Bromont - January 18, 2020

2

This Saturday was the fourth in the series of eight Nuit Blanches at Bromont, where you can ski from 8AM til 2AM. We were also graced with a forecast for a reasonable storm that would bring 15 to 20 cm to the townships. The storm was to begin at 5pm, leaving plenty of time during the day to relax and prepare for some serious night skiing in prime conditions. I didn't rush and planned to go after 9pm, giving the snow some time to accumulate on the granular and icy base (which was still recovering from last week's ice storm). After spending the afternoon lounging around the house and getting a few neglected chores completed, I got ready to go and packed myself a Creemore and deli sandwich snack since there are very few snacking options in Bromont after 2AM and I have reached my quota for tolerance of Tim Horton's already this season.

Each year, the system of delivering these passes seems to generate some confusion and I was initially told I needed to recuperate my pass at Saint-Sauveur, before they figured out I had my Saint-Sauveur pass and was there to activate my Bromont pass (Bromont also offers a reciprocal deal where you pay $70 for an option to ski Saint-Sauveur). Once I had my pass sorted out, I got ready and headed to the lift. The temperature was a bit more moderate than at Sa...

Bromont, montagne d'éxperiences

P3011322

Bromont, montagne d'éxperiences, 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 to descend the mountain are overwhelming. Bromont also offers the largest night skiing domain in North America, with 7 sides illuminated on certain nights for skiing under the stars, occasionally well past midnight.  The Mountain and the Ski Trails 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 mountainside homes and condos. Moving beyond Mont Soleil, you are next met by the Versant du Village, the main side of Mont Brome, whi...
