Analysing terrain data
Growler is a marked double black diamond tree run suitable for serious EXPERTS ONLY.
Do not attempt this if you are unsure as this run dishes out steep and narrow tree lines with exposed rocks, ledges and moguls.
The best way to access this location is to take the Bear Mountain Quad (best option), then exit the lift straight ahead and take a sharp right turn on to the upper section of Wildfire.
You can also access Wildfire by taking the Superstar Express Quad and the Skye Ship Stage II Gondola and then try to get on Gateway from either one of those.
Take Gateway to Bear Claw and keep your speed up as you traverse across as high as you can to get to the top of Wildfire.
Either way, you need to be at the top of Wildfire and to stay towards skier’s right until you see Outer Limits Express.
This is a catwalk that takes you to the entrance of Growler, the MOTHER LOAD of all tree runs at Killington.
This area was opened up a few years ago, allowing experts to access trees that are at the same steep pitch as Outer Limits.
There are so many great lines in here, you just need to do it and find your own personal favorites.
Expect small ledges, drop offs, small cliffs, moguls, exposed rocks and a steep pitch.
When this has the snow, it is a KILLER run.
Perfect for people looking for a long and awesome double black diamond tree run in the Bear Mountain area.
