    Best Base Area Bars

    Sitting at Mahogany Ridge right now looking at the countdown clock till it's torn down. It's always been one of my favorites and it sucks that the new lodge will probably be some yuppie bullshit that I'd just go to Stratton if I wanted something like that. Anyway, my top 5 in no particular order...

    Bear Den at Burke
    Stark's Pub at MRG
    Cannonball Pub at Cannon
    Mahogany Ridge at K
    The Den at Stowe



    Nothing in the west compares to New England bars.

    The Den at Stowe is great. I really like CastleRock Pub at SB, just wish it had a view.

    Not sure what the inside of the new K1 will look like, but its going to have 2 legit stories with lots of glass I wouldn't rule it out just yet...

    Bartender here said the bar will be on the 3rd floor surrounded by glass. Im sure the view will be nice but you can't replace soul.

    Ive been wondering what they are going to do with all the stuff on the walls in Mahogany, bartenders had no idea what the plans were.....some pretty cool stuff on the walls in there and I think some of it would look pretty cool in my basement.

    agreed you can't replace the vibe of an older building, but the lodges at Killington are all well worn and it'll be nice to have a new much lager more functional facility.

    I’ve been to nearly all the bars above, but Wildcat’s pub works best for me. Two decks facing both the Cat and Mt Washington. Mellowest possible vibe. On a spring day, there’s nothing better.

    Black Line was rocking this past Saturday. Effed up on Fiddleheads. Honorable mention to the Paul Bunyan Room @ Loon. Best apres tacos....Fire on the Mountain at Powder Ridge in Ct. (I know, don't laugh but the food there is seriously good)
