Bear Mountain Quad to Bear Mountain
The Bear Mountain Quad chair lift is right in front of the lodge. This lift will deliver you to the top of Bear Mountain, the lowest of Killington Resort's 5 peaks. Bear Mountain somethimes seems like it's in a different climatic zone. Besides getting the first sun in the mornings, Bear Mountain can also be out of the wind, depending on the direction, compared to the other peaks.
Another different aspect of the trails off of Bear Mountain itself is that they don't lead to other parts of the resort unless you drive or shuttle from the base lodge. This isn't true of Bear Mountain Base Lodge overall, however. The other chair lift running out of this base lodge, the Skye Peak Quad, provides plenty of options for travelling to any other part of the resort.
Trail options after unloading from the Bear Mountain Quad are listed below according to difficulty, all these trails will lead you back to the Bear Mountain base lodge.
