On Feb. 5, the ninth annual "Mom's Day Off," a breast cancer fundraiser sponsored by and held at Bromley Mountain, drew 420 moms and raised the hefty and record-breaking sum of $6,300. That brings the eight-year total to just over $35,000.
The notion behind the annual event is that any mom can ski or ride Bromley on "Mom's Day Off" for $15 when they show the ticket seller a snapshot of their kids. Bromley, in turn, donates the entire $15 to the VT\NH Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the Race for the Cure people. Bromley has been a sponsor of the race since 1995.
As they have since the first Mom's Day Off in 2002, the Chicks on Sticks, a group sponsored by the Alpine Sport Shop in Saratoga Springs, NY, arrived en masse, tipping 2010's "Largest Team" scales in their favor by bringing 106 moms on two chartered busses. The Women of Willard made the trip from the Willard Mountain Ski Area in Greenwich, NY, bringing the next largest group, a very respectable showing of 60 moms.
