My family of 4 (boys 9 and 12) are thinking about spending some time right around Christmas (most likely the week between Christmas and New Year's) in Vermont (or somewhere in the Northeast) to do some skiing. And I am a bit overwhelmed! First of all, will the slopes be open then? We will be flying, probably into Burlington?? We would like to be an hour and half or less from the airport, if possible. We are all beginner skiers and would like a family friendly resort that has other activities other than skiing, as well as nice accommodations and a few restaurants to choose from on site. I'd appreciate any suggestions!
