Bromley Mountain Resort Overview

May 2021

Bromley, located in Southern Vermont, about 15 minutes from Manchester, caters to families and first timers along with seasoned, regular weekend shredders. Bromley, along with nearby Stratton and Magic Mountain, form Vermont's "Golden Triangle" of ski areas within 10 miles of one another. Bromley stands out in this group for its southern exposure, even earning the nickname "The Sun Mountain" Trust us, there are days where this feature can make a big difference!   


While the resort is very kid friendly, it's expert runs are fun too with 1,334 vertical feet and a few glades. Bromley was founded by Fred Pabst Jr., the grandson of the founder of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, Captain Frederick Pabst. Today, Bromley remains independent and is rarely crowded. Independence helps maintain the resort's authentic, laid back, old school, charm.
