Slopeside with Nick Borelli: Bromley

PERU, Vt. -

The weather this winter has been extremely variable, but modern snowmaking and grooming are helping places like Bromley cope with Mother Nature's curve balls.

"I think they've done quite well. They've weathered through the rain and warm temperatures and the grooming has been great. They've been making avid each night they can and the conditions are fantastic," said Curt Cowles of Bromley.

About 90 percent of Bromley's terrain is currently open. There are a few patches of ice on their steeper terrain, but the vast majority of surfaces are very edgeable. Skiers and riders are enjoying these conditions.

"Great, great. The mountain is in very, very good shape," said Juan Ramos of Argentina.

The skiing and riding are accompanied by some spectacular views

"At the top of the hill here we have a 360-degree view and we see all sorts of ski mountains. We can see Monadnock in New Hampshire. A beautiful view," Cowles said.

Thanks to the blue skies, we were fortunate to see the view for miles around. And the forecast is looking bright for skiers and riders. There's lots of sunshine today and temperatures are cold enough to support snowmaking. But by the end of this week, the clouds will fill in with a good chance for at least some welcomed snow. This would further improve conditions.

Bromley is one of the smaller ski resorts in the area. But its size and singular base are what make it appealing to families.

"We raised four children here, and now 10 grandchildren who ski," said Nathaniel Spier of Long Island, N.Y.

"I usually come here with my family," Ramos said. "We spend the holidays, the kids, the grandkids."

Many kids are already making memories at Bromley and enjoying the varying terrain.

"It's where we've been skiing forever and it's one of the better places I like," said Keenan McMorrow of Dorset.

Skiing and riding appeals to many young and old. That's part of the reason it's so popular and so much fun.
