“We love coming to Ski Brule! It is such a great place. The staff is so friendly and helpful. We were up for New Year’s Eve and the dinner was great! The fireworks display was amazing. Every time we come to Ski Brule they take the time to talk to my daughter about her day and if she is having fun. Whether is be Jess or other staff, they really seem to care. When signing her up for her first snowboard lesson, one of the staff noticed she was a little unsure and she asked Isabell to come to tell her how it went when she was done. IT made Isabell very happy that she cared how her lesson went.” ~ Heather, Green Bay, WI
