I was going to head to a smallish place, for those that live in CT I was thinking Mt. Southington.

I also wanted to say for the boots I was looking at the 32 BOA boots, they had a pretty good fit and the BOA system was easy, I did not get around to trying a few others on, I haven't made up my mind on bindings yet, any suggestions?
Mt Southington is EXTREMELY small. I'm talking 25-30 seconds MAX if I'm bombing. That being said it was never busy the few times I went last season and would be relatively easy to learn on. I know you're new, but DO NOT try to ride the greens at Southington initially. They are very flat and you will have a tough time learning. The middle blue run is very mild and is where I would learn. It is much easier with a little bit of pitch.
