Butternut has good grooming and snowmaking, but who cares when there are bad slopes? Butternut has to many intermediate and novice slopes. Even these aren't fun because there are 10,000 people on them so you can't really enjoy them and you have to ski at 1 MPH without crashing into them. They have a few black diamonds, but these are INCREDIBY short and would be greens out west. Did I mention this place is crowded? Don't bother, it's not worth the drive. Go to a place like the Cat without the crowds and with real trails.
