New Fort Frog Under Construction at Buttermilk

A new wooden, frontier-style fort is under construction in the woods of Buttermilk. The kid’s play structure will include lookout towers, a jail, a swinging bridge, a saloon with a candy bar, a post office, a turbo twister slide and more. The fort was named after Greg Fortin, a long-time ski instructor at Buttermilk in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, and is a memento to his legacy. The newly constructed fort will debut this winter and is accessed by skiing or snowboarding to the fort.
