Buttermilk built its legacy on wide-open and gently rolling trails that cater to beginners and families. Today, Buttermilk remains famous from hosting the ESPN Winter X Games and being voted #1 by Transworld Snowboarding Magazine Reader's Poll for the best park and pipe. Buttermilk's 22-foot superpipe in the legendary terrain park does not disappoint, as many X Games winners, Olympians and up-and-comers can attest.
