Where NYC goes to ski and ride!
Ski Butternut is, quite simply, the best skiing and riding you'll find close to or near New York City. It is the resort where so many city dwellers go to get away from it all.
Only 137 miles from Manhattan, sitting high above the quaint, charming New England town of Great Barrington, Massachusetts, sits Ski Butternut. It is arguably where the best skiing close to or near New York City is found. If you're not into skiing or riding, we also have 14 lanes of tubing.
Lots of people come up for a day trip from NYC, or stay overnight at any one of our nearby quintessential New England lodging options to make a weekend out of it.
Jet-set from the hustle and bustle of the city to our beautiful winter oasis in the Berkshires this season. Ski Butternut caters to all levels of skiing and riding, and also has daily rentals. Our world-class instructors are on hand to help each step of the way. Advanced skiers will find their own challenging runs. And for non-skiers, try Tubing!
