The Ultimate Guide to Killington's Two Highly Unique Dining Experiences

In an effort to expand their horizons and attract more than just skiers and snowboarders to mountains, more and more resorts are offering dining experiences that are far beyond traditional. From beer pairing dinners, to rides in horse drawn sleighs followed by meals cooked by the fireside, resorts are ushering in the next level of dining with an avi bomb-like bang. Not to be outdone in all of this is Killington Mountain Resort, whose Motor Room Bar and Ledgewood Yurt are as beastly as their ski mountain reputation.

I can remember taking the old Devil's Fiddle chair up as a kid. Peering over the safety bar at the cliff and the netting that kept would-be-gapers from flying off the side to their impending doom. It looked pretty gnarly, but much has changed since then. What was Killington's very first four person lift has ceased to exist. Ceased to exist, that is, except for it's drive terminal which been converted into one of the most unique après-ski bars in the high country. Cleared of all its machinery and offering 360 degree views of the Green Mountain State the Motor Room Bar is unrivaled in terms of its distinctive qualities.

For anyone over the age of 21, you can hop on one of Killington's pimped out snow cats and ride up to the Motor Room. There, you'll climb up the stairs and into the bar where you'll be treated to a selection of hor d'oeuvres, up to two drinks, and expansive mountain views. Open regularly on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the season, it is required that you make a reservation to attend. Or, simply book your own private party there on another day and enjoy this rare après experience for yourself and your friends. 

Five Star Dining Experience With a Hint of Mongolian Culture

If you haven't seen the DIY show Love Yurts or studied the conquests of Kublai Khan then you may not know what a yurt is. However, this large, tent-like structure served the Mongolian nomads quite well as they roamed around central Asia conquering a large portion of the known world. Now, they are serving up quite the dining experience in one similar to these structures at Killington's Ledgewood Yurt. Looking for a decadent lunch in a social setting? This is the ultimate ski in ski out location. From heart warming soups to delicious smoked meats and frosty Vermont brews you'll immediately start to live by our All About Après mantra of nothing good happens on the slopes after 2 pm. However, if you are a last chair kind of person (I respect that) you can still experience the Ledgewood Yurt in all of its glory. Book one of their adult dinner excursions and be whisked away on a snow cat drawn sleigh to this trail side location where you'll enjoy a high end dining experience complete with five courses paired with the perfect drinks. Trust me, whether it is lunch or dinner, your spirits will be high when dining here. It is the ultimate in Mongolian culture meets top shelf culinary experience out there.
