Terrific place to ski with a variety of difficulty levels. 3 main lifts, rentals and lessons on site, several convenient places to stop for a bite to eat too.

I enjoy skiing Buttermilk. It is a beautiful setting and on days where you don't want to push yourself too much, there is a really wide variety of green and blue terrain. It's a good confidence-building mountain. :)
