Ski Areas > US Rocky Mountains > Buttermilk, Colorado




  This is where I learned to ski as a kid. I've been coming back every winter. Says Joann.

Buttermilk has a drop from top to bottom of 2,030 feet which is phenomenal. This is a more petite than average ski hill with a medium elevation difference if compared to other US Rockies ski resorts. This ski area has 7 different ski lifts, and they are exciting to catch a ride with. Buttermilk gets snowfall close to the local average each season. With a sum of
    41 ski slopes to ski on; it's a wonderful array. The ski trail map of Buttermilk on this internet page unsurprisingly says a thousand words. This ski hill has a much lower than average ratio of hard runs and a much higher than average
percentage of green and blue runs. Some exercise and spending some quality time in nature will have you returning for more. There's 429 acres of skiable terrain, and it's all blanketed by great snow. Buttermilk is a family friendly ski area with loads of intermediate or beginner ski runs. The mind-blowing seasonal snowfall of 17 feet is one of the reasons this is such a great ski area. This ski resort has an acceptable assortment of runs and a decent number  
of good ski lifts. The pretty vista of the Colorado peaks and excellent ski runs make the spree here worthwhile. The Colorado hills during snow season are something you canít miss if by chance you're hooked on skiing and snowboarding. This is a delightful ski area with a lot of different ski runs; it's not possible to get bored here. Snowboarding and skiing in this part of Colorado is a lot of fun all season long. There are many rooms here if you want to stay an extra day, but do reserve a room prior to departure in view of the fact that it is a very popular destination.
