Who We Are

The Smugglers 55+ Club is for seniors who like to ski (alpine or Nordic). Snowboard, snowshoe, and enjoy being with their peers. Non-skiers are welcome and often enjoy board games instead of skiing. Our goal is simple: get out of the four walls, break the daily routine, meet a wide variety of people and be active. The Club

  • Actively caters to all abilities.
  • Is informal, welcoming and un-structured.  
  • Often keeps going throughout the year when the snow is gone.  
  • Is a great way to extend your contacts into the community.
  • Is a great way to get acquainted with aspects of the community that one might not otherwise be exposed to.

The basic format in a normal season is continental breakfast at 9 AM at the Morse base lodge followed by a brief meeting. Then skiing in the morning until the urge for lunch strikes. The afternoon program starts at 1PM. Or you can ski after lunch.

  • 50% off regular senior day rate on Wednesdays only

We have been going gangbusters ever since.
