Comparing Sutton, Bromont and Jay Peak

Goo day - we are a family of 4, with 2 girls 15 and 13, all are intermediate skiers and have skied Whister, Banff, Tremblant, St Anne, Massif, Vermont, Colorado and Niseko (Japan).

We plan to ski a few days in mid February in Quebec and want to try some mountains that we have not been to before. We are comparing Bromont and Sutton. In reviewing some website, we are leaning towards Sutton - which seems to be similar to Jay Peak. We love Jay Peak's glad skiing although we are staying at the intermediate level.

We also heard good review on Bromont - therefore we hope to have some advice on our decision.

We are driving from Toronto, and plan to ski Feb 17-19 (Friday to Sunday).

Thanks in advance for your suggestion!

If you enjoy Jay, you will likely enjoy Sutton more than Bromont. They are very different. Bromont has the best snow making and grooming in the area. It has excellent night skiing with fabulous lighting and you quickly forget it's night. It has numerous high speed detachable lifts and tons of runs. It is however more like driving on a highway whereas Sutton is like going for a Sunday drive on a curvy country road.

I ski both regularly as I live in the area. I choose depending on weather, conditions and time of day. Often I go after work and can ski Bromont from 3-6 pm and still be home for supper so it is very convenient .

If you like glades then Sutton is the easy winner and they have lots of them that are suitable for intermediate skiers.

Enjoy your trip.

Yes for Sutton, and it sounds like you are good skiers. If the conditions are good, the sous bois (glades) are fantastique. Keep in mind that it's family day in Ontario on the Monday as it is the President's day in the USA.

The crowds should not be bad as Americans do not go to Sutton considering all the great choices they have in the New England states and Ontarians all flock to Tremblant and Ste Anne.

Bromont caters to the Montreal day skiers mostly and has exceptional grooming but does not offer the variety and challenge of Sutton.
