*Tubing is OPEN everyday over all our Holiday Periods (weather permitting).
Ski Butternut strives to open the mountain by the last weekend in Nov. or first weekend in December.
We shoot to remain open through the 1st and occasionally the 2nd weekend in April.
Understandably our opening, as well as our daily operation, is all weather dependent.
Please check our Snow Conditions Report for the latest information on opening day and hours as it is updated twice daily morning and night.
The Ski Areas key facilities (Lower Lodge, Rentals, Main Office, Ski Shop, Ski School Desk, Food Service) all open at least 1/2hr before lifts start to run. Occasionally we'll have a delayed start due to weather conditions beyond our control including: icing, high wind, an abundance of natural snow (YES - bring it) or treacherous road conditions that make it difficult for our employees to get to work.
TIP: Arrive early and enjoy a hearty breakfast in the Lower Lodge (my favorite is the Egg & Bacon Breakfast Sandwich on a Bagel), get your rental gear early so you don't have to contend with any line, buy your lift tickets at the Ski School desk in the Lower Lodge, get your skis or snowboard edges sharpened and have your skis or snowboard Hot Waxed for best performance, or enjoy browsing or shopping in the Butternut Ski & Snowboard Shop.
Arrive Early and avoid the usual 8:40 to 11:00 a.m. weekend rush.
