Mont Brome (aka Bromont, Bromount, Mount Brome) is part of the Monteregian Hills in southern Quebec. Its summit stands 553 m (1,814 ft) above sea level. It is near the town of Bromont, Quebec. The ski resort Ski Bromont lies on its slopes.

Geology[edit]

Mont Brome might be the deep extension of a vastly eroded ancient volcanic complex, which was probably active about 125 million years ago.[2] The mountain was created when the North American Plate moved westward over the New England hotspot,[2] along with other mountains of the Monteregian Hills that form part of the vast Great Meteor hotspot track.
