Durango, Vail or ???

We are planning a 4-5 day trip around the New Year's holiday with our two kids (boys, ages 5 and 12). The kids have never gone skiing, and my husband and I are novices. We would like to put the kids into a ski school/class of some sort for a day or two.. We live out of state and can either fly into Denver and drive to our destination or can fly directly into Durango. My question is which one would be better for a family of 4 who wants to do other things (snowmobiling, snowshoeing, etc) besides just ski the entire time? We love to walk around and eat at great restaurants, shop, etc... Of course, most of our time will be in the snow, but I am looking for a place that has some other things to do as well. I am a little worried about the higher-elevation places just for the kids mainly- I would hate them to get altitude sickness...

Any help from you guys would be appreciated!
