Smugglers' Notch Resort president Robert F. Mulcahy has announced his plans to retire at the end of October.
Smugglers' Notch Resort president Robert F. Mulcahy has announced his plans to retire at the end of October 2013. Over the course of a 44-year affiliation with the resort, Mulcahy has played a key role in developing Smugglers' into an award-winning and internationally recognized family vacation destination. The resort most recently was voted #1 Overall Resort in the Eastern U.S. and Canada by SKI Magazine readers, who also voted Smugglers' #1 for Family Vacations for the 15th year.
Mulcahy began his association with Smugglers' and the ski industry at Stanmar, Inc., a Massachusetts-based real estate development firm that purchased Smugglers' in 1973. He had been serving as Stanmar's controller since 1969, with prior experience at the public accounting firm Ernst & Young. With increasing responsibilities for Smugglers' added to his duties at Stanmar, Mulcahy moved to Vermont in 1980 to take over management of the resort, including the real estate component. He was named president of the resort in 1983.
During Mulcahy's tenure as president at Smugglers', the resort experienced significant expansion, including development of a vibrant village center with dining and shopping and five communities comprising 600 condominium vacation homes. He has overseen the addition of recreation facilities and amenities that include pool and waterslide complexes, restaurants, teen centers, an indoor FunZone with games and climbing inflatables, snow tubing and a driving range. Mountain improvements under his tenure include enhanced snowmaking and grooming capabilities, progression terrain parks, and additional trails and glades.
Mulcahy led the marketing effort in 1976 that established summer programming at Smugglers' and paved the way for the resort's current reputation as a preeminent year-round vacation destination for families. He also contributed to the successful transition of the resort's timeshare real estate assets to Wyndham Vacation Ownership in 2011.
Mulcahy has been an active member of the Vermont Ski Areas Association (VSAA), serving in the positions of chair and treasurer. He has also represented the resort as a member of the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) and was a member of NSAA's board of directors. In 2003, he won NSAA's Sherman Adams Award in recognition of his many positive contributions to the ski industry.

We're gonna miss ya Bob!
However it is bittersweet, because it will be the first time in 44 years that our longtime President Bob Mulcahy will not be working here - he retired at the end of October. The press release says "Mulcahy has played a key role in developing Smugglers' Notch into an award-winning and internationally recognized family vacation destination. I know that's true, but what I'm going to miss is that Boston accent cheerfully inquiring about what's going on, or telling me about the run he just took on Lower FIS, or getting 300 Smuggs employees excited for the upcoming season. You are quite a gent and an inspiration Robert F. Mulcahy - we're gonna miss ya!
P.S. He told me he'd be skiing here every Wednesday with the 55+ Club.
Ken Roberts the boot guru a.k.a. "Bert" modified my buckle so that it would work properly.
Bert has been boot fitting for many years and has tons of tricks up his sleeve to make your feet happy! I was testing out the buckle when Bert handed me my liner and said "try this". He had placed some padding on my liner where the modified buckle is. I tried my boot on and I was pleasantly surprised to feel my foot fit tighter in my old boots. He asked me if I wanted more lateral support.
The work Bert did made all the difference and I actually won this week!

Bob Mulcahy, president of Smugglers' Notch.
But Bob Mulcahy is the exception. In his 44-year term as president of Smugglers' Notch Resort, he has witnessed the resort's expansion and development from a small mountain with a handful of chairlifts and trails to an award-winning family resort, while still finding time to take a few runs himself.
Mulcahy's first day of work was Dec. 1, 1969, when he started as the controller at Massachusetts-based real estate developer Stanmar.
At that time, Mulcahy was the Chief Financial Officer, and set the priorities for the coming years.
"We knew we rapidly had to build more housing," he says. "Because it had an uphill capacity of about 3,000 skiers an hour and a village capacity of about 500, we knew we had to get a lot more housing in there and once we developed the housing we had to market it to get people to come both midweek and weekends."
With the development, came a push in marketing. The resort placed ads in the pages of the New York Times and promoted at local ski clubs. Mulcahy says it took three to four years for Smuggs to develop and market those developments to the point where they broke even - for the operation to take in just as much or more money than they were spending.
Smugglers' has also partnered with Club Wyndham, one of the largest timeshare developers in the world, to do the sales and marketing for real estate, a decision, Mulcahy says allows for development in other areas.
"It's been a fabulous partnership," he says, as they continue to develop the real estate and give us our share of the selling proceeds, then we've been able to reinvest on the mountain, particularly in snow making."
Since 1969, Mulcahy has seen the installation of three lifts and the addition of over 30 trails at the resort. 44 years is time enough to observe some of the larger trends in the industry. Today, with the exception a few small areas, Mulcahy says most resorts have some kind of year round housing at the base for summer and winter occupancy.
Today, Smugglers' attracts visitors from all over New England. Mulcahy says Smugglers' also attracts large groups of customers from Toronto and Florida as well. The trick, he says, is balancing the wants and needs of both local and visiting customers.
"We have a whole separate pricing concept for the local market to encourage them to come," he says. "We're moderately expensive for those that come and stay in the village and economical for those that live closer by - the Vermonter. We're very aggressive with our programs and the support from locals demonstrates that."
This year, Smugglers' Notch was awarded Number One Overall Resort in the East in a reader poll by Ski Magazine, a coveted rating previously held by Mont Tremblant, in Quebec.
Mulcahy says all credit is due to the employees.
"It's really them," he says. "They're the ones that are delivering the product.
Mulcahy will step down from his position by the end of the month but will continue to work as the principal broker for resale, a position that will free up his time for other commitments, like skiing with the 55-plus group on weekdays when the lift lines are shorter and the crowds are nowhere to be seen, but for now, he's headed back to school. Vermont residents 65 or older are eligible to audit one free course per semester at any state college and Mulcahy is taking a lecture course in international relations.
"You have all the fun of listening to the lecture and reading for the material and you don't have to study for the exam or study for the quizzes or do the papers - it's a win-win," he says.
