  • While Butternut is a wonderful place for kids to learn to ski (mine had terrific experiences here), for the experienced skier the best that can be said is that it is not all that far from NYC or Bosto...  more »
  • Overall, I would rate this ski place average at best. I brought my girlfriend and her 4 year old son and we learned quite a bit from our experience. First, be very careful on the drive up there, there...  more »
  • Limited skiing terrain that can be crowded on the weekends. If you are in skiing in the Berkshires, you may want to check out a few other locations as well.  more »

  • Went skiing for the first time here, the boots were really really heavy, the instructors were nice gave helpful tips and have a lot of fun for a very good price.
  • One of my favorite ski resorts! It's small but never crowded when we go on a weekday. The runs are not long, but they are interesting: wooded, winding and a little narrow (in a good way.) Lifts are a little slow, but we have never waited in line. And, best of all the weekday price is fantastic. I can't wait until my daughters can join my wife and I; the place a has a great family vibe.
  • Fantastic. I go there all the time. GREAT mountain for beginners, and the service and kindness of the employees is top notch. Highly Recommended.
  • The location is very good, a few minutes from the highway. Price on weekdays is awesome. However, not the best place if you are a begginer. The learning area is small, and yot next step after that is crosstown and cruiser. Crosstown is reallly nice, but to get back to the base, you need to go through cruiser which doesn't really feel like a begginer green. So, if its your first or second time skiing, you will be stuck all day in the begginer slope... Also, although there are signs for "Slow Ski zone, go fast = loose your pass" in red piper, people go down flying by you... not very pleasant if If you are a begginer trying to zig zag your way down... Overall, nice place with good price. Will probably go back when I'm not a beginner anymore.
  • I don't know anything about skiing so IDK if the skiing was good or bad. I DO know about nice people and WOW, this place is top notch. I never write revies but feel so strongly I have been looking forward to getting back to service so I could write this one. Jess in Ski School reservations, Theresa in the rental shop and Harold in lessons were FANtastic. Truth be told as a 36 year old not atheletic first time skier, I was awful, (no, really) but the people were so kind and encouraging I kept going until they closed. My 4yo daughter had a great time at ski school. I am pretty hands on but after observing for about 30 mins I felt totally safe leaving her in the hands of her 2 ski instuctors for r kids! She had a great time. Being from Texas, it isnt exactly an easy trip, but I cant imagine going anywhere else!
