    I just changed my daily skis for similar reasons. These days I spend a lot of time skiing with the wife and teaching less experienced skiers so a long/beefy ski was a pain on a daily basis. Last...

    I don't think you want Zermatt based on your criteria. To me Zermatt is for: 1) romantic gateway (I was there on part of our honeymoon), 2) foodies (truly spectacular places to eat including charming...

    Peak Pass is still a great deal. Early season at Mt Snow and Late Season at Wildcat are awesome and crowds aren't an issue. Crotched mid-season is uncrowded.

    Ikon, even the Base pass gives you 30...

    The mountain dev programs at Crotched are great. For us, it was a very convenient location (75 minutes from MA), easy parking, small family hill feel.

    We liked Le Massif better than Mt. St. Anne when we visited and snow was better. We stayed in a great place about 20 minutes from the hill (there are no hotels at Le Massif) in Baie St Paul called Le...

    Summit Ski Shop in Framingham, MA have good boot fitters and people seem to like Boston Ski & Tennis in Newton, MA, but I don't have firsthand experience there.

    We've bought Peak Pass for three seasons now and have not been attracted to any of the other options. For us, Peak Pass is perfect. Early season access to Mt. Snow, easy 80 minute in-season access to...

    Our family was in the same boat a few years back. Nashoba was not a great value. We switched to Granite Gorge in Keene, NH. An easy drive. Small mountain, but with some more challenging trails than...

    Peak pass is great for our family in MA as it provides a very extended season. With Mt Snow being an earlier opener and Wildcat a late closer, you get 5 1/2-6 month pass.
