Took my son (9) who had skied many times (advanced intermediate) and daughter (5) for the first time on Dec 27, 2009. Daughter took a 90 minute class while son and I cut the mountain up with some friends. Trails are fun. Even greens are enjoyable (some turns and differing grades). Blues are a good fun--Minuteman is nice and wide so you can avoid the newbies and crazies pretty easy. One black trail (Barret's?) was less steep than the blue but skinnier. That was fun.
Now, for the not so good part. In a 90 minutes class, my daughter learned to put on and remove skis and turn a little bit. She didn't know how to stop, or get on a lift (or even a magic carpet). Very disappointed in that beginners class. The beginners area is very small and crowded. Liberty has a huge learning area compared to Roundtop. Next time, I will pay for private classes at Liberty for my daughter.
Lift lines were very long but we expected that the week in between Christmas and New Years. Staff was pretty friendly.
