  • If you're looking for a good local ski area, not too far from NYC, Butternut is good for couples and families. It's easily accessible to lots of motels and inns. It has good trails.  more »

  • Nice sized mountain if your not trying to go further up north. Cheaper rates too. Friendly staff and great guys helping at the lifts. Love this little spot
  • Myself and a group of friends just returned from a Sunday trip to ski butternut. Not only was this an amazing mountain for any level ski/snowboarder, but the staff was incredible. In days like today, if you loose a wallet or anything of value, it's very rare to find loyal people that will do the right thing and return the property. I lost my wallet somewhere at the resort and I went to the ski patrol office where my property was returned and given back with no hassle at all. Mark the ski patrol liaison was more than accommodating and Jennifer in the office was extremely friendly and helpful. It's people like those employees that give your resort a great name and a reason for me to keep coming back.
  • It is a really nice venue for festivals and concerts in the summer months. Wide open, scenic spaces.
  • Small family friendly mountain. Went w friends on a holiday week and it wasn't as crowded as Windham etc. Snow was particularly bad due to warm weather, I don't think small resorts like this can handle snowmaking like the larger mountains can. I asked for a refund and they granted my request. My child continued to ski, he had fun. I can ski in slush and grass. There's a town just down the road for dining and shopping. A pleasant way to spend the day.
  • Went here on a Thursday morning - nicely groomed trails (all open BTW on 2/16/17), no waiting in lift lines. Yeah, it's a smaller mountain, but for $25 you can't beat it. Good variety of trails - nothing too extreme, but some semi-challenging runs can be found. My only gripe is that the lifts are kinda slow, but all good otherwise.
