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.
Thanks for the tip I picked it because it was small and less traffic so it would be less of a hassle to learn.
