Love what you do!

Love what you do and the rewards are amazing! I choose to work 6 days a week during the winter, it’s busy and I enjoy my “job.” While most people stay far away from work on days off, I find myself here enjoying it from a different perspective. My days off are spent on the hill skiing with my 7 year old son Asen, other family and friends.  Yesterday was one of the best days that I have had on snow with Asen. He ditched me and road up the chairlift with a friend, first time riding without an adult… scared me and of course he loved it! Because I wasn’t riding the chair with him I road with other guests out skiing/boarding and I got asked the same question numerous time, “why are you here on your day off?!” Simple answer is, I love it here. I enjoy everyone I work with and I love seeing guests having fun.  Working for a ski resort geared towards families makes working here rewarding in so many ways but the one that hits home for me the most is that when my son walks in the door he is greeted like family by everyone who works here and I know that he has so many people watching over him if I am not right there.  When you love what you do, work seems less like “work” and more like a lifestyle. I’m happy to say, I love life.

Live the life you love,

Ski Wee

Looking for a way to make sure your kids are having a good time while you’re out on the hill? SKI WEE! At Ski Wee, we make sure that your child/children (age four and older) are taken care of with rental, lift ticket, and lesson. We also offer childcare to those under age four.

While we teach them the basics of skiing, our priority is to make sure everyone is having a fun time and ensure safety throughout the day!

We offer two lesson times during the day: 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm, with lunch in between.

Aside from skiing, we make sure that small breaks are available to allow some rest time. These breaks include: playing on the slide and in the bouncy house, and coming inside for hot chocolate and graham crackers as well.

Face paintings, temporary Ski Brule tattoos, bubbles, and so much more are included in your child’s visit to Ski Wee.

We can’t wait to see you soon!

“We just spend a long weekend at Ski Brule over the holiday. The snow was great and the staff was equally awesome. I swear the Allie must live at the resort, first person we saw each morning and last one we saw every night. Always had a smile on her face and one of the nicest people we have met at any resort we’ve ever been to and wow can that girl ski. Food was good, lost of options for a ski resort. Trisha in the bar was very nice and even though it was busy in there she was quick and personable. We will be back!”

Ski Brule’s first Boy Scout Winter Merit Badge day is coming up quickly! On Saturday, December 16th, Boy Scouts will hit the mountain to learn resort safety and learn how to ski or snowboard. The Boy Scout Day is a great opportunity for the Scouts to work toward, or even earn, their Winter Merit Badge! The day starts off with a short class all about resort safety, after the class we hit the mountain for a day of snow filled fun learning how to ski or snowboard from a great group of talented instructors.  You can come as a family or with your troop! For more information or to sign up you can head to our events section of the website or give us a call at 1-800-362-7853.  Although the class portion is for the Scouts, Ski Brule doesn’t leave out the family!

Best Ski Package On Sale

The BEST ski package on sale now at the Bear’s Den Pro Shop.  The best purchase you can make (after buying a Ski Brule lift ticket) is owning your own gear.  Sure you can rent and I recognize that we don’t all have $499 sitting around waiting to be spent on a new ski package … but .. it’s sooooooo worth it!

Ski Package Should Be Pain FREE!

Ski Brule offers some of the best in rental equipment at the Rental Center but it’s not the same as having your own gear.  The biggest factor are ski boots.  They can make your day amazing or make it miserable.  Why?  It’s not because rental equipment is ‘junk’.  It’s because not all boots are created equal.  Especially boots for women.  Going back many years ago, women ski boots were the same as men .. just painted pretty.  A good friend and ‘Bruler’ Jeannie Thoren taught me 15 years ago about why the boot companies needed to start building boots for women.  Thankfully she also taught me how to make boots fit better and why it was so important to have truly women boots.

Jeannie Thoren Ski Package Boot Fitting at it's best“WOMEN ARE NOT SMALL MEN

Jeannie Thoren is a skier with a mission, a crusader for women skiers everywhere. As a competitor, she found that to perfect her own skiing she needed to make some serious adjustments to her ski equipment. While customizing her own equipment, she realized that she wasn’t the only woman skier experiencing the problems she was encountering.

She has spent the last 30 years researching the way women ski. The Thoren Theory evolved as a way to help women skiers radically improve their technique through equipment modification. Jeannie Thoren didn’t start out to save the world, she just wanted to be a better skier. Along the way she found herself revolutionizing the thinking of an entire industry. Join Jeannie and her staff and become the skier you’ve always wanted to be.

Let’s find out if I can help improve your skiing.” ~ Jeannie Thoren

I’ve personally have impacted many, many, many women’s love of the sport over the past 20 years by making their feet happy.  Women’s feet and calves should NOT hurt when skiing.  The staff at Bear’s Den is the best there is in fitting women’s boots, without draining your pocketbook.  Skis, boots, poles, bindings and mounting package is $499.  And the best part is that you can try them before buying!  One hour free ski demo at the Bear’s Den.  The Bear’s Den staff knows our gear and will have you on the slopes, enjoying your new ski package in about 1.5 hours from the time you walk in the door.

Not ready for a new ski package?  But ready for some pain relief?  The Bear’s Den Pro Shop staff at Ski Brule has a pretty close to 100% success rate in making adjustments to your boots that result in a pain free day.  And this service is FREE unless we have to add a heel lift or different buckle to your boot.  We want your feet happy!  Why?  Because you will come skiing more often and hopefully share your love of the sport with another … helping to grow the sport of skiing.

Yes, I am passionate about making sure boots don’t hurt.  I vividly remember in high school having boots that hurt my feet and calves so badly that I’d have to unbuckle before getting on the lift and could not ski very long without pain.  Thankfully I kept skiing and met Jeannie Thoren … my feet have never been the same!
