Frequently Asked Questions about Bromley Season Passes
Choosing a season pass requires a little researching and advance planning. Let us help you to make the right choice for your lifestyle and budget!
|Type of Pass||Consider Buying this pass if...|
|Full Season Pass||...You want the convenience of accessing the mountain whenever you want - to take two runs or twenty. This is also the only pass product that is unrestricted during the winter season. If you want to ski/ride during holiday periods, this is the pass to purchase. Use it as often as you desire during the winter season!|
|Super Value Pass||...You want to ski or board as many days as possible, except for the 16 days a season when everyone else is on vacation. Valid 7 days a week, except for holiday periods. (Blackout dates: 12/26/13 - 1/1/14; 1/18 - 1/19/14; 2/15 - 2/21/14)|
|Midweek Season Pass||...You have the flexibility to ski or board Monday - Friday. The Midweek Pass is not valid during the Christmas or February holiday periods, but is valid the Monday of Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. (Blackout dates: 12/26/13 - 1/1/14; 1/18 - 1/19/14; 2/15 - 2/21/14)|

Half of the remaining balance will be charged on August 1, 2013, with the final balance charged on November 1, 2013. The same credit/debit card will be charged for all payments.

Please ensure that your credit card expiration date is after November 2013.

When can I get my picture taken and where can I pick up my Pass?
If purchased before the close of the 2012/13 Winter Season, Season Passes for the 2013/14 Season can be picked up at the ticket office during normal business hours. If purchased after the end of the 2012/13 Winter Season, 2013/14 Season Passes will be available for pick up after November 4, 2013. Fall ticket office hours are 8am-4pm Monday - Friday. Beginning November 11, hours will be Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm and Saturday - Sunday 10 - 2 through opening day.
Where is the Ticket Office located?
At the base of the mountain, just beyond and to the left of the flagpoles in the pick up/drop off area.
What do I need to bring with me to get my Season Pass?
Photo identification is required with proof of age; Passes will not be issued without one. Please be prepared to sign a release form. Children under 18 will need to bring a signed release or be accompanied by their legal guardian. We also require a birth certificate to issue the 5 and under Season Pass. For the Bromley college pass, the student must provide Bromley with their college ID and an original signed letter from the registrar's office (with the college's embossed seal) showing full time student status, or the pass will not be printed and issued. The letter can be mailed in before the pass is picked up. This will help with the delays of verifying the letter.
Can I wear my crazy cool wig/hat/fake teeth/sunglasses in my pass picture?
Pass photos are intended for identification purposes so you will be kindly asked to remove your hat, sun glasses, and any witty costumes prior to your Pass photo. Your cooperation is appreciated!

Why do season pass rates vary so much from ski area to ski area?
Many ski resorts, including Bromley, set their pass rates as a factor of their daily lift ticket pricing. Pricing in this manner is traditionally done by ski resorts that focus primarily on skiing (as opposed to revenue from lodging, dining, and non-skiing and snowboarding activities like tubing parks or special events). Ski resorts that have multiple revenue sources may shift their pricing structure lower for skiing, in order to enhance their revenues in these other service areas.
Even so, Bromley strives to make skiing and snowboarding as affordable as possible through its mix of pass products at varying price points.
Is Bromley committed to daily operations through closing day?
Yes. Daily operations from opening day through April are planned and budgeted for the 2013/14 season. Please remember, though, that our business is completely dependent upon weather, so we can't guarantee that the operating plan won't change. Please consider this when making your Pass purchase decision. Management reserves the right to suspend operations at its discretion. In the event that early or late season operations are suspended for 3 or more consecutive midweek days, midweek season passes will be honored the following weekend.
Why doesn't Bromley operate every lift every day?
This is an economic environment in which operating costs continue to rise much faster than revenue, so Bromley must make the resort's operations as efficient as possible. One of those efficiencies is to balance uphill capacity with uphill demand on any given day. On busy days, when all available lift capacity is needed, all lifts will run (unless weather or safety issues prevent us from doing so). But when attendance is reduced, it's simply not efficient to operate as many lifts. Efficiency helps keep pass prices as low as possible.
When does the Season Pass Sale end?
Season Passes will be sold 365 days a year. However, we have 3 price tiers for season pass sales; the best prices and lowest rates will be offered through May 15, 2013, and the next best rates through October 15, 2013.
