It’s having fun in the saloon and  relaxing in front of a warm crackling fire, it’s your own private log chalet in the village.  Ski Brule is a special place that makes you forget the pressure of every day living.  It’s time to ski Michigan, the best Midwest skiing.

The finest family skiing and cruising terrain in the entire Midwest can be found on the Homestead side of Ski Brule.  Ski Michigan finest terrain in the region among mountain hardwoods, an 1890’s homestead, an apple orchard, open meadows, spruce plantations  and the Brule River providing a rich setting for a spectacular ski and snowboarding experience.

Spillway, an intermediate trail, cuts along a natural ride.  Cruise this long uninterrupted trail as it stair steps its way through a forest of northern hardwoods or pause midway to absorb the tranquility provided by the view of the meadows, spruce plantation and Brule River Valley.

Hot Cider traverses through tall timber as you descent to the orchard, a hillside meadow with scattered apple trees.  Then schuss the popple ridge down to the spruce plantation.

The Homestead Trail is a novice trail with enough terrain variety to allure the expert.  Follow the gentle, natural turns of this open slope as it flows through stands of hardwoods and evergreens.  Wander into the homestead clearing and pause at the Homestead Lodge for a hot drink.  Ski the Hemlock ridge down to the lift and do it again.  You’ll cherish this trail and the setting when you ski Michigan.  Ski Brule offers the best holiday packages for your family’s downhill skiing or snowboarding vacation.   It’s time to plan your get-a-way to the northwoods.

The view from the top looking to the north will remind one of New England’s rolling, maple covered mountains.  Brule spruce and balsam trees line the edges of the trails here, in stunning contrast to sparkling white snows.  Ski Michigan seventeen trails, each with its own unique challenge, cover more than 150 acres that make up Ski Brule.  Mile long trail will take you deep into Brule Country Forest.  Sunrise and Spillway provide scenic cursing.  Feel your pulse quicken as you stand atop the steep headwalls on Whitewater and Big Bear.  Remember when it was okay to ski through the woods?  Timber Doodle brings back those thrills and spills, without being ‘out of bounds’.  Everyone from tiny tots to senior citizens have fun on the playful challenge of its bumps, berms and turns.  Double Doodle, with its serious steeps and banked switch backs, is not for the faint of heart.  Those who choose this roller coaster must be confident of their advanced ability.
