Something to please everyone
Ski Bromont is the preeminent place to enjoy downhill skiing and snowboarding, obviously, but there is more to it than meets the eye. Are you more of the alpine hike type?

A total of 4, they are scattered around 3 hillsides – Versant du Village, Versant des Épinettes and Versant de la Côte Ouest – and are of various durations and difficulty levels. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced skier, looking for a long or not-so-long hike, one of these hiking trails will certainly please you.
More than an alpine resort!
Known as an outstanding mountain during wintertime, Ski Bromont transforms itself completely when summer comes around. If you wish to cool down while having tons of fun, its water park is totally worth the trip. If you are more of the adrenaline-fuelled, athletic type, you might be tempted by its various mountain bike trails, totalizing more than 50 kilometres of routes.
4 in 1
Bromont Water Park gives you the opportunity to dip your toes in 4 heated pools and enjoy 13 slides of varying thrill levels, but the park has many more activities!
Once you have access to the Water Park, you also have access to a free introduction to mountain biking on a trail for beginners. The free session includes all necessary equipment - bike, helmet and protective pads for elbows and knees.
You can also indulge in alpine luge when you visit Ski Bromont in the summertime. With its easy circuit, known as the Tortue, and its difficult one, the Lièvre, you hurtle down the mountainside as if you were in a bobsleigh.
Finally, Bromont is an absolutely charming region that deserves to be appreciated for its beauty. In this sense, nothing beats a short chairlift ride. Imagine looking down at the fall colours while enjoying a panoramic view of the area!
