Butternut is a family-friendly ski area that has somewhat limited terrain, but it is a good value for someone bringing their whole family, or who want to learn to ski. The lifts are in good working order, but they are old and slow, so it...More

Good place to go to meet up with friends. It’s cool to have a ski place so close nearby. The park is good, the rails and box’s are good. The place is not too big but a good place to go for a fun trip....More

this is a wonderful ski hill for older skiers and those who don't want to dump tons of money into a ski day. LIft ticket was only $20.00 for an adult weekday.

Great for young kids and beginners, 5 chair lifts and multiple runs make a great 4-day ski vacay for the intermediate skier. Easy nursery runs and an amazing ski school mean beginners can learn at their own pace. Really amazing staff. A new ski fave.

I have been skiing here for decades. It has always been a "friendly" mountain. I do recommend getting out when they open. Being a mid-size mountain, it does tend to get pretty crowded on the more popular trails (coming down from the summit).. I like...More

Great family friendly ski area. Staff are always helpful and fun. Very safety oriented and maintain slopes well. Runs for a small area are excellent and varied for all levels. Ski instruction is very professional, I took a lesson and was able to improve significantly.

We flew into JFK from London specifically for the skiing at Butternut! The staff were amazing, so patient, friendly and willing to go out of their way to help. My wife and daughter were total newcomers to skiing and took advantage of the daily lessons...More

Beer and wine available in the upper lodge which is only open on weekends and holidays. It's a cafeteria, not a bar, though

Snow tubing is available in a separate Tubing Area from the ski slopes (meaning you can't conveniently ski in or out of the snow tubing area). It features a "magic carpet" conveyor up a single hill which seems pretty small... More
