Default Smugglers Notch March 25, 26, 27th

Going up with some friends for the weekend in some slope side Condo's. Any reccomendations on things to do in the evening?

We're a mixture of boarders and skiers of all abilities. I've never been to Smuggs. What should we expect?

I'm not really the guy to give out nightlife suggestions, but some options would be the Brewski pub which is very close to the Resort, of hit up Burlington or St. Albans for nightlife.
Have fun on the mountain just don't take Ruthie's to Curley's cutback/Meadowlark -these trails head from the upper mountais to the lower and have some very flat spots which can be maddening especially when the wet snow has gotten rutted and then frozen hard. Midway can be like this too -go to their website and check out the trail map.
Better to take the shuttle when going from/to the Upper mountains to Morse mtn.
Also, the Madonna II lift is SLOW.
The mid station of the Madonna 1 lift sucks for snowboards,there is a flat spot right there.Better to go to the top.
If you take the Chilicoot trail from the top , make sure you carry some speed though the first section and the first left hand turn to prevent having to unbuckle.

Smuggs is geared mainly toward families w/ kids (and exells at it). Sadly this means nightlife at the resort is nonexistant. Beware of the grocery store at the premices, extremely expensive and poorly stocked. Get your groceries elsewere. have fun!
