    Is Bromont as good as MSA ?

    Does Bromont have gnarly trails like Mont Saint Anne?

    does anyone have first hand experience?

    Bromont is as hard as you want to make it.
    The easy trails are fun & flowy, the hard trails will break your bike and put you in the hospital.

    Is Bromont as good as MSA ?

    Aerius got to the point. A couple of other thoughts about Bromont:
    - if using your trail bike instead of a DH, install wider tire
    - use an aggressive tire with deeper tread
    - this will help your braking on the steep sections by cutting through the loose rubble
    - neither Bromont or MSA are beginner friendly. Sign up for some skills training and go home with some added bike skills instead of going home in a sling. No offence to you, I donít know your ability
    - if trail riding is more your speed, explore the Mont Oak trails which a not far from Bromont
    - go to Cycles St Onge in the nearby town of Granby. They are very knowledgeable about the trails in the area and also provide great service (Iím not affiliated with them in anyway, that is my experience)
    - bring your swim shorts and have a blast in the Bromont water park!
    - if you intend to use the lift at either location, make sure you check the schedule for which days it is operational. Especially Bromont, since they donít always have the second lift running on the south side which provides access to their easier/flow trails (which still have a high level of tech for flow trails)

    I visited both Bromont and MSA a couple of weeks ago and there is some great advanced/expert riding to be had at both. MSA always had advanced and expert trails. In the last couple of years they have built more beginner/intermediate trails which are LONG and fun.

    Reminder that trail ratings are relative to the area (green, blue, black). A blue in most Quebec trail systems would easily be comparable to a black in Ontario.
