Great ski resort for skiers of all levels, especially for beginners and intermediate skiers.
Dec 2020
My family of 5 came here on our last day at Aspen/Snowmass. We had skied at Snowmass and Aspen Mountain the last few days so we wanted to try out this smaller resort. My kids (all in their early 20's) and I are good skier and my wife is intermediate so we decided to go there so she will have more easier terrain.

There's only 3 main lifts but they are all plenty long enough. The Summit Express takes 9 minutes to reach the top so the runs are plenty long enough to get to the bottom.

We were pleasantly surprised that there were plenty of great runs with plenty of speed. Basically this resort offers great runs even for good skiers.

My wife really enjoyed this mountain a lot, as it offered more green runs than the other local ski resorts.

The view at the top is just spectacular, offering a breathtaking view of the Colorado Moutains.

We had lunch at the Cliffhouse and the food was very good. Prices were decent compared to the other ski resorts.

Great Event Location & Very Beautiful
Jan 2020
We went to Buttermilk Mountain for the X-Games. Buttermilk Mountain is easily accessible whether you are staying in Snowmass or in Aspen. While we did not ski, the weather was incredible here for January. The snow was well groomed, the staff friendly, and facilities well-kept. The view from this mountain is incredible! Would definitely attend the X-Games again, or ski here at Buttermilk!

Buttermilk is super for first timers with a short slope to cut your teeth on and then a super green run to progress to. Efficient friendly staff.

Great place to learn to ski!
Feb 2020
We highly recommend Buttermilk as a great place to learn to ski. Snowmass also offers a bit larger bunny hill to practice on as you get your feet under you. Love both!

Excellent place for beginners
Feb 2020
My husband and I visited Buttermilk a few weeks ago. We were very happy throughout our stay. We took 3 full-day lessons with the Aspen Snowmass Ski School and our instructors were great. Very professional and friendly. I had no skiing experience prior to this trip and now I am able to ski on the green zone. We stayed in Aspen Village, there was free transportation every 15 minutes offered. It was very convenient. This place is great for families, too. Next year we will be bringing our 6 year old son as well. There are different programs for every level and they do a good job of placing at the right level. We rented our equipment. It was quite hassle-free.

You Will Love It
Dec 2019 • Couples
It was our first time in Aspen and we chose Buttermilk out of the 4 mountains there for its reputation of being most suitable for beginners/intermediates. We were impressed! Of course depending on what season one goes, we did not experience over-crowding in mid-December. On some slopes we barely saw anyone else. Staff were friendly and the mountain is gorgeous. It is in my opinion way better than Whistler. Love to go back one day. And if you're on the fence, it hosts X Games, how about that?

Awesome snowboarding
Jan 2020 • Family
Come here every year for the X-Games at Buttermilk, and snowboard the four primary resorts here in Aspen. Buttermilk is probably the easiest of the four, with the most ‘beginner’ and lots of intermediate runs. It has some park riding too. Great place to come ride, and if you’re here in late January - to watch the X-Games right in front of you on the slopes.

Four Mountain Sports
Dec 2019
We've never done any kind of snow sports before so we thought Buttermilk would be a great place to learn. We took the first timer lessons for both snowboarding and skiing. Our snowboard instructor was Steph from Florida and our ski instructor was Browsyn from Australia. Both of them were fantastic. Super patient with adult beginners. Without them I think it could have been a miserable experience. Overall our experience with four mountain sports was good. Though we did not like that once you took the beginner lessons you then had to buy the lesson, ski lift pass, and rentals all separate. It was just a way to up charge. We figured there would be some kind of package deal. None of the staff seemed to understand why this was frustrating and a big deal since it ended up being twice the price of the first time lessons. We could not afford that, so we attempted the mountain on our own after the first time lessons. It went well, but we would have preferred at least one more day of lessons.
