    GET OUTDOORS AT A NEW ENGLAND SKI RESORT THIS SUMMER

    Bromley, Cranmore and Jiminy Peak Offer a Mountain of Family-Friendly Warm Weather Activities
     
    HANCOCK, Mass. (May 15, 2019) - As the famed New England mud season yields to the warm temperatures of late spring and summer, local ski resorts are gearing up for another stellar summer of special events, thrilling rides and attractions that far surpass the latest video games. For teens and young adults, these activities sure beat playing Fortnite all day and night in pajamas. See if you agree from this run-down of warm weather  activities at Bromley Mountain Resort in southern Vermont, Cranmore Mountain Resort in the New Hampshire White Mountains, and Jiminy Peak in the Massachusetts Berkshires.

    All summer long, the top attraction at this western Massachusetts resort is its Aerial Adventure Park, a self-guided aerial forest ropes course consisting of six elevated courses consisting of over 70 elements aimed at different ability levels, including rope bridges, ladders, cargo nets, and three zip lines. After receiving safety instructions, children and adults navigating the course are continuously belayed to a guide line for safety.
               
    The Jiminy Peak Mountain Adventure Park features a Mountain Coaster, Alpine Super Slide, Soaring Eagle, Giant Swing, Rock Climbing Wall, Zip Lines, and Euro Bungy Trampoline.
               
    The All Parks pass is $69 and participants must be at least 48 inches tall.
               
    Time to shred some green "powder" -  this summer, the resort again offers lift-served mountain biking. The Berkshire Express chairlift provides access to the summit and operates from 12 to 5 p.m., Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, beginning June 30 through mid October.
               
    The trail network, featuring a mix of single track and downhill cruisers, is best suited for experienced riders. The route includes some existing trails, as well as specially dedicated fat tire routes through the woods. Full suspension bikes and body armor are recommended and helmets are required. The single day mountain bike pass is $29. Single ride tickets are also available.
