Alisa Anderson, Program Director

Alisa grew up in Richmond, Vermont, and then went on to attended Johnson State College, where she received a BA in Outdoor Education. While earning her bachelor's degree, Alisa worked here at Smuggs as a ski instructor.

After graduating, Alisa went on to work at a ski resort in Colorado teaching adaptive skiing, and then moved to North Carolina with her family. Now, to our great benefit, Alisa has returned to Vermont and to Smugglers' Notch Resort as the Adaptive Program Director. Alisa has worked hard making SNAP bigger than ever, with more activities and more ways for participants to enjoy all that our mountains have to offer (and more!). This in turn has brought more and more of our staff into SNAP, offering fun and rewarding one-on-one experiences with our guests.

Alisa lives in Jeffersonville with her wonderful husband Lee, who can be seen up on the mountain in winter as well, and their four year-old daughter Marlee and one year-old Elyn. Outside of work and family time, they enjoy camping, swimming, and golfing, and an occasional nightcap with friends.

Alisa is in the office Monday through Friday between 8 am and 4 pm. You can reach Alisa at extension 8502 (802.644.8502) or via email at aanderson@smuggs.com.
