Ski resort in late Dec/early Jan for a family of 5

hi, just want your advice... Im going to NYC on late december and then go to Vermont for some days of ski.... I just want to know which place, town or resort is the best one for a family of 5.... it has to be at walking distance to the ski area, and in some-way cheap.... we are looking for a villa, with at least 2 bedrooms, a fireplace in the living room, a kitchen and 2 bathrooms....... please advices in any way will be very helpful... the ski resort must be anywhere across the state, preferred near an Amtrak train station or with shuttles provided by the hotel.... thanks a lot!

For inexpensive and value, go with Burke Mountain Resort. They have condos right on the slopes so you can stay right there. It's much less expensive than Stowe or Killington. The mountain isn't as challenging, so if you are an expert skier, you might not like it as much. But if you are an average skier, it will be a great for you.

It isn't close to an Amtrack station ... you'd almost have to rent a car.

There isn't much in Vermont that you can get to via public transportation!
