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.

I love the variety of runs there are! I’ve been coming to butternut since i was very little and i still have the same excitement every time! Most blacks are relatively easy and the terrain parks are nice. definitely recommend!

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.

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
