Buttermilk Reviews & Tips (1)

My first time in Aspen, my first time skiing. It was amazing! the best feeling in my life while I was going downhill. Really nice tracks for beginners and once you take a little bit of confidence in your style, you can try intermediate tracks. I took one lesson for about 4 hours and it was enough to get alone by myself and explore the mountain. Of course they have a really good staff who is always looking forward to help everyone who is having a problem. And is about 10 minutes by bus from Aspen downtown. So it is really easy to move around. I recommend it a 100% for everyone who is planning to visit this beautiful place. Such a great mountain, such a great place! I hope to go back some day.
