BRULE HASN’T MISSED YET! 25+ YEARS of GREAT SNOW
Ski Brule has one of the premier snowmaking facilities in the country to ensure adequate snow for race training.
Many times Ski Brule has had the only Thanksgiving race camp that offered lift served skiing in the Midwest. 1990,
1994, 1998, 1999 & 2009 for example. In 2011, after an all night rain, salt was applied and we had two sessions

foundation. Make your plans today for Ski Brule.
