Buttermilk Mountain
About Buttermilk Mountain

Buttermilk Mountain is one of the four Aspen Resorts and has long been a popular destination for families and beginners. Recently, Buttermilk has become famous for hosting the Winter X Games each year.

There are plenty of wide open, rolling groomers at Buttermilk. Park-riders will find plenty of natural features to jib off, as well as a couple of freestyle terrain parks.

Greens and blues make up the majority of Buttermilk's 470 acres. Some blacks exists, but there is no expert terrain available (double-blacks).

There is no downtown Buttermilk or fancy mountain village, but  there are some lodging and dining options available at the resort. On the mountain, near the scenic summit, is a restaurant called Cliff House. Down at the base is the larger Bumps Restaurant and the Inn at Aspen.

Nearby, Aspen has way more accommodations and is a free shuttle-ride away.

Reasons to Go:
Winter X Games in January through 2012; Fun mountain for freestyle skiing/riding.
