Buttermilk sounds friendly doesn't it – almost as if you fall it won't hurt. It's supposed to, it's been designed with beginners in mind – so the trails are wide and the slopes gentle, the opposite to most of Aspen – though they probably couldn't do anything about hurting when you fall over. Panda Peak sticks with the friendly sounding names, and is probably the best place to get started, a short double chairlift away from the main slopes and the lodges, it's got a nice, gentle, well covered slope. West Buttermilk has tree trails designed for beginners and kids, and picnic tables.

Buttermilk is also set up with snowboarders in mind – it's got one of the world's longest terrain parks with a full two miles worth of rails, pipes, a superpipe and more, including a good swathe dedicated to beginner boarders. There's a beginner pipe at Panda Peak.
