If you stay in Waterbury, Smugs is an hour drive. Stowe, Bolton, MRG and SB are 30 minutes tops.

Smuggler's Notch is a significantly better ski resort than MRG, and I like MRG. And for the sort of skiing you like doing, Smuggs is probably 100% better than MRG.

I gotta say they are pretty darn close in terms of challenge and terrain, maybe Smuggs has a slightly higher pucker factor if you search it out. Happen to have a soft spot for MRG even in spite of having a better overall day at Smuggs (did a back to back trip this week).

Something about getting 3rd place in the parking lot and zero lines midweek, and arguably the best or non-arguably at least top-tier NoVT mogul and tree skiing... with pretty darn fun groomers to mix it up. Just warms my heart every time I go.

Waterbury to Smuggs is a little inconvenient but well within reasonable range for a vacation based day trip. We just did a trip to MRG from Jeffersonville. 1hr 5mins over the hill. A nice drive really.
