Okemo would be perfect for them in my opinion, and there's enough to keep me occupied too.
I love Magic, but they're not even open yet, so it's hard to get a feel for the reliability of their blue/green trails two weeks out (I'm OK with natural snow only for a base, but like I said, I'm not the focus of the trip). I considered K-mart, but the lodging options weren't great during that week.
What - you're not core to the core??? Slacker. Skiing is all about being selfish.
Magic is in a battle with VDPS and the electric co again. They keep expecting to open, but not sure anything is resolved yet. A risky bet, but I'm sure the mountain is fighting for a pre-X-mas opening.
Enjoy wherever you go! Happy holidays!
