Buttermilk is located approximately 200 miles from Denver, in Pitkin County. It is the smallest of the four Aspen, Colorado ski resorts. (See Aspen Highlands, Aspen Mountain and Snowmass).

Although it's relatively small, at 470 acres, Buttermilk is home to one of the best half pipes in the country and has hosted the Winter X-Games multiple times.

Often considered the easiest area to ski in Aspen, Buttermilk has many gentle rolling runs that cater to families and those just getting their snow legs. If you'll be in Aspen and are looking for something a little more low-key for the family, Buttermilk is always a great option.
