Ski Butternut strives to open the Ski Area the day after Thanksgiving.
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.
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 like 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 without worrying about a 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, or enjoy some shopping in the Butternut Ski & Snowboard Shop.
Arrive Early and avoid the usual 8:40 to 11:00 a.m. weekend rush.
4-Hour Flex Pass: This is a lift ticket option that lets you purchase a 4-hour block of time to ski or snowboard at a modest discount. Your lift ticket is stamped with the time of purchase and allows you to ski or ride for 4-hours. Great for when you can only get here for a morning, or for those who arrive late and can only get a few hours of time in on the slopes.
