SKI BUTTERNUT IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS!

And by business, I mean fun!

So, it’s a little later than we’d all like. And, yes, winter hasn’t decided to start yet. Ok, last night we had a little snow of the clear variety (referred to as “rain” in some parts of the country).

BUT TODAY WE ARE OPEN! And that’s all that really matters.

We’re running the Highline Quad, Paddy’s double, and some magic carpets. And we’re skiing on the bunny hill, Main Street, Nuthatch, Chute, Crosstown, Hob Nob, and Lower Applejack.

AND WE’RE HAVING A WICKED GOOD TIME.

The snow is a fast machine-groomed granular, great for carving perfectly arced turns.

The temperature is hovering around a balmy 40 degrees (no cold fingers and toes).

The mini terrain park on Chute is hoppin’.

And the hot chocolate is both wonderfully hot and superbly chocolatey.

AND ADULT FULL-DAY LIFT TICKETS ARE JUST $25 TODAY AND $35 THIS WEEKEND.

Our learn-to-ski-or-snowboard package for first-timers, including lift ticket, lesson, and rentals, is only $25 between now and December 23.

When the cold comes back this weekend, we’re looking forward to turning back on the snow guns, getting more snow on the trails we’ve already got open and introducing new trails as quickly as we can.

I ran into one family today that came SOUTH from New Hampshire to ski here, because their local hill hasn’t been able to open yet. (We’re sending the good vibes, and a cold wind, up to our friends at Pat’s Peak in the hopes that they get their season started ASAP).

Though some of you made the odd choice to go to work today, we hope you’ll join us on the mountain tomorrow. We can’t wait to say “Welcome Back” to everyone.
