Full review

First trip ever to Bromley was truly a pleasant surprise... had avoided it due to lack of elevation, lack of vertical rise and small size... My mistake! Went MLK day (Ok, maybe the 6" fresh pow helped... and the $39 lift ticket special) but the place delivered. The right side... especially Havoc, Stargazer, Blue Ribbon and Corkscrew/Pabst Peril & Panic were great fun and with the fresh pow... and ungroomed... bumps on every run... simply awesome. I was told the right side of Stargazer being open was rare... and worth it. Avalanche glade was great too.

I dare say my 11yr old and I found opportunities for plenty of fresh tracks even well into the afternoon... I'm guessing with the freshie, the "good" guys/gals went to the bigger resorts... no matter, they left the fresh tracks for us... and we didn't complain... we just enjoyed the day!
