More Butternut Web-sightings

Jim Shay, an editor at the Connecticut Post and the curator of The Snow Zone blog, was here on Monday, which inspired him to write a feature about how awesome, uncrowded – and not to mention, inexpensive – weekday skiing can be.

And an anonymous commenter, who was here on Friday (JAN 7, 2011), had these nice words to share about their experience over on

With our kids finishing school early due to forecast snow, we headed to Butternut for the afternoon. It was lightly snowing when we arrived, and the snow continued though until closing time. The base lodge and the mountain were uncrowded, with no lines at the two lifts serving the main trails (Top Flite and Highline quads). My 6 year old headed to the beginner area and Paddy’s lift, and was thrilled to find that the operator on duty was Will. Will is a legend around the beginners area, and a real asset to the mountain. It was *NEVER* a problem to help get my son onto the chairlift. Will knows how to treat his customers right – I wish that other resorts had employees like him. Conditions were sweet. No icy spots, plenty of groomed man-made snow, and the natural stuff falling through the afternoon added maybe an inch and a half of extra to the surface. Definitely a good afternoon. At $25 for an adult ticket you can’t beat it for value skiing mid-week Monday to Friday!
