I liked the setups of the village-based, walk-to the lifts, walk to dinner convenience - or should I say, my family would like that too. Ski-in/out is a non-starter, both for price and interest. We eat out when skiing - that's our rule, nice places, but not to break the bank. So you see, this has to be a "step up" from the ski bummin' I've been used to. If they want to sleep late or quit early , it would be no problem. I liked some of the places like Vail and Squaw that had their beginners up top - they could enjoy the scenery, get a little loungin in and we could still meet for lunch. A little evening entertainment that would be OK with teens might be a possibility. No interest in a Disney-experience if you catch my drift. They also don't like a long trip - so closer to the airport the better. Again, this isn't for me!
Any places come to mind? I'm afraid you'll say "most anywhere" as I know you can make this work anywhere - looking for places people have been to, and some specifics, rather than reading through web pages of marketing collateral.
