X ParkLocation: Spruce and Government trails and accessed off of the Summit Express lift.
The Gist: This is the apex of Buttermilk's legendary freestyle terrain. X Park consists of approximately 25 advanced and expert features and is home to the famous 22-foot Zaugg cut Superpipe and Big Air Jump used in the ESPN Winter X Games.
Simply put, legendary professional reputations have been earned in this place.
In the X Park, ambitious and talented skiers and riders can test their skills against the same Slopestyle terrain as their X Games heroes, plus find hidden gems such as banked turns and rollers down the left side of Spruce on their way to the pipe.
Note: X Park usually opens just before Christmas, but shuts down for a little over one month shortly after the New Year. It reopens following the Aspen Snowmass Open. This closure is necessary due to the prep work needed to host the ESPN Winter X Games and the Aspen Snowmass Open, which are held on the same course as X slope-style. Following these two events, the slope-style course is only slightly altered before opening up to the public for the remainder of the season.
