Bromley Mountain Turns Up the Heat to Benefit Vermont Ski for Heat Fundraiser

January 18, 2016

Spicy Chicken Challenge at The Wild Boar Will Help Vermonters Stay Warm

PERU,VT (January 18, 2016) – Bromley Mountain in southern Vermont is turning up the heat in support of Ski For Heat, a volunteer nonprofit committed to raising funds to provide heating fuel assistance to low income families and individuals in communities throughout Vermont.

On Jan. 31, 2016, the ski area will offer $40 all-day lift tickets to registered Ski For Heat participants, with 50% of the ticket price donated directly to the nonprofit.

What’s more, Bromley’s Wild Boar Tavern will offer a plate of six super hot all natural boneless chicken tenders for $9.99. Each will be slathered in Chef Eileen Armet’s homemade Bromley Bomb Sauce containing ghost peppers rated up to 500,000 Scoville Heat Units.  By comparison popular Tabasco brand Original Red Sauce is only 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville units, so these belly bombs will be mighty hot.

Finish the fiery plate in five minutes and the chicken is free, with Bromley donating $25 to Ski For Heat, and one free lift ticket to each winner with the iron constitution.

This year, donations go even further considering the average cost of fuel oil no. 2 in the state is 29 percent lower ($2.012/gallon in January 2016, versus $2.845/gallon during the same period in 2015, according to the Vermont Public Service Department).

“While you are here skiing Bromley and eating our chicken, you will also be helping others in our community who need help in staying warm this winter. Most of us have a friend, family member, co-worker, or neighbor who is struggling. This is a fun and easy way to help make a difference,” said Bromley’s Michael Van Eyck, assistant general manager.

To receive the specially priced ticket, participants must register in advance on Ski For Heat’s website,  

Fuel assistance is provided to those with demonstrated need, often in an emergency situation where they don’t have enough money to keep themselves or their family warm. There are many thousands of Vermonters that depend on fuel assistance support in emergency situations. Since its inception in 2000, Ski For Heat has raised a quarter of a million dollars for fuel assistance.
