“We were very happy with everything we experienced at Ski Brule. The staff made all the difference. My seven year old had never seen snow. Arlen gave her a one hour lesson on the Bunny Trail and she was ‘off to the races.’ Arlen was so cool. She conquered Maple Syrup and wanted more. Everyone from the guy who did the marshmallow roast to the tubing staff was so nice! Everyone was amazing!” ~ Michael, Palm City, FL

Children Ski Lessons
The most commonly asked question is “when should I start my child skiing or snowboarding?” There is no magic age. Once your child is balanced on their feet and are interested in learning, then it’s time to sign them up for a lesson. Children are children and they tend to listen better, do better with someone other than Mom or Dad. Save yourself the stress and meltdown, let Ski Brule bring a smile to your child’s face when they realize they are skiing! Prior to the lesson, the instructional staff recommends ‘playing’ indoors with the equipment so your child becomes familiar with the gear. Try it on, walk around in it, play with the buckles … remember it’s their first time so the more comfortable they are, the better! One hour private lessons are available daily. SKIWee is a three hour ski lesson designed for ages 4-9.

“Excellent trails and instructors! We both took ski and snowboard lessons and the instructors were absolutely wonderful. We both were able to make it down the trails decently. Ski Brule offers a variety of terrain from steeper to gradual and terrain trails.” ~Meghan, New York, NY
