Skied Buttermilk and enjoyed it. They were preparing for X-Games so some areas were closed but very cool seeing the games area. Wonderful wide runs with a fun run that has some jumps and snow board play areas. Fun and highly recommend.

My boyfriend and I heard great things about the beginner magic package at Buttermilk Mountain. We are both native Floridians and have never been in a snow environment. From the start the instructors came off as confused and disoriented. They did not have a plan for their students and were very aggressive and hostile. They had very little pacience, and... More

Being from Florida we are on the total novice end of snow skiing. We took our grandchildren here for ski lessons and everyone went out of their way to be kind to them, be helpful to us, and make everyone feel like they were special. The kids did not want to leave and loved the people who had been working... More

This resort was great for a family as it had a lot of great easy trails and some harder trails as well. The views are terrific! Lunch was great up at the Cliffhouse! The chili was delicious. I encountered some horrible cramping in my calves on my last run down and was stuck half way down in horrible pain. Dennis... More

Buttermilk is full of good memories for us. It is where my daughters and I learned how to ski. As is true in all four mountains of Aspen, the service is phenomenal. Lift passes are extremely easy to arrange; the best equipment is quickly rented right on location; and the service and care on-mountain is spot on. Buttermilk is known... More

A lovely, non-crowded, mostly blues and greens resort. Right now - the conditions are terrific. One very obnoxious downside - depending on weather conditions - you can be sickened by the smell of jet fuel from the planes taking off from nearby Aspen Airport. This is particularly a problem during the 'VERY busy with private jets' holiday season. I know... More

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
