I've been skiing here since childhood--it's fun to take my kids now. Super friendly staff always make logistics a pleasure, including rentals, lodging, lessons.

First time skiing, the staff was wonderful - very helpful! Loved Lisa at rentals and Trish at the bar. Hot drink of the day was delicious as well :) Only disappointment was that no easy runs were open (and it was our first time skiing).

We had a wonderful time. Staff was super friendly in all areas we frequented. Not all runs were open due to a lack of snow but they are faring better than other hills in our area. Looking forward to returning for another weekend soon.

We skied at Brule 12/31-1/1/16. This was my second time here. The mountain was not overly crowded. Lift lines had little to no wait. The lodge was a little crowded, but the "small town" atmosphere is something I haven't experienced at other resorts. The employees...More
