I am heading over to the area to visit friends for Presidents' day weekend. They live in the Nashua area, and we were hoping to get out skiing for a couple of days over the week-end. It has to be within day-trip driving distance, they need to keep home base because of a small baby. Any suggestions? Of the places close-by it kinda looks like Pats Peak might be the best option, but I know nothing about the resorts in the area, and they are new to that region too. Anyone who lives or visits there often able to offer any advice?
I'm a progressing intermediate, my two friends are advanced skiers and we are also bringing along an absolute newbie who will need to take a lesson, so it has to be something with a variety of levels.
