Brule swiped OnTheSnow.com’s 2008 & 2009 Visitor’s Choice Favorite Resort in the Midwest and didn’t stop there. Brule offers 30 acres of the newly designed Bambi Playground terrain park equipped with rails, boxes, and tricky toys. The mountain offers first-time riders free lessons, passes, and rental equipment. This popular program fills up quickly so enroll today. Brule promises again to be the first to open and last to close—the mountain averages 164 skiable days each winter—and, thanks to ever-increasing snowmaking capacity, is always a sure bet for sweet powder.
So what are you waiting for? Nab a made-to-order breakfast at the Brule Café and hit the slopes. Just don’t forget to sign on for a groomer-drawn sleigh ride to the Homestead Barbecue—a perfect end to a perfect day. $40 adults, $34 juniors, kids are free.
Village hayride and marshmallow roast every Tuesday. Reservations required. March 24-25 means the Brule Bash, a wild celebration of the white stuff that features snow volleyball, snow bowling, dogsled rides and mattress races.
Family lift ticket for the season: two adults, up to 4 children, $156. Click here for more ski deals at Northern Michigan resorts.
