Rando Race

Mar 17th

Bromley welcomes the NE Rando Race Series - a multiple-venue rando race (aka, ski mountaineering, uphill/downhill, “skimo”) - back to the Sun Mountain for their mid-March event. Find out more, or sign up today!

Rando – short for randonnée – ski racing hearkens back to skiing’s early years, when skiers challenged the mountain both up and down, without the help of chairlifts. Using climbing “skins” with alpine touring or telemark bindings (or even “split” snowboards), racers start at the base of the mountain, ascend it, then descend it, as fast as possible, over multiple laps, up to 6,000' cumulative vertical, in the truest test of the most complete skier overall.

Spring Fling

Mar 24th

Bromley family’s favorite sun-soaked (or just plain soaked) event is back for another year! Featuring pond skimming, a duct tape derby, live music, a BBQ, and free turns on the Summer Adventure Trampolie Things! Registration for pond skimming and duct tape derby will begin at 8:30am at the Info Desk in the base lodge. Complete schedule of events coming soon.
