Opening day for Buttermilk. Not crowded at all. Felt like we had the place to ourselves. Huge open runs, super soft snow. Loved the right side of the hill. One of my favorite places to go. The staff is incredible. So helpful and nice. Easy lifts to get on and off of. Amazing views. Just cant say enough good about... More

We visited here a couple ski seasons ago and it was a great place for my kids to learn how to ski. Super kid friendly, very laid back, lots of blues and greens, not a lot of intimidating expert skiers buzzing around you. I would highly recommend for families with younger kids or new skiers.

There are four ski mountains in Aspen, and Buttermilk is the easiest. It is a great place for beginners to practice their skiing on uncrowded slopes. It is also a fun mountain for all.

If you are a seasoned pro, go to Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands or Snowmass. But if you have the fam in tow, bring them to Buttermilk. A great place to lean how to ski with plenty of thrills and views. Easy parking, easy bus routes and stress free. The lodge has a really great selection of salads and stir fry... More

If you want to prove how macho you are on your skis you should avoid this mountain! If you want to run up and down the mountain until your legs scream "No More", ski untracked powder most of the day after a storm, never have a lift line, have the beautifully groomed slopes mostly to yourself (especially the Tiehack side),...

We love to ski Buttermilk with our kids - it is just right! Ski classes for the kids are great and they have a good variety of easy and hard hills.

I am an intermediate snowboarder so Buttermilk was a great place to go on our first day as a warm-up. Other than that the easy runs got boring very fast and the black double diamond runs were way beyond my ability! Great facilities and fabulous starting point for our holiday.

Enjoyed our 1st time hear but we chose to snowboard. I injured my tailbone on the first day so I wasn't able to enjoy like my husband and daughters did one the second day. They became pros after just a few hours, I'm opting for skiing this year. I just couldn't get off the gondola or stop without falling, took... More

Before coming to this mountain, we really underestimated it. My brother even said, "you want to ski on a mountain called buttermilk?" Riding the lift up, we realized how beautiful this place was, and the terrain was actually pretty good. Lots of blues and greens, and gentle blacks. If you have a powder day like we did, prepare for a... More

Out of the four mountains of Aspen, Buttermilk is my favourite. Don't be fooled by her gentle name, some of the runs have a bite. It's the home of the XGames - but the reason I like it is for its array of green and blue runs. A beautiful mountain for average skiers. Lots of space. Great scenery. Good dining... More
