Family Friendly, Environmentally Friendly
In 2006, Smugglers’ Notch was one of only two businesses in Vermont to be named an Environmental Leader and, in 2008, Smugglers’ received the Governor’s Award in recognition of its carbon footprint reduction initiatives. As Thomke points out, the environment is their greatest asset as a ski resort. So they work hard to keep it healthy and thus keep their business healthy, too. From using plants to treat 45 percent of their wastewater to kitchen composting to a no-idling policy and five-star energy rating construction, Smugglers’ has made environmental responsibility a top priority.
