I assume your delineation of Bar vs Pub is that Pub serves food while Bar is drink only?
I like the Swig and Smelt at Saddleback. The bar at the Tram summitt at Cannon is kind of neat too as you are really high up and can enjoy a cold one before skiing down.
Bullwinkle's at Sugarloaf is nice on mtn eats/beers

Station taproom at Mount Snow! 18 of the best rotating micros on tap that you can ask for!

Actually - Cannonball Pub is not bad either! Most of these i have not been to especially in NY. Swig and Smelt is cool but a little too wide open. Umbrella bar is fun at K-1.

Bretton Woods - their pub is nothing great but their deck rocks!

Some of my favorites are:

Nashoba Outlook Pub- So close to home, feels like I am so far away!
CannonBall Pub - Great vibe, love the place
Powderkeg at Gunstock - Home mountain and the mug club!
Foggy Google - Need I say more?

While it's not at the mountain, the Red Parka Pub in Glen is my favorite ski bar. The Glen House and the one at the base of Glen Ellen are pretty cool too. I'm also a fan of the LOSTBO and Shovel Handle at Black.
