Pros: Great weather, snow when others have ice or rain, short lift lines
Cons: Not the most challenging slopes
Bretton Woods is where my family began skiing together. It is a great place to learn and to practice things. Others have mentioned the glades. I'm not much for hurtling around in the trees but even I've been in the glades a little bit in BW. We've been there quite a few times and have never had bad conditions or stood in lift lines for more than 5 or 6 minutes, and mostly not at all. Unfortunately is has been a few years since we've managed to get up there so I haven't seen the expansion. They have, or had, a very good adaptive program for which we did the fundraising event a couple times. It was a hoot!
The place is very friendly and draws an oddly international gang. We've met may people from England there. No idea why other than that they find it more friendly than European skiing.
Finding nice and affordable lodging is easy - tons of rentals in the area if you don't mind staying 20 or 30 minutes away from the mountain. The area is a VERY popular summer sports area (and winter ski area).
