Calling all locals to help me out! I was nominated to choose the perfect place where our families should meet for 2008 Xmas. Some come from NY and we're from TX. Since we are all driving, I figured these two cities were our best options to choose from, but I really have no idea what to expect. We want to ski(we are beginners), skate, and do all the winter activities to keep 8 children and 13 adults busy. We would like cultural activities and we love to go shopping. Should anyone have a better idea considering that the New Yorkers don't want to go too far south and we don't want to go too far north! Thank you all!
