I was planning a trip with the wife to Utah, but due to certain circumstance, it looks like we might have to shorten our trip and head to the east coast.
I have never skied out east, and really don't know too much about the resorts out there. We'll be flying from Detroit and meeting some family from PA. What we are looking for is some good skiing, no double-blacks required, and a nice place to stay on the mountain. A rippin' party scene is not necessary, just a place to grab some good food, have some good local brews then head back to a hot tub is more our speed.
Ability level: Blue and black runs - I like to explore more than the wife, who seems to gravitate to the groomers.
I don't mind a bit of a drive (up to 3 hours), so would flying direct to Boston from DTW be the best way to access the resorts in NH and VT?
The trip will likely be a long weekend, i.e. fly out on a Thursday and leave Sunday (or Friday to Monday).
We're not a big fan of crowds, but realize that sometimes that can't be avoided, especially on weekends.
I'm open to suggestions since everything will be new for us out there. Appreciate the feedback!
