Is Beech or Sugar Mountain better for beginners?
I commonly recommend App Ski Mtn for beginners. Beech and Sugar have a wider range of slopes but you also get the skiers and snowboarders that are experienced and for a beginner might be slightly intimidating. I think App is best for kids too, very family friendly. They have the French Swiss Ski College which is great.
