Daycare Session

Childcare at the Kid’s Center is available daily for children ages 1 & up.  The childcare sessions are filled with both indoor and outdoor activities that will have your child planning your next Michigan ski vacation to Ski Brule before your trip has even ended!  Snacks are provided (juice and graham crackers) during a session and lunch is available 12-1:00 (hot dog, chips & juice).  Children are welcome to bring additional beverages and snacks.

Activities For Children

It’s encouraged to bring outdoor gear for children in daycare as the children often go onto Gentle Ben trail with the SKIWee participants to watch them ski, bounce in the moonbounce, build a snowman or catch snowflakes.

Three, six and seven hour childcare sessions are filled with fun for your little one.  Story time, face painting, arts & crafts, STEM activities, outdoor activities (dependent on children ages & weather)… children will have so much fun that they will ask to stay!

If your kids aren't quite old enough for our Michigan ski slopes, Ski Brule offers daily daycare.Private Lessons For Children Under Age 4, Advanced Children Ski Lessons & Snowboard Lessons

Have a little one that would like to learn to ski not 4 years old?  Or is already a little ripper ready for the ‘big slopes’?  Perhaps snowboarding is what they crave.  Enroll your child for a one hour private lesson.  Private lessons are available daily at 9:30, 10:45, 12:00, 1:15 & 2:30 and are $55.  Advanced reservations are recommended by call 800-362-7853 because one hour lessons do fill up.  To book a private lesson upon arrival at Ski Brule, please stop in at Guest Services located on the lower level, slopeside of the Brule Lodge.

How do you know when your child is ready to start skiing?  There is no magic age to start.  If your child is balanced on their feet and wants to learn to ski … give it a try!  There have been children 10 months old ripping up the slopes at Ski Brule!  Also don’t expect hours on the snow with younger children because it typcially less time the younger they are.  Every minute on the snow with your child is amazing!
