“Great skiing and not crowded”
Review of Ski Butternut

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.

We live in Connecticut, have a house at Mt. Snow and frequently ski out west. Typically for a local ski day we go to Mohawk Mountain as it is the best in Connecticut. We decided to try Butternut for a change and since it was only 20 minutes further than Mohawk.

After this trip we won’t bother to ski Mohawk again. The terrain was better, the runs longer and it costs less. The only criticism is that their blacks are the new green. Not a hard place on the mountain. Great for cruisers.

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 to start in the middle of the mountain, and as it gets busier work my way to the side trails which have shorter lifts, but you can get more runs in. This is a very family oriented place and sometimes there are just too many kids....but if you are a parent, this is where you want to take your family. The upper lodge has a place to buy beer/wine and alcohol laced hot cider and chocolate...but no official bar.

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.
