Uphill Travel Policy
WARNING! In accordance with Vermont law, a skier or person who takes part in any sport accepts as a matter of law all obvious and necessary dangers inherent in that sport. Your uphill travel (and resulting downhill travel) is at your own risk!
While Bromley encourages the use and enjoyment of the outdoors, it does restrict uphill access to any outdoor enthusiast whether hiking, snowshoeing or ski touring from dusk to dawn.
Uphill travel is permitted only from dawn until dusk provided it us conducted in compliance with the conditions in this policy. After dusk, use of the mountain is strictly off-limits and is considered trespassing. Bromley’s night security personnel will take note of all vehicle Information for people attempting to access the trails from dusk to dawn. This is in recognition of the real danger of skiing in poor lighting conditions and on trails with ongoing grooming and snowmaking. Bromley reserves the right to limit or restrict uphill access as conditions, terrain, or weather warrant. Dogs are welcome to join you, but must be on a leash.
Uphill ski access by foot, snowshoe or skis may occur on three routes from dawn to dusk, but is restricted to trail edges due to safety concerns. The three routes are:
- Twister/Upper Twister
- Thruway to Runaround 1
- Lower Boulevard, Shincracker, to Run Around 2 to Thruway to Sunset Pass to Summit
Stay clear of all snowmaking and snow grooming operations. Winch cable grooming may be in operation. Closed trails are off-limits. Please familiarize yourself with our Snow Report for information on open and closed terrain during operating hours. The snow report is not guaranteed to be 100% accurate, especially outside of normal lift hours, and trail openings/closures may occur at any time. It is not always obvious from the base of a trail if it is closed or open.
Before traveling uphill, you must obtain an uphill access season pass from the Bromley ticket office. The office staff will review the uphill policy with you and obtain your signature acknowledging compliance with Bromley’s uphill travel policy. The fee for the uphill pass is $20 per season if you do not own a season pass. If you own a season pass, the uphill pass is free. The pass must be worn on your arm while you are skinning up the mountain.
Trails are open to hiking access during non-winter seasons. Specific trails may be closed during the non-winter season when maintenance, mowing, or other activity might cause safety concerns for visitor or ski area staff.
