Bromley Mountain is a mountain in the Green Mountains of southern Vermont, United States. It is located in Bennington County, seven miles (11 km) to the east of Manchester, Vermont and just west of Peru, Vermont. It is a popular destination for such sports as skiing and snowboarding.

The Bromley Mountain resort was founded by Fred Pabst Jr., the son of the famous Captain Frederick Pabst (Frederick was the founder of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer). It is home to 45 trails, including 4 glades, beginner to expert, served by nine lifts. Bromley was once rated number one in family programs in all of North America by SKI Magazine.

Due to its southern exposure, Bromley is known as "The Sun Mountain." History


Bromley mountain was not always named "bromley". They had their main peak named Big Bromley and they had a smaller peak for beginners called little bromley. The mountain was known for all the j bars they had that brought skiers everywhere on the mountain. In 1997 bromley installed a brand new high speed doppelmayr four passenger lift, and bromley just went up from there. In 2010 bromley had the idea to replace the two rope tows with a covered carpet. And in 2012, they started to renovate the base lodge, and add the Potter Brothers ski shop at the base of the mountain inside the base lodge.. There are now some ideas of expanding the mountain, but until then, we must wait.
