Bromont is a fantastic suburban ski area for families. First, it is VERY close to downtown Montreal. Second, it has the BEST layout for families with young children, as the pony "hill" is right next to the base lodge. Parents can take turns sitting in the lodge and watching their infants learn to ski right outside the window. The pony hill is outstanding, the perfect pitch and with a great traction lift. As for the "mountain," it's a nice place to teach kids to ski. You'd never go there if you were only adults, unless it was to night ski-there is an incredible night ski infrastructure- I've never seen so much light on a hillside.
