“Dear Jess and Ski Brule Staff, First and foremost I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU for an absolutely perfectly run USSA Spring Championship race this past weekend at Ski Brule.  As a USSA family we have traveled to 10 different resorts in 4 different states this season, and while the midwest is blessed to have a lot of nice choices for skiing, I have to say definitively that Ski Brule offers the best of everything I have seen!  From the friendly Ski Brule Staff, to the well kept facilities, to the snow AND timing of grooming, to the apres ski programs, and the variety of terrain and lift offerings, Ski Brule wins in EVERY category.  You do everything well!  Any family that gets the opportunity to visit your resort is set to have a truly first class experience, you should be extremely proud of the team you have assembled!  Thank you so much for a fantastic experience! Sincerely, John W Moore”
