The wife (novice skier) and I (fairly advanced skier) are planning our first trip to New England for sometime in early 2013. What is the best resort in terms of skiing and lodging options in Vermont or New Hampshire? We're accustomed to skking in the North Carolina mountains, so we'd really like some good conditions and short lift lines for a change. Plans are to check in on a Sunday and ski Monday-Thursday, leaving on a Friday. Wife likes wide easy slopes and trails, I like challenging blues and blacks. One main goal is to see my wife improve her skill and increase her confidence.
Your opinions and suggestions would be appreciated.
