My husband and I wanted to try snowboarding and we are glad we choose Ski Butternut. From our arrival till we left the staff was very kind and helpful.

Lessons staff are Excellent. Food Staff stayed calm and efficient even with large crowds, Gift Shop helpful. Really Nice Family Experience.

When the conditions are good and the slopes aren't... More
