 Perhaps you don't get out much?  
Might want to check out the mask from Outeru (http://www.outeru.com/) - I've been using one for the last couple of seasons and really like it (no affiliation, just like the product).   Covers nose/cheeks and works well with a Buff or other neck gaiter - I really hate to ski with my mouth covered so this is a great solution.       Bill
Still available?
Might want to consider Bromley - can be lots of fun and doesn't get the Stratton crowds.   Bill
May want to consider a day over on Shawnee Peak - nice little mountain with some challenging runs and great views.  Perhaps 35-40 minutes down 302 from Attitash and still considered part of the Mt. Washington valley...   Bill

While I'll admit to being a lurker since joining, not sure it really matters who the skier is - I think the elements I pointed out are valid in terms of efficient skiing, regardless of nationality.   Bill
Big hop and some wicked pole drag... and should I mention the 'A' frame?  Rather ugly.
