Temporary Update to our Uphill Travel Policy
March 23, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Bromley Mountain is currently closed to all activity. No uphill travel, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing or sledding is allowed. Equipment and environmental hazards exist. There are no services available. Any injury will further tax a system that relies on a small group of dedicated rescue personnel serving not only the mountain but all our neighbors. Please be safe, for yourself and for the community. Forgive our bluntness. Sledding, and other inherently dangerous (and always prohibited) activities have been observed in recent days. We rely on your cooperation, and appreciate your understanding. We hope to return to our standard policy, below, as soon as we can. Please visit this page for more information on how the novel coronavirus is affecting Bromley operations.
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 not permitted. Please note, this is a recent revision to the policy, effective immediately, and due to misuse of our prior allowance of dogs as long as they were kept leashed and by your side.
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:
- Lower Twister → Upper Twister
- Lower Thruway → Upper Thruway → Runaround 1
- Lower Boulevard → Shincracker → Run Around 2 → Upper Thruway → Sunset Pass → Upper Twister
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.
