West Area at Ski Butternut
On November 22, 1983, the Murdocks purchased 135 acres of land west of Butternut for $350,000. Part of the purchase included a pond for snowmaking water. In addition, Murdock speculated on constructing new trails and "two more major chairlifts."|
In the subsequent decades no net new chairlifts have been installed (three new quad chairlifts were replacements of existing lifts), so it is thought the plans were shelved.
