Smugglers' Notch, Vermont is a mountain pass located in Lamoille County. The notch separates Mount Mansfield, Vermont's highest peak, from Spruce Peak and Sterling Ridge. Some locals refer to the area as "the quiet side of the Mountain," and the road through the notch, Route 108, is one of two officially designated scenic highways in the state. At Jeffersonville, Route 108 meets with Route 15, the area's main east-west highway.

A section of Route 108 is closed at the summit during the winter, and the notch becomes a winter-wonderland for snowshoeing, skiing, and ice climbing. Two major ski resorts adjacent to the notch, Smugglers' Notch Resort, and Stowe Mountain Resort, make this area a focal point of activity throughout the year.
