26″ Snow!

Powder day!What an amazing week!   26″ Fresh, fluffy snow fell Tuesday/Wednesday.  The conditions are incredible and I was lucky enough to get out yesterday.  Someone else enjoyed the fresh snow on Otterslide.  The mountain crew left fresh stashes of snow on Otterslide, Whitewater and Big Bear.  Needless to say those that rode yesterday were smiling ear to ear.  The conditions are out of this world!  This is the weekend to cancel your plans and pack your bags to head to Ski Brule.  Weather is calling for high of 25 too!

This weekend is filled with fun!  Whitewater snow tubing, karaoke, live music, BBQ, tubing, sleigh ride and night skiing!  It’s time to play!

SNOW .. SNOW .. SNOW!

I don’t know what we did to deserve all this fresh fluffy snow but we will take it!  Thank you Mother Nature for the new 8″ of snow and another 24″ expected in next 36 hours.  This weekend is going to be AMAZING!  I can’t wait to get my work done today and take some turns…. wait .. better idea, skip the work … I’m going skiing!

We are already half way through February!  Wow this month whipping by. Before you know it, March will arrive and so will the sunshine and the best snow of the year!  I love skiing in March.  Absolutely the best snow of the year is found in March.   Plus lots of fun activities.

It’s Not Cold … It’s Winter! Enjoy it!

It’s Not Cold … It’s Winter! Enjoy it!
I’ve been amazed at the number of phone calls asking if we are going to be open this weekend with the cold temperatures or if the Boy Scout Day will be cancelled…… Ski Brule will be open! And the temperature Saturday is NOT frigid. Weather Channel was showing high of 14 Saturday. That’s Winter isn’t it? Much better than January 5 years ago when it was a month of -25 degrees! Even at -25 degrees you can have a great day on snow … IF you are dressed right. Today’s technology is fantastic and there truly is no reason to be cold on the snow. Sure, you may have to take a few more breaks on colder days but so what. My guess is that there will be no lift lines and you will get so many runs in that your legs turn to jello.

Ski Ya this weekend! It’s going to be great! No such thing as a bad day on snow, only bad gear!

100% Open!

It’s officially the weekend and we are OFFICIALLY 100% OPEN!

17 out of 17 hills are ready for you to ride. Our mountain men succeeded once again. We’re all so thankful for them.

If you’ve never spent the Holidays here at Ski Brule you might want to reconsider your traditions and start some new ones! We have a jam packed full of fun schedule with a ton of activities for all ages.  Or of course there is always the option to lay low and just enjoy one another. This is my favorite time of year here and I love seeing each of you enjoy it in your own ways. My go to way to enjoy the holidays is to eat my weight in cookies and ski the calories off. HAHA

Skiing With Mom

12/18/18

Nothing better than hitting the slopes with your Mom.  I can assure you, that first turn with your Mom will bring a smile to her face.  Why not give her the gift of a day on snow with you?  Buy $39 advanced lift tickets and save $10/ticket.   $39 Advanced Lift Ticket Sale ends on 12/24 so don’t wait too long to purchase.  I skied with my Mom, Colt and husband on Sunday … what a wonderful day!  And my Mom was smiling ear to ear.  In today’s world, it’s so easy to lose track of the important things in life … spending time together.  That’s really all your Mom or Dad wants for the holidays.

 

Happy Holidays

~Jess & #coltgeorge

Days are flying by and the holiday season is already almost here.

I’m more than ready for all of Ski Brule’s activities over the next couple weeks. There’s something about marshmallow roasts, tradition tubing, and Homestead BBQs. The good food, lots of laughter, and so many smiles make me a kind of happy that is only around for the holidays. I feel like you know exactly what I mean. It’s the simple things that really leave an impression on me.

I am grateful to be here for all of the little things. I am also extremely grateful for our mountain crew. After busting their butts all week I am anticipating they’ll have 16 of 17 hills open this weekend. That includes the terrain. Homestead Lodge will be open too and that is something you don’t want to miss!

Come feel, see, and experience what I mean.

Sincerely, “The Other Blonde”

It’s CMSC Weekend!

12/6/18

I can’t even describe how excited I am for this weekend!  My CMSC Friends … no … my CMSC Family are coming to visit.  It’s a weekend of great snow, laughter, dancing and of course amazing ski racing!  I think this is CMSC’s 24th season racing at Ski Brule.  Why?  Because Ski Brule can guarantee them snow, great racing and the best hospitality ANYWHERE!

Santa is visiting this weekend too!  On the slopes and in the lodge Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday.

Get your singing voice ready … it’s Karaoke at Brule Saloon Saturday night.

Hoping for 100%

The “Monday Morning Blues” is nonexistent here because we just got hit with more snow!

Yesterday was beautiful and we measured a total of 8 inches of fresh snow and this morning we woke up to about 3″ more. The snow making crew is still working extremely hard though and we are so hopeful that this weekend (12/8) the hills will be 100% open. That means that Homestead Lodge could be open this weekend too. You know what that means, mid run hot cocoa…mid run spiked hot cocoa. Everything is weather dependent of course!

I’ve been enjoying these warmer temperatures and shedding a layer. Finally getting use to the “cold” and my long johns aren’t as important anymore!! Come find me on the hill, my skiing is improving and I no longer live on Maple Syrup haha

Loving the snow.

Sincerely, “The Other Blonde”

 

Opening Day 2018/19

11/12/18

It doesn’t matter how many year’s I’ve been here for opening day … I still get soooooo excited to hear the roar of Big Bear and all the familiar faces coming to ride.  It was an amazing day!  Over 500 guests helped celebrate opening day.  Snow was great and rails/boxes were set on Bambi trail.  Lots of fun for everyone!

The snowmaking weather looks amazing so I expect more trails open for the weekend.  Plan now to play and your lift ticket is ONLY $25!   11/16-11/18 lift tickets are $25 for adult and juniors.  Regular rates begin 11/19.

Ski Brule will have more open terrain and better snow than anywhere else for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Plan to visit your Ski Brule this holiday.
