How did a Quebec resort get in a Vermont Bike Guide?

Where else in the world can you watch bikini-clad hotties (and surf-trunked hunks) lounging poolside while you ride a chairlift with your bike and drip sweat into your spandex?

Bromont Parc in southern Quebec is like the Disney World of mountain biking – colorful chalet-style condos surround an extensive water park at the base of the 1800-foot Mt. Brom, which boasts over 60 miles of riding trails and 12 lift-accessed downhill tracks.

It may seem odd that the first stop on our journey to create the comprehensive Vermont mountain bike guide isn’t even in the same country, but Bromont is only 30 miles from the state’s border and it’s so awesome, hundreds of Americans visit every season.

Just how good is it you ask? When we pulled into the parking lot, Ryan and I were immediately greeted by the sight of two women in Brazilian-style bathing suits sashaying towards the water park. We were then given one comp lift pass (Ryan already has a season’s pass which he got for only $179) and we hit trails that offered everything from 10-foot drops (kudos to Ryan’s cahones), buffed-out berms, mellow stream-side circuits, table-top booters, and rocky roll-downs, West Coast style.

Bromont will definitely be listed in the addendum of our “Mountain Bike Vermont – a comprehensive guide” book. A place this good deserves international recognition.
