DECember 2017 –APRIL 2018

This is your opportunity to learn how to command a state-of-the-art Prinoth Bison, a Stage IV/Tier 4 snowcat - likened to a cross between a Lamborghini and an F-15 fighter jet. With wrap-around windows for ultimate visibility and expert instruction, you’ll get to handle this snow machine, laying lines of corduroy. Buttermilk Mountain is one of the few ski resorts in the world to have Tier 4 on front line groomers, you will be behind the wheel (well, joystick) of the most efficient and environmentally-friendly snowcats in the world. With room for up to two passengers, opt for one-on-one instruction or bring a parent, child or friend along for a shared lesson. The class lasts approximately three hours, starting with initial training then time to play on Panda Peak. Safety is a priority and the course can be easily catered to the desire of each guest, whether it’s simply to push snow or go groom a trail of your own. Class is dependent upon snow conditions and mountain operations’ workload. Opening Week and the two weeks surrounding X Games will not allow for any classes to be offered. Pricing is for up to two guests and includes hot cocoa and savory and sweet treats from element 47 at The Nell, and other surprises. Ages 5 and up are welcome as passengers when accompanied by an adult.Winter Adventures are exclusive to guests of The Little Nell, Residences at The Little Nell and The Limelight Hotel.

Schedule:
3:40 p.m. - Transfer from The Little Nell by private shuttle to Buttermilk.
4:00 p.m. - Arrive at Buttermilk to meet your snowcat instructor. After a photo with the snowcat by SharpShooter Imaging, your instructor will provide a full overview of the cat, opening it like a Transformer and explaining all functionality. You’ll ride inside and learn how each and every aspect works.
5:30 p.m. - Your turn to take the helm and groom the mountain where you feel comfortable, with expert guidance the entire time.
7:00 p.m. - Your Little Nell shuttle will meet you to return to the hotel.
