I have been to Butternut about four times; I live out-of-town. All times have been fun because this is a small, older ski area and relatively easy to navigate. Although I don't have small children, they do cater to families and newer skiers, in my...More

If you're looking for a good local ski area, not too far from NYC, Butternut is good for couples and families. It's easily accessible to lots of motels and inns. It has good trails.

Nice, fairly quaint. The kids' club/daycare is not conveniently located. Pleasant environment. No shuttle around parking lots.

While Butternut is a wonderful place for kids to learn to ski (mine had terrific experiences here), for the experienced skier the best that can be said is that it is not all that far from NYC or Boston, in a beautiful area. On holidays...More

Limited skiing terrain that can be crowded on the weekends. If you are in skiing in the Berkshires, you may want to check out a few other locations as well.
