Once you find your way around this place is amazing! Lots of fun technical routes with teeth chattering downhills and lung exploding uphills. I would not have had nearly as much fun if I had not met a pair of local embassadors at Casa Bromont. They showed what Bromont riding and Eggs Benedict were all about. You will be thoroughly challenged and will leave with a huge smile on your face anticipating your next ride there.

The fastest one to the bottom of the hill.

Poor trail markings. Took a nice straight line trail only to be chased down by a Bromont 5-O on an ATV who told me that the trail was an "uphill" trail and theatened to clip my ticket if he found me on it again. Those cross country riders in their pink tights still seem to have some sway at Bromont to have an otherwise good downhill trail turned into cardio-central. On the real downhill runs (if you can find them), they are well cut and quite technical. Watch out for pedestrian and cross country traffic though (apparently only dh riders are targetted for expulsion from Bromont). Low rating is for poor staff, lack of respect to dh riders and awful trail markings.

Customer Service

Not worth the drive.

The most used trails are rocky and some of them are for Downhill bikes only...unless you dont want to work on monday...

But the best kept secret of Bromont is that there are amazing trails but you have to find them and no you will not find them if you take the chair lift. You must suffer to the top and the reward will wait for you. I will not tell you how to get to the nice trails but here's a hint...you can't see them from the parking lot.

Customer Service

Just follow the signs for "Station de ski Bromont" on Hwy 10. 45 minutes east of Montreal

You can take the chairlift, but you have to ride to the top to truly experience the agony and ecstasy of mountain biking. As noted in the review above, there are many trails that are not seen from the parking lot. The trails, and there is many of them, are varied in skill level. The ground was extremely dry when I was there, it was powdery, and would float up into great clouds when you were screaming down the trail. If you're not familiar with the trails ride in front so you don't detroy your bike and your body. The trails wind everywhere, creating a number of great rides. This is a fun place to ride for the intermediate to expert rider, and there is a pretty good downhill course as well. Beginners might get tired and killed on some of the more treaturous sections.

Customer Service

Ride to the top!

This is definetly the best place to mountain bike I have ever been. It litterally has everything for everyone! From easy family outing trails, to whoa!... this trail is going to cost me some teeth! They have over 50 different trails, and I'm being conservative. The only thing that even comes close is Mont Ste-Anne. If you haven't been, you're really missing out on something!!!!! They even have ski lifts to the top if you're lazy. I prefer climbing. My favorite trail is the World cup circuit where the 1991 World Championships were held (see my review on this trail). I don't know what else to say to convince you. Just go there and you won't regret it! I can't wait to go break in my new bike there! Just to let you know, I have to drive 500 km form my town just to get there! But it's worth it!

Customer Service

From Montreal, highway 10 all the way to Bromont, then follow the ski resort signs.

Similar Products Used: The only thing I don't like about Bromont is the local bike club. They try to charge admission fees, and to the best of my knowledge they have absolutely no right to! They claim it's to tend the trails, but believe me it goes to finance the club! I've never seen any of them fixing the trails. Once one of them chewed me out for not paying. I told him that I'd rather volunteer a few days work to help fix the trails. He told me that they didn't want people to help out. Just to pay the admission so THEY can take care of the trails! Sounds like a pretty flimsy excuse to me! I'm built like a horse and my "slave" labour would be worth a lot more than some admission fee! Anyways, Bromont is still the cream of the crop, and these anoying people are easily avoidable since there are over 50 different ways to access the mountain. Have fun!

the riding was amazing, very technically challenging and physically demanding. Really enjoyed the Bing Bang, 19 and 20 trails, they were unbelievable. The trails are very rocky and are covered in roots. Flatted five times in two days on my sts even with 60 psi in the tires. lift tickets cost 22 each and in peak season you can ride until 6:30. Bromont is amazing.

Similar Products Used: check out the hotel menhir, the rooms were comfy and the rates were good, only two minutes from the mountain.

I've tried many, many mountains, and many, many trails, NOTHING BEATS BROMONT! Trails are moderate to difficult. You'll see XC geeks to core DHers and everybody enjoys the trails - they are well maintained, easy to follow, and will always be challenging.
If you have never ridden here, why are you reading this? - Go and ride!

Customer Service

Any direction from the top down.

Good trails, however I've noticed they are getting quite worn out already, just since last year. The trails are predominently for downhillers. I'm a single track rider with a hardtail, and some of the trails are quite technical and hard to traverse. I've ridden almost every trail there, and I get a kick out of the downhillers pushing their bikes up some of the small inclines. Get in shape ride them......too many of them are over weight, and can only go downhill fast, needing a respirator on any incline or some on flat sections. Too bad there isn't time share condo's in the area to rent for the weekend as there is in Killington. Accomodation in the area lacks.

Bromont is quite possibly the best place east of BC. The trails are great, DH, XC, waterslides, mountain luge, golf, hot chicks in body armour it is great.

Everything is technical at the top and then fast in the middle and bottom. Switchbacks, jumps, banked corners, drops, rock, singletrack, hardpack and mud!!!
I love BROMONT!

Go in a car

Similar Products Used: The Eastern Townships probably have more trails per square kilometer than any place I have ever seen, just look around and you can see them everywhere.

Some of the locals were nice enough to show me a couple different routes to ride to the top of the ski mountain. It was awesome. I'd love to go back. 1 to 2 hours climbing. 30 to 45 minutes riding back down. It was great on my 10 year old Diamondback hard tail. I'd love to try it on my Giant NRS1. It was usaully wet and hard on my bike but well worth it, all the rocks and steep scary downhill stuff. I can't wait to go back.

Customer Service

I stayed at the Chal... hotel for a month or so in late 98. I rode out the back door down the hill across the ski lift parking lot to the trail.
