In addition to great Sun Mountain skiing and riding, Presidents’ Week festivities at Bromley Mountain kick off with the annual February Festival. Fireworks blast off at 7pm on February 13, followed by the torchlight parade, live music, great food and a silent auction, all to benefit the Bromley Outing Club, our Race and JISP programs.

The Wild Boar will host live music nightly from 3:30-6:30pm, and February 18 will feature special entertainment by comedian Steve van Zandt. We’ll wrap up the week with a two-day Telefest. The 31st Annual Kåre Andersen Telemark Festival is now 100% more fun with two whole days of clinics and camaraderie for all ages and abilities.
