Skiing With Mom


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!


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


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.

Nothing like 4″ of new snow to get you in the mood for ripping up the slopes!  It was a winter wonderland yesterday.  Snowed all day and it was game on by the afternoon.  Giggles, laughter and snowball fight brought smiles to our faces.   It was a rough ride home from the resort too.  Guess I need to remember how to drive in the snow .. yes I slid sideways!  And I was in 4 wheel drive.  Unfortunately the sound of rain on the roof started around 8pm and by morning, the beautiful blanket of snow was just a happy memory.


Snowmaking looks marginal this week based on the current forecast.  Get out and do your cold weather dance because we are ready to play!

We have Boy Scout Day’s here. It’s a very unique opportunity for Scouts to earn their Boy Scout Winter Merit Badge while having a fun day with their family! Our first one is December 15th. Then there will be another one January 19th and again March 30th. Families have to preregister!        The Scout and Family Package will save you and  your family over $60 so I wouldn’t miss it! There’s limited availability too so first come first serve.

Check out this fun group from last year!

Thinking It’s Spiked Hot CoCoa Season

October 15,2018

Halloween isn’t even here yet and I look like a ninja every morning. My long johns came out of the closet last week and they’re not going away any time soon. The SNOW is here and so they will stay. Ski season is creeping up on us and I am not mad. Our target opening is November 9th and with a forecast of even more snow I’m confident I’ll be seeing all of you on the slopes very soon. I’m sitting in my office with a view of Big Bear and, as pretty as it is now, it looks a lot better with you guys coming down it.

A group of us will be at the Windy City Ski & Snowboard Show this weekend near Chicago. Come see us! There will be exclusive lift ticket offers, prizes, and some of your favorite Ski Brule smiles of course.
