Bromont (QC) – 2/17/2013

Date(s) Skied: 2/17/2013

Resort or Ski Area: Bromont

Conditions: -10C; Packed Powder; Windy; Very Cold;

Trip Report: Bonjour de Estrie! This is Day One of the snowmonster's tour of the Eastern Townships.

After spending a day and a half eating our way through Montreal, little snowmonster and I headed to Bromont which is about 45 minutes from Montreal on Autoroute 10. I planned an afternoon and early evening of skiing. I got a 4 hour ticket for CAN$40. Apparently, the price changed at 2:45 pm when I got there and that was a very good deal.

Coverage was very good. Bromont's trails are mostly wide groomers. Perfect for cruising. There are a number of steep sections but nothing too pushy. The region had not received any snowfall in a bit and most of the glades were closed. There was one wide-open low-angle glade (Atlanta) that was fun to ski in though rocks and stumps poked out a bit. There are 7 sides of the mountain and I was able to ski all of them except the west side (closed). Snow operations routinely closed off certain trail at around 4 pm to groom them.

The night skiing operation was amazing. Basically, the whole mountain was lit-up and you could ski anywhere, even the low angle glades. I called it a night at around 6:30 since the winds were really biting. Overall impression was that Bromont reminded me of Sunapee but larger and with lights. Definitely a cruising type family mountain.
