Slopeside with Nick Borelli: Bromley

PERU, Vt. -

"We just keep coming back because we have a great time every time we come," said Neyah Bennit of Madison, Conn.

Bennit is referring to Bromley, the southern Vermont ski area founded back in 1936.

"We like the ability to keep track of all of our kids here," Bennit said. "It's sort of centrally located in terms of where all of the trails come to a head."

With all trails winding up in the same base area, a lot of families, like the Bennits, feel comfortable letting their kids ski together.

On many days, the sun also adds to the comfort levels.

"We are the only major area in Vermont that faces the sun. And what we have is the sun all day, even at 4 o'clock," said Bill Cairns, the president of Bromley.

The Bennit children appreciate the sun, among other things. They also point to smooth trails, lots of powder and the moguls.

With 46 trails Bromley is not the biggest resort in the area, but skiers tell us there's no shortage of variety.

"You have a variation of difficulty from pretty tough stuff, wood skiing, bumps, to nice, gentle groomers. But you really feel like you're in a New England area," said Chris Jenne of Huntington, N.Y.

Despite recent weather challenges, many of the trails are in great shape.

Moving around just a little bit you can hear that snow squeak. That's music to a lot of skiers ears and it means those conditions are really good right now.

"Today? Outstanding. Like it's just I've been here all week and they keep getting better and better and better," Jenne said.

"It's a little cold but the snow is just fabulous, the snow is just fabulous. They've got a lot of great snow cover on all of the trails," said Sarah Alley of Bedford, N.Y.

With another storm system impacting us through the late week, fresh snow will make conditions even better.

"The powder is gonna be amazing and the rest of the mountain will really open up," Alley said.

The combination of fresh powder and dropping ropes means skiers may come out in full force by this weekend.
