Full review

Butternut is a good mountain for beginners. It's not a big mountain and intermediate skiers can get bored quickly. The lift at the base gets VERY crowded and is not managed well by workers. How hard is it to create a line that alternates ?? If you stay to the right side of the mountain it is much less crowded on the mountain and at the lift nearest the upper lodge.
