(December 2014) If you are thinking of trying to ski or snowboard you can try it with no strings attached. Just join the Bromley Ski & Snowboard School in their newly sculpted Terrain Based Learning Zone for Free on the two remaining dates this winter season! This is open for anyone from age 6 and up. This is a great opportunity to get the entire family out to try skiing. The remaining dates are Monday, January 19, 2015 and Sunday, March 15, 2015.
Four friends of mine took the lessons. Two tried skiing and two tried snowboarding. Of the four who tried it three were successful, the fourth was still unsteady on the snowboard. He admitted that maybe skiing would have been a better choice. They received a Learning Zone lift ticket (for the super fun and easy to ride covered magic carpet) a rental equipment package (your choice, skis or snowboard, boots & helmet) and Instruction from 10:30am until noon.
The lift ticket and equipment rental are good all day which allows you to continue practicing what you learned from the lesson earlier in the day. The 2 who tried skiing were actually anxious to get up on the beginner hill lift (so they bought a Sunday afternoon pass for $32) and both were able to make it down that slope with flying colors. Both are planning to go out and ski another day. The two who boarded were not so sure but one says he wants to try it again (probably due to his snowboarding son who is egging him on).
If you are interested in trying out skiing or boarding, call the Bromley Ski & Snowboard School at802.824.5522 x301 by 4pm the day before the event. To provide each participant with the best possible experience, each event is limited to the first 75 guests to register! Once you have signed up take a look at Bromley’s helpful hints page for suggestions on the best clothing choices for the day.
Also get a good night’s sleep the night before because you are going to need it. It may be one of the most strenuous days you have spent in the winter (aside from shoveling) but you will have a great time and crave for more, more, more.
Bromley is one of my favorite mountains because of its south facing slopes, good choice of trails from top to bottom, and great management of their trails surfaces. I have never had a bad day at Bromley. I always try to get there once or twice during the season.
Check out their webpage for online ticket deals, and other great deals like Family Fridays: Every full paying adult can purchase up to three teen/junior tickets for just $20 each with the purchase of an all-day lift ticket!
