Ski Butternut Resort - Window Lift Ticket Prices are a Rip off Window Lift Ticket Prices are a Rip off

Last Sunday took the family to Skibutternut in Great Barrington.

Paid $240.00 - ticket window price: $60/ea for 4 tickets.

Learned that afternoon, most skiers paid;

$30 - $40 for the same Sunday ticket Big 32% Difference.

Here's how the Skibutternut,com scam works.


Ski Butternut has an inflated retail window ticket price.

Ski Butternut then Discounts from this Inflated Price.

Ski butternut ticket pricing has nothing to do with Costs or Value.

It’s a tricky Marketing Scheme – plain & simple!

I learned they’re many groups you can join for FREE

and get a $40 ski butternut weekend ski ticket.

(32% discount). Wait there’s more…

There are many gas stations on route to Ski Butternut

giving away (with $10 gas purchase)

Free (BOGO) Buy One - Get One Vouchers

(50% discount) $30 ticket.

Paying Ski Butternut’s Window Price is a “Terrible Family Rip-off”!

== Butternut IS NOT A Family Friendly Mountain ==

This SCAM reminds me of the Bankrupt Retailer

Circuit City. They too had a similar Pricing Scam.

Circuit City routinely jacked up prices on popular items.

Merchandise sat cold on shelves for weeks.

Then Circuit City would run a big 30% - 50% Sale.

Innocent buyers thought they got a great deal.

In reality, Circuit City gave them a raw deal.

When buyers found out they were ripped off

They stopped shopping Circuit City. Tickets are really worth $25 - $35.

Butternut is a cute hill not a real ski mountain.

If you Pay Butternut's Full Window Price and you got Ripped Off.

Skibutternut's Marketing Manager, Matt Sawyer defended

his inflated weekend rates, claims “we give great value”.

I dispute this, and compared Matt Sawyer’s claim to:

A Belleayre Ski Ticket - only $47 from

Belleayre is 4x Larger than (more trails)

Belleayre ski lifts are faster and newer then Ski Butternut’s.

Belleayre has a longer ski season: Nov – April

$60 vs $47 Belleayre offers 22% more family value.
