Hi, I was hoping for a little guidance on planning my first family ski trip. We will be going midweek the first week of January and are currently deciding between Northstar or Squaw. The main purpose of this trip is to introduce our 3 year old (one month shy of being 4) to skiing and the snow. Therefore the quality of the ski school is the biggest concern. Other people going on the trip is my wife (intermediate skier), myself (intermediate skier), 2 year old daughter and grandma. The daughter and grandma plan to just hang around the village while my son is in ski school. My wife and I plan to ski on our own and hopefully by the last day can do some runs (currently planning to ski 3 days and maybe have a 4th day for tubing, playing in snow, etc.).
Comparing Squaw to Northstar it seems Northstar is considerably more expensive than Squaw to stay walking distance to the ski school, village center, etc. While not the deciding factor obviously cheaper is always better.
Anyways based on the above information is there a resort you would recommend over the other?
