New to Winter at Bromley or new to snowsports? Check out the topics below for a comprehensive guide to a day, a week or a season on the slopes of Southern Vermont's Sun Mountain. Gear, activities, and any question you might think to ask, we'll answer here. We look forward to hosting you this winter!
First Time Skiing/Snowboarding?
What kind of gear am I going to need?
While you can purchase or rent just about anything you'll need for a day on the slopes at the mountain, it's best to know what to expect.
- Ski & Snowboard Equipment - If you do not own equipment, we have a full service Rental Shop on site.
- Warm socks that will keep your feet dry all day long. Avoid wearing 2 pairs of socks!
- Insulated and water resistant pants.
- Helmets are strongly recommended. They are available from our rental shop and are made by Burton Snowboards to provide ample warmth and protection.
- Goggles - A nice pair of goggles or sunglasses are must when on the mountain. UV rays from the sun are reflected off the snow surface and can cause damage to your eyes.
- Gloves - Warm water resistant gloves or mittens are a necessity.
- Layers - Layering will allow you to keep a constant core temperature despite changes in activity or variable weather conditions. Wearing a base layer is key!
- Facemask - The cold air, wind, and sun, could make you cold and leave your cheeks and lips feeling chapped. Avoid this by wearing a face mask or neck gaiter.
Do I need a lift ticket?
A lift ticket is required for everyone using lift serviced terrain. You can purchase a lift ticket here.
How do I ride a chairlift?

First Time to Bromley?
Are there ATM's on site?
There is one ATM at Bromley located right outside the Wild Boar Tavern.
Is there Wi-Fi available?
There is, and better yet, it's FREE! That is a great thing, but since it's so great a lot of people use it and speeds can vary based on usage (especially during weekends and peak periods).
Is there anywhere to plug in, or charge my phone?
Yes! We have a limited number of charging stations (both USB ports and traditional 3 prong outlets) located in the loft on the top floor of the base lodge. Entering the base lodge from the main doors, take a right up the stairs - the charging loft is located up a few more stairs on the right hand wall (Route 11) side. You will need to supply your own cord.
Where is Ski Patrol/First Aid located?
The Bromley Ski Patrol/First Aid is located on the East end of the main base lodge. If you are in the lodge: Take the main stairwell (east end) to the bottom, turn right and follow signs for "First Aid". Ski patrol can also be contacted via phone at ext. 420.
Where is Lost & Found located?
Lost & Found is located through the main entrance of the lodge. A small room with a glass door is immediately on the left when you enter the lodge.
Where can I buy awesome Bromley gifts?
The Bromley Shop by Potter Brothers has tons of Bromley logo-wear right alongside their selections of the latest and greatest ski/snowboard gear. The Bromley Shop is located on ground level, across the main covered entrance from the Ticket Windows. It can also be accessed from the 2nd floor of the base lodge via the south stairwell (through the main base lodge doors, turn right, below sign for "ski shop.")
Furry friends are welcome on the mountain, but must be on a leash. They are not allowed on chairlifts, and they are not allowed indoors, unless they are a certified service animal. Pets are not allowed to hike up the mountain during winter operations.
Where do I park?
You have two options.
If you're arriving from the West (Manchester), you can enter the main parking lot from the rear. Just look for the Bromley sign on the right hand side of Route 11 as you approach the top of the hill. Park, and you can catch the shuttle from the parking lot to the base lodge (shuttle operates weekends and holidays only)! This is a good option if your party is small and you can carry all your own gear.
Use the main entrance. Bromley is located right on Route 11, you can see the base lodge and lifts right from the road. Turn in to the entrance and follow the directional signs; the unloading zone is to the left of the island. You can unload gear and passengers here, and then head straight ahead into the tunnel. The parking lot is on the other side of Route 11. Either enjoy a short walk back to the lodge, or catch the shuttle (shuttle operates weekends and holidays only). You can then join up with the rest of your party, and grab your gear from the unloading zone.
Where is the Ticket Office located?
The Ticket Office is located right near the Drop Off Zone. There are two main buildings in the Base Area. Standing in the drop off zone by the flagpoles, the Ticket Office is on the road side of the small building on the left, as you face up the mountain. (Right in front of you, to the left!)
I purchased my ticket online. Do I still need to go to a Ticket Window?
Lift tickets require advanced online purchase. Once you arrive at the mountain, proceed to one of our conveniently located kiosks to redeem your ticket. Buy tickets online here.
Can I pick up my equipment the day before without being charged?
Yes! In fact, we encourage you to do so. Hours for next-day rentals are 3-4pm midweek Non-Peak, and 3-4:30 weekends and Peak Periods.
Can I bring my own lunch?
Absolutely! However, we ask that you leave the crock pots and any cooking devices at home. There is no outside alcohol allowed in the base lodge.
