A great place to learn to ski

I learned to ski on Buttermilk Mountain 43 years ago and then learned to snowboard there 23 years ago! A great family friendly mountain.

Buttermilk is a great mountain with lots of wide, virtually empty, terrain for recreational skiing. Just need to watch out for true beginners who are skiing without instructors! Not a challenge for experienced skiers who prefer Highlands or Ajax. The mountain has wonderfully convenient accessibility by car or bus, and there are absolutely NO lines anywhere on the mountain. Amazing... More

This was our first visit to Buttermilk and we really enjoyed it. The mountain is perfect for ski /snowboard begginers. Since my husband and I were new at snowboarding, we liked the fact that it wasn´t crowed like snowmass, and so you felt more relaxed, and had definitely more space to practice without worrying about colliding with another person by...

I took a beginners ski class here and my boyfriend took a beginners snowboarding class. We had a great time and got a lot out of our lessons. Since it was the end of the season, our classes were super small (1-2 people). My instructor was wonderful. He was very patient and persistent. He made sure I got the most... More

This was my second visit to Buttermilk mountain, this time for the X Games. Although the mountain is uniquely qualified to host the 'Games, its apparent that the event will eventually need to expand due to crowds and popularity...a good thing.

The View is incredible, you can take your children with you.. And I did see skiing lessons for little tikes as well... The food cost is a bit pricy, for two of us it was about 45 for a simple lunch, not a buffet, cafateria style. The right up on the mountain is $30.00 per person good for any mountain... More

I attended a group lesson here. My instructor was terrible and very rude. I didn't learn very much at all from him. He seemed very annoyed when I asked him for help on slowing myself down. After speaking with management, I was placed with a very sweet instructor. She was a great instructor, but I was tired and frustrated from... More
