Bromont is a very unique ski resort, located in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, only an hour away from downtown Montreal. Bromont offers over a hundred trails on 7 sides of the mountain. The sheer number of trails, and possibilities are overwhelming, which allow you to avoid crowds and line ups while seeking out another path down the mountain.
Bromont also offers the largest night skiing domain in North America, with 6 of its 7 sides illuminated for skiing under the stars.
Let us start from the beginning, from the well designed buildings, including the restaurants, bars and lodges, and the sizable parking lots, the base area is ready to meet your needs.
Once the skiing starts, even beginners will feel safe and welcome. Bromont has a unique beginner mountain called Mont Soleil, separate from the main mountain. A magic carpet and a quad chairlift, welcome the novice skiers on its easy and intermediate trails. There are even beginner glades to try and enjoy. These trails are also surrounded by many of the mountain side housing projects.
Moving beyond Mont Soleil, you are next met by the Versant du Village, the main side of the mountain, which presents the highest vertical drop at Bromont of 380 meters. Trails here offer challenges for all skill levels, from the World Cup trail, to Cowansville and Brome, there is definitely something to enjoy by all. The mountain has a unique summit area, where three of the main lifts meet. The summit, while very small compared to Tremblant or Mont Sainte-Anne, has a unique feel, in that you truly do feel like you are at the top, and start descending as soon as you get off the chairlift. You can easily see 360 degrees around the area, spotting other ski mountains in the distance, sometimes even as far as Vermont. Looking at the trail map, you quickly realize that most trails are named after Canadian cities or towns, as well as the USA and beyond. The challenge is to conquer the trail named after your home town or city.
There are also 5 other sides, including Versant du Midi, Versant du Cote-Ouest, Versant des Cantons, Versant des Épinettes and Versant du Lac. Each one offers something different, from more glades, to natural snow, from trails that are straighter, to others with many turns and dips. Combined with the world class night skiing, you have unlimited choices to explore, day or night.
The Versant des Épinettes, having finally received its own lift last year, is the best kept secret of the mountain. The trails here are unlike the rest, with lots of turns and slopes, several in natural snow. Many trails give you views of the other summits of the mountain, and make you feel like you are in Europe, as the size of the resort is truly expansive.
Bromont even brings the night skiing experience to new heights, during "Les Nuits Blanches", lifts close at 2am, and the evening is filled with parties and themed events.
Bromont is known for its snow conditions and grooming. Twice a day, the majority of the trails are groomed. This ensures that the slopes are in top condition for the night skiing crowd, who often suffer at other resorts. The Cordory, as the snow is often referred to, is made to perfection, and maintained with elaborate grooming strategies. Bromont offers guaranteed skiing conditions, meaning that if you aren't satisfied within your first 30 minutes of skiing, you can go back to customer service and they will exchange your lift ticket for another lift ticket for a future visit to the resort.
The staff is friendly, the services are well thought out, everything speaks with a clear direction in mind, offering skiers and snowboarders the best experience on the mountain.
Overall, Bromont is worthy of its reputation. Offering world class skiing on a large variety of trails for all skill levels. The snow and conditions are proof that constant care and maintenance enhance the enjoyment and experience. Also, don't forget about the many events throughout the year, including the "Nuits Blanches" evenings, and you have a winner!
