Downhill Skiing & Snowboarding
Buttermilk Ski Resort
Home of the 2003 ESPN Winter X Games and the world's longest terrain park, Crazy T'rain. Don't let that fool you, though. It's still one of the world's best places to learn, improve and just cruise.
Buttermilk is known for being one of the best learning/teaching mountains in the world.
Powder stashes on black-diamond runs and gladed trails days after a storm; terrain park and halfpipe for advanced snowboarders plus a smaller teaching park for those just learning.
