Learned how to ski in February at Buttermilk Mountain. This area is perfect for beginners and kiddos. The staff is great and very patient! This is the cheapest area to ski in about $100 for lift ticket, ski rental, etc. Couldn't ask more!

Great little mountain and good for beginners with excellent snow park for those who like stunt skiing. Well served by buses from Aspen town with lovely wide open runs

Great mountain for beginners and intermediates. Loved the complimentary coffee and hot chocolate stations which were dotted over the mountain. Not too crowded or busy. Food options limited.

This is a nice ski area for those who are just learning to ski or for families with smaller children. If you have any skiing ability whatsoever, skip this mountain and go elsewhere - it is lovely but I regret spending my money here instead of nearby Snowmass, which has significantly more terrain (I was with a beginner). Overpriced food... More

My daughter tried snowboarding for the first time here. The trails are great for beginners, and intermediate skiers and snowboarders, and the instructors are very patient and cool. April is not a good month to go there, the snow is simply gone!! Global warming is real, so ski while you can.

Beautiful place for my husband and I to try our hand at skiing for the first time. We loved it! We took classes from Four Mountain and the instructor we had was super sweet and really patient (good thing). The beauty of this place was amazing. I loved seeing all the little kiddos skiing...so super cute! We had a good... More

This mountain provides so many things for everyone. It is perfect for small children learning how to ski with many child-friendly locations like the Hide Out. Panda peak and West buttermilk are the perfect place for beginners to go. The Tiehack side of the mountain provides wonderful runs for experts, like Racers Edge where many races take place. If you...

We love coming to Buttermilk! I learned how to ski here many years ago (Yeah Powder Pandas!) Everyone in our travel group likes to come to this ski area because it has a little bit for everyone. We have some new skiers and some very seasoned skiers with us so this is a great place to be "together", but stick... More

This is a slower paced mountain for beginners and intermediate skiers. Advanced skiers are better off on any other mountain in the area.
