Spring is in the air. While we all are noticing the days getting longer, it is a friendly reminder that daylight savings time starts on March 14th . Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead and spring into the new season. There is a lot going on here at Smuggs so we would like to pass along some seasonal reminders to add to your calendar while you enjoy the end of the 2020-21 ski season.

VEC Smart Hub Usage
The winter months can be brutal on electric bills especially for those who are using electric power as their primary source of heat. There is a tracking system through the Vermont Electric Cooperative that can help you monitor your power usage. A home or multiple homes can track daily or even hourly usage and the information is provided through a simple text or email alerts. Visit https://vermontelectric.coop/smarthub for details. Please have your account number handy to register. Not tech savvy? Simply call (800)832-2667 for a representative will assist you.
Reminder From Smuggs- Protocol for Indoor Facilities During Covid Restrictions
Reservations for indoor facilities are required – Reminder – When you or your guests are planning to come to Smugglers remember that all indoor facilities and programs require pre-registration for both homeowners and guests as long as the State mandated Covid capacities are in place for the Smugglers’ facilities. All guests (and homeowners) that have access according to the Smugglers’ Benefit Grid can pre-register beginning 14 days in advance of the date they would like to attend. If a homeowner or guest attempts to register for a certain time or program and it is full, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and Smugglers’ will attempt to accommodate their request. Guests (homeowners) can also go to a facility or program 15 minutes after the start of a reservations cycle and if guests haven’t shown up and there is room, it is possible that they can be accommodated. Once a guest signs up for a specific date and time, they are sent an email reminder and, in that reminder, it tells guests what to do if they want to cancel their registration. The reminder also advises them if they do not show up to a reservation on time, 15 minutes after their registered time, their registration will be cancelled. Cooperation with this process will be appreciated.
