Outdoor Adventures: A Family Affair
In this age of ubiquitous Internet, smart phones, and video games, it's so easy for kids (and adults) to view the world from the tiny rectangle of their computer screen and spend endless "recreation" hours without moving a muscle beyond those that control their texting thumbs. But despite, or perhaps in response to, the increase in technology and virtual worlds, the active family adventure vacation is on the rise.
Smugglers' Notch Resort has responded to this increased demand by implementing new and exciting, fun-for-the-whole-family outdoor challenges to help guests connect with the stunning Green Mountain scenery around them while getting their adrenaline pumping with high-energy, thrilling eco-adventures. In addition to Smugglers' tried and true favorites, including zip lining, rock climbing, and the multi-sport Via Ferrata adventure, the 2013 summer season will introduce the newest set of exciting challenges – an invigorating Treetop Obstacle Course and an array of Innovative Climbing Adventures.
