The resort is about a 4-hour drive away from Boston. If you want to take the little ones to a place with an authentic village feel, take them to Sugarloaf. The family vacation will also include movie and game nights, sleigh rides, hardly any crowds, and a lot of easy terrain for beginners. If the kids get tired of skiing they can go to AGC to try Maine's largest indoor rock climbing wall, trampolines, basketball/volleyball courts, and indoor skate park.
