So my family will be up in Vermont over Easter weekend, April 10-12. We're looking for a good place for skiing and snowboarding (particularly the latter) that weekend. We'll be starting out in Middlebury, leaving there Sat. morning to hit the slopes and then spending Sat. night closer to the slopes.
What we're looking for is something that has decent spring conditions, with a variety of trails open. Our family ranges from beginners up, so we'd want something that has some green trails in decent conditions, up through harder blues and easier blacks.
We're also seeking any good lodging deals for Sat. night, so any tips appreciated there, too.
Stowe is within an hour or so of Middlebury and has some decent lodging and lift ticket specials going. Unfortunately, Spruce will be closed by then so we'd be limited to Mansfield (which is fine for me but maybe not quite ideal for my 7-year old snowboarding son).
Any options out there better than Stowe for this kind of trip?
