Best Spot to View the Carnage

Bear Mountain Lodge, Killington, Vermont

Located at the base of Outer Limits, one of the East’s most challenging mogul runs, the deck at Bear Mountain Lodge can be like a front-row seat at a comedy club. “Have a beer and watch the egomaniacs disintegrate before your eyes,” says Lisa Feinberg, a devotee. Sure, the punch line may be predictable–skis and poles flying everywhere, snow packed into pants and ears. But
admit it, it’s funny. “The best was when a four-man synchronized ski team showed up,” says Feinberg. “But I’ll let you use your imagination for that.”
