Sun Mtn Sessions IV

For the past four years between December 26th and 28th Bromley Mountain has played host to the Sun Mtn Sessions. The freeform snowboard camp run by Tim Benasich and myself, focuses on progressing freestyle skills by way of using the excellent natural terrain found at Bromley, as well as educating riders on the rich snowboard heritage of the area. Many of the scene’s top athletes and personalities got their start at Bromley and jump at the chance to stop by during the holiday season.

Though heavy rain stole away the ample early season snow that Bromley had received, this past year proved to be as fun as ever. A day of snow, a day of sun, a day of man made mountains that proved incredibly entertaining, that was Sun Mtn Sessions IV.

The closing party once again featured excellent wood fired pizza from Sammy’s in Manchester,VT and product giveaways from Burton Snowboards, Vestal Watches, Smith Optics, The Nice Life Apparel Co, Vew-Do Balance Boards and 3L Apparel.

Proceeds from the camp are donated to J.I.S.P. which helps get local kids to the mountain and into a group instruction program. Special thanks to Burleigh Sunflower and the Bromley Mountain Snowmaking Team for making sure the conditions were the best they could be.

See you in December for our 5th Anniversary year featuring a concert by hologram Tupac and The Muppets!

Adventure Time: NYC-Montreal

When was the last time you jumped on a train for a weekend getaway? Yeah, that’s what I thought, you’ve never done that. Well the good folks at Amtrak would like that to change, so they’re offering all sorts of good deals of late. One of the best, New York City to Montreal for $89, round trip. That’s right, $89 and you’ve got yourself a ride on one of the most scenic train rides in the world. Having done the leg between Albany and NYC many, many times I can attest to the truth in the previous statement for those first two and a half hours. North of Albany the tracks go on to cut through the Adirondack Mountains and hug the shores of Lake Champlain, beautiful landscape by car, even more beautiful by train I’m sure. This deal only runs until April 23rd and travel must be complete by April 26th, so you better get to planning. All the details you need are on Amtrack, just click the pic up above and enjoy your getaway.
