I'm a solid advanced intermediate/advanced skier. I took my 8-year-old daughter to Bromley Monday and Tuesday of Presidents' Day week and had a fantastic time. Overall, the place is very well run and all staff encountered--including the lift operators, parking attendants, cafeteria workers, ski instructors, etc.--were unusually pleasant, courteous, and helpful. My daughter was in the all-day kids club ski school. Instructors were professional and friendly, and she had two great days on the mountain and improved greatly. There is a good variety of terrain, although true experts won't be terribly challenged. Some lifts are slow, but the express quad is fast and provides access to nearly the entire mountain. For a holiday weekend with exceptionally beautiful weather, lift lines were short to non-existent. Grooming was thorough and, considering there hadn't been natural snow recently (and there was a recent thaw), conditions were superb. All in all, a very positive experience.
