Home of the ESPN Winter X Games for more than a decade, and voted #1 by Transworld Snowboarding Magazine Reader's Poll for best pipe and park, Buttermilk built its 60-year legacy on wide-open and gently rolling trails that cater to beginners and families. While experts frolic in the terrain park, the rest of the family can cruise on the wide, rolling trails. Perfectly groomed slopes, gentle powder and glades, combined with a great ski/snowboard school and a 22-foot superpipe in the legendary terrain park, make Buttermilk a secret gem.

For a true ski-in/ski-out experience at Buttermilk, reserve a room at The Inn at Aspen Hotel. Ski in to The Inn at Aspen Hotel, located at the base of Aspen's Buttermilk Ski Area, Aspen's most family friendly of the four ski areas, with a larger percentage of beginner runs and the base for the Aspen Skiing Company's Ski School. This Aspen hotel is just two miles from the vitality of downtown Aspen and five miles from Snowmass Village.
