    Madonna wasn’t the original name. Tom Watson Jr. changed the original name to Madonna when he and his brother bought the area. After the Watsons sold the area the new owners changed the name to Smugglers Notch.

    Smugglers Notch Ski Ways!

  5. Tim Treadwell says:

    Wasn’t it the Jeffersonville Ski Ways. That was before I had a season pass at Madonna when I was three years old!

    Since I only get the Reporter a week or so later than the locals, it’s tough getting the first correct answer to you. Ski area was named ” Madonna” Perhaps there should be a category with responses coming from locals and those from a distance like me. Perhaps a one week time delay in responses. I love your column. Enjoyable reading! Keep up the good work!
