Default Resort Recommendation Required...

I have a few friends in New York who want to start boarding next year. Usually I go to European resorts (I live in UK) with a group of friends, but as my NY buddies want to get involved, we are looking to make next year's trip a USA/Canada one. I would like recommendations for a resort that fits the bill with the following criteria:

1) Got to be East Coast - friends are going to drive from NY
2) Suitable for the beginners that are coming
3) Decent-sized area for the rest of us, with a good park
4) Good night-life - haven't seen the NY guys for ages so going to want to hit the town a few nights!

That's about it really - not bothered about doing much backcountry / off piste.

Given your "wish" list, I would suggest Killington. Others may say no way, but hear me out.

1. East Coast; Easy drive from NY, Check

2. Beginner Terrain; lots, Check

3. Decent Size; Killington is HUGE, Check

4. Park; The Stash, need I say more, Check

5. Night life: Lots to choose from. Check

If you can do your trip late week into the weekend, you will have a super trip.
