If the Smuggs locals are like the Stowe locals, they've been avoiding the
resort like the plague during the President's week crowds.  All the regulars
came back out today after hiding from the crowds for the past 9 days.  And
the tourists don't really know what woods shots to ski or where any of the
goods are... so if you can brave the crowded base area, the more discrete
locals' glades went untouched a lot of the week.
