Bromley Vermont

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Headed there Saturday & Sunday. Can someone give me an idea of snow conditions, bar recommendations and do's/don'ts for a beginner at that slope?

Conditions this weekend in southern VT should be very good. We're heving a light (3 to 6 inches) snow right now.
I haven't been to Bromley since Reagan was in the White House, so I don't remember much about it. It's a good "family friendly" mountain.
Try the Sirloin Saloon in Manchester. Not haute cuisine, but you won't leave there hungry. There's also a "rib" place on Rt 11 just up the hill from town...can't think of the name...ask anyone there, they'll know.
Have fun!

Please let me know how it was. I'm heading there Tuesday. Am flexable could deviate to Stratton or Magic (is it still Open?)

Skiied Bromley as a kid, haven't been since '86, but I agree about Manchester! The Sirloin Saloon is an old family favorite! Yum Yum! Also try to hit Mother Myricks for Ice Cream if you make it in to town!

Bromley doesn't have tremendous vertical, but it does have a lot of interesting terrain. They have a new detachable quad as their main lift now. It has a very friendly atmosphere and excellent snowmaking and grooming. Magic is really cool, but deficient in snowmaking. Stratton has good terrain, but obnoxious vibe. There are too many good resturants in the Manchester-Londonderry area to list here, but here’s some good not-too-expensive bets:
