Logo   Ski Butternut, Great Barrington MA
Emphasis on families, snowmaking and snow grooming, and only a mile from the center of Great Barrington in the Massachusetts Berkshire Hills.



Since 1963, Ski Butternut in Great Barrington MA (map) has been committed to family skiing, and that's still its strong point.

The 110+ acres on Warner Mountain do indeed have lots of butternut trees, but the attraction is the 22 trails (20% Beginner, 60% Intermediate, 20% Expert) on the 1000-foot (305-meter) vertical drop served by 10 lifts (three quads, one triple, two doubles and four surface lifts).

Butternut prides itself on not just its 100% snowmaking capability, but also on the quality of the snow thus produced. The aim is to give families a high-quality skiing, snowboarding and tubing experience at reasonable cost.

Besides the downhill trails, Ski Butternut has two snowboard terrain parks, a snowtubing park with five lanes and its own lift, and eight miles (13 km) of Nordic/cross-country trails.

Ski Butternut is only one mile (1.6 km) from the center of the Berkshire Hills town of Great Barrington (map), so all of the town's lodging places—hotels, motels, inns, B&Bs—restaurants and shops are available to skiers, snowboarders and snowtubers. Click here for Berkshire Hills hotels.
