I'm not the best skier. Earlier in the week my family left me sunbathing and drinking wine at the top of Aspen Mountain while they skied. But later in the week it was my turn. We went skiing for the first time at Buttermilk. Definitely my speed and what a fun mountain to ski on. We showed up for a... More

Buttermilk is the perfect mountain for begginers. My wife was afraid to learn, but the conditions os the mountains, with gradual increasing dificulty of the slopes, made it possible. But it's not only that. Intermediate and advanced riders and skiers also find a lot of intermediate and expert terrain and a great free style park with huge pipes and bowls.... More

Mountain has slopes for all skill levels, great location to get in and out easy. The ski patrol and all workers here are out of this world friendly. You can tell they are passionate about what they do.

We hit Buttermilk on a great sunny day and were with a ski guide who is a friend of ours and he lives there, so he took us everywhere we wanted to go. If you can afford a guide, it's worth it...he's our friend, so it was free, but I had never even heard of a ski guide! His name... More

First visit - loved the uncrowded runs, very few people, great resort for a beginner or intermediate skier or boarder. Not a lot to challenge an expert skier/rider, but with fresh snow, plenty to have fun on. Good food at the main restaurant at the top of the summit chair.

My boys and I skiied here just after Christmas, and they loved it. The terrain is some of the simplest to navigate. There is always a bail out with a groomed area off any chairlift. Parking is free, but the lots fill up quickly. There is not a lot of technological advancements here. It is pretty much old style skiing.... More

Our dream trip to USA came to a final stop in Aspen. How could anyone in Aspen contemplate not skiing..... We did at first. Once you get into this fantasy land of snow, skiing or snowboarding is a given. Your age is meaningless. All you need is an attitude to get active and try anything as we did. On watching... More

My wife is an intermediate skier. She will ski nowhere else and loves the mountain. I am an aging expert, former ski patroller, that has skied many double blacks over the years. I am turning into a cruiser and now also love Buttermilk. The runs are well groomed, restaurant at the top has many healthy options, the staff very friendly... More
