Quaint old-timey ski resort
Crowds, confusing layout, chaotic liftlines

Full review

Butternut was clearly built in the 70s or earlier. Its vintage ski lodges and meandering beginner trail have a charming throwback quality. The downside is the resort was built for about 1/4 of the volume of skiers it actually sees. I went on a weekday during the holiday season and the liftlines stretched out all over the place. Line-cutting was rampant. The narrower trails quickly became packed and unsafe. The trails themselves were decent for a small resort, though snowboarders beware: there are tons of flat spots. Also for a first-timer I could not figure out where to go to change into my boots. The bigger lodge requires a hike uphill, and there are no stairs. There's a smaller lodge with a cafeteria at the base that I believe is labeled "ski shop" or something equally unhelpful.
