Ski Brule and children go together like peanut butter and jelly! The best way to start your children skiing is at the Kid’s Center at Ski Brule. Children are introduced to skiing through fun & games with the emphasis on FUN! Children lean the fundamentals of skiing on Gentle Ben, the ‘no big people allowed’ Kid’s Center starter area. Your child will learn about equipment, walking, sliding, rope tow, stopping and carrying their gear (so you don’t have to), and getting up when they fall. By the end of the session, you will likely have a skier ready for the Bunny Trail. SKIwee includes more than just learning to ski. With one quick glance on Gentle Ben you will see children sliding down the slides, in the Moonbounce, playing with Cider the Kid’s Center bunny rabbit, playing skiing games or wiping away a hot chocolate mustache. Offered daily at the Kid’s Center (adjacent the Rental Center at Ski Brule), SKIwee offers three and six hours of fun on and off the slopes with midday lunch options. Minimum age for SKIwee ski lessons is 4 years of age.
Reservations are not necessary as sessions never stop welcoming our littlest friends.
Rental equipment for children participating in a SKIWee session is available at the Kid’s Center or at the Rental Center. Equipment rental includes helmet rental. Children enrolled in the skiing program will receive a helmet during the session. If you would like to use the helmet after the program, it is available for rental ($8) at check out or if you rented your equipment at Ski Brule, a helmet rental is included with the ski rental package. Timesaver Tip: if you arrive in the evening (prior to the Rental Center closing), you are welcome to rent your equipment for the next day that evening.
“The quality that sets Brule apart from all the other places we’ve skied is the wonderful staff that makes us all feel so welcome and helps put nervous skiers at ease. From the daycare staff who help comfort children fearful about being away from their parents; to the SKIwee teachers who show small children that they can ski if they remember ‘Pizza” and “French Fries”; it seems everyone at Brule has a personal commitment to make sure that our experience here is a good one. I feel like this level of dedication and friendliness is rare.” ~ Eric
