Another thought is fly into Asheville, NC and drive to Sugar, Beech or Cataloochee. Most of the southern ski slopes have ski in/ out cabins. Very beginner skier oriented and southern hospitality. Last time I went to Cataloochee I visited the Wheels through time motorcycle museum right near the ski slope. That place was amazing. Had a fill of my two favorite sports in one day.
Skiing NC is fun but if you're flying, I wouldn't even consider NC. The skiing is just so much better in the New England and the West.
