Ski Brule

Snowmaking continues at Ski Brule. Snowmaking is not as easy as flipping a switch. It take a dedicated crew with years of experience to make the best snow there is. When snow is made right, it is impossible to tell the difference between Brule Made and Nature Made snow.

Ski Brule will have additional trails open this weekend. The challenge now is getting the HUGE ego piles of snow pushed out.

Open for snowsports Saturday and Sunday 10:30-4:00 with $25 lift tickets.

Huge thank you to the Ski Brule Snow Team! Snowbody does it better!

Thank you to all that have served.
This is George, one of the original founders of Ski Brule. 6 Months sleeping in a tent in Iceland, teaching the troops to ski for a top secret mission. They would take turns sleeping while others continued to sweep the snow off the tents. 303 Days front line combat.
Thank a veteran today for our freedom and their commitment to keeping us the land of the free.
