The Mountain I learned to Ski on.

I have snowboarded for more than half my life. There is little progression for me to do on a snowboard left. So I decided to give skiing a try. I signed up for a lesson at... read more

The Lesson was bit slower to progress than I had hoped. It really was a very BASIC lesson and mid day I... More

Great beginner mountain! Lovely, long, green runs down the mountain! The blues on the mountain were also manageable to beginner skiers as well!

Nice introductory slopes for novice to expert skiers. Can get busy at times but the on-site ski school have an excellent "snow-magic" package that includes equipment hire and lessons. Clifftop restaurant has a surprisingly tasty range of options with an international flare.

This mountain was right out our "back door" while staying at the Inn at Aspen---green & lovely in the summer, with abundant wildlife & trails to hike.

I learned to ski on Buttermilk Mountain 43 years ago and then learned to snowboard there 23 years ago! A great family friendly mountain.

Buttermilk is a great mountain with lots of wide, virtually empty, terrain for recreational skiing. Just need to watch out for true beginners who are skiing without instructors!
