Not many metropolises in eastern North America can boast a 1,300-foot ski mountain within an hour's drive of downtown. That height and proximity has made Bromont very popular with Montréal day-trippers and weekenders. But Bromont's 156 trails (102 of them lighted at night) and nine lifts can handle the crowds quite comfortably. Like many other ski hills, Bromont operates as a year-round resort. In summer and early fall, you can take a mountain bike to the summit aboard
a chairlift and test your nerves on one of 19 downhill trails, two of which are labelled "easy"—the rest are "hard" to "extreme." Part of the ski hill is converted into the Bromont Aquatic Park in summer, with a 24,000-square-foot wave pool and 25 rides and slides.
