I've been debating taking the oldest kid (12) on a ski trip somewhere either this year or next, depending on money, his attitude and how well he progresses with his skiing. I've been to Attitash, Sugarloaf and Marble Mountain as far bigger east coast hills. I'm wondering if there's one that someone might recommend more than others.
He's been skiing for 3 years now but has only seen our monster 600' vertical local hill. He has come along nicely though considering he's only been out a total of 5 times.
Im from NH maybe look at Cranmore which is relatively close to Attitash. Mount Sunapee is a super fun mountain to ski and Im pure park, in VT theres Mount Snow which is pretty good for all around skiing. Just search around theres plenty of good options.
Just make sure hes careful going through the terrain parks..... :)
Terrain of all difficulties and if you really think he can handle it you can take him down White Heat. (Don't recommend it if he has only been 5 times haha). There is so much terrain you will have no problem having him branch away from greens and easy blues to harder blues and easy blacks
