abilities stretch their legs on beginner, intermediate and advanced guided snowshoe excursions through the resort’s scenic trail network. Snow bunnies ages 1 through 6 can burn off energy in the 1/2K kids’ fun run. The frosty fête continues with food, drink, snowshoe demos and family-friendly games. The competition heats up on Sunday when athletes make strides in an 8K adult race. On your mark, get set, snow!
