After nearly 30 years on the job—22 of them as the Director of Bromley Mountain’s Ski and Snowboard School—Peter Robertson has decided to move on to other pursuits and step down as Bromley's Director of Snow Sports.

“I’ve worked with Pete for more than twenty years,” Bromley’s General Manager Bill Cairns said. “He’s done a fantastic job for us here over the years and has built the [ski and snowboard] school into one of the most respected programs in the industry. I, personally, and all of us here at Bromley, wish Pete nothing but success and happiness in his new endeavors.”

Enter one of the most unique names in the snow industry, Burleigh Sunflower. It's just fun to say and despite his burly appearance, Sunflower's as nice as his name suggests and he's all business when it comes to teaching the next generation of skiers and riders.

Sunflower has been Bromley’s Snowboard School Manager for the past seven years and was the Snowboard Supervisor at Okemo’s Jackson Gore base area prior to that. He's been actively teaching for 15 years and is certified by both the Professional Ski Instructor’s Association and the American Association of Snowboard Instructors. Sunflower served two years on the PSIA’s Advanced Children’s Education Team and currently serves on the AASI Board of Examiners.

“Of course, with change comes the opportunity for new successes,” Cairns said. “As I’ve said before, Bromley has a very deep bench and we were fortunate to have a man of Burleigh’s caliber and experience to call on.”

Burleigh will play a critical role in Bromley's new KidsRule Mountain Camp—a collaborative instruction program coordinated with the efforts of Jiminy Peak and Cranmore Mountain Resort.
