Took the family skiing for the first time ever about a month ago and had a fantastic time. Got there right at opening. We were lucky there was no wait, because an hour later, the lines were out the door and down toward the parking lot. This is not to say there weren't enough staff - on the contrary -... More

Took two lessons over a weekend. One terrific instructor (Mark), another who seemed to be getting a little impatient with my slow progress. But overall a very enjoyable weekend, with several other staff who impressed me with their encouragement and attentiveness. Can't wait to go back.

You can't beat the value with a season pass at Ski Butternut. While this is not a Killington or even an Okemo, it doesn't pretend to be. Very family friendly. Excellent ski school and racing program. Great option for those in the metro NYC area.

Butternut is a cool little mountain. Usually after 2-3 hours there I get bored, but when I first started snowboarding there it was amazing, but once you go to larger mountain harder to go back to smaller ones. For the proximity to my weekend home it isn't to far, so I will continue to go. The best part about this... More

A great place for our 1st time snowboards to take a lesson and have ample time to practice on smaller slopes. We went in mid-March with temps getting into the low 40's so early morning was better conditions but overall not crowded and a great experience.

For someone who likes fast groomers, Butternut offers a number of trails that keep me entertained all day long. Great fall lines, great terrain and you can't beat the $25 lift ticket mid-week. It's fast becoming one of my favorites.

I ski at Butternut every chance I get and hold a season pass. It's a great, friendly place to ski with well groomed slopes and a wide variety of terrain. The base lodge is rustic and the food decent although the upper lodge is far nicer. Candidly, the lower lodge rest rooms are in bad need of updating but, other... More
