Motor Room Bar

Looking for an après-ski experience like no other? Find your enclosed-cabin snowcat waiting outside the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bar and climb aboard for a behind-the-scenes adventure. After a ride on the trails with no one but the groomers, you’ll arrive at the Motor Room Bar, located in the original drive terminal of Killington’s very first four-passenger lift.


With much of the lift’s equipment still in place, enjoy a drink and a selection of hors d’oeuvres as you take in views of Bear Mountain through floor-to-ceiling windows. As night falls, the snowcat will be waiting to usher you home under the stars.

  • Includes round-trip ride to the Motor Room Bar via snowcat
  • Light hors d'oeuvres and a maximum of two drinks per person included
  • Maximum of ten people per excursion
  • Ages 21 and over only, please
  • All guests must be able to climb two flights of steep stairs to enter the Motor Room Bar
  • Advanced reservations are required. Call 800-621-6867.
