Ski Brule is the most family friendly place we have ever visited! They allow carry ins and accomadate the kids SO well! We had one 8 year old son who won't take lessons, but by the time we left they had convinced him to take a lesson...he actually said we were right! He loved his instructor! We stayed at Beaver Lodge Top...it was AWESOME! It was SO clean...not a speck of dust or dirt. The accomodations were so much more than we expected...all linens, plates, pans, even SPICES!! We saved so much money by eating in! We did do suppers at the lodge and at Homestead. The Homestead BBQ is something you can NOT miss! It was fun for the whole family. We would highly recommend Ski Brule!!!!
