Ski Brule, along the Michigan/Wisconsin border near Iron River, has been having a great season so far, and is hosting some fun events later this month.  They’ve managed to stay 100-percent open all season with plenty of snow despite a wimpy Midwest winter.

 

The Brule Bash and Olympian Nick Baumgartner’s Rail Jam is slated to take place March 24-25.  The Spring Break Special, which runs March 22 through April 11, is offering $25 off per person, per night on lift and lodging packages.  A special lift and lodging package is available the weekend of March 24-25 starting from $70 per person, per night, based on double occupancy.  A two-night stay is required for both specials. 

 

The Brule Bash is always a weekend full of fun events.  You get half-off lift tickets if you come in full costume, and the daily costume contest winner receives a 2012/13 Ski Brule season pass.  That’s a great incentive to dress up.

 

Games and contests throughout the weekend include a treasure hunt, moonbounce, mattress race, potato sack race, egg toss, silly slalom, snow bowling, snow volleyball and a three-leg race.  It doesn’t say if that includes skis.  Other activities include a petting zoo, face painting, groomer rides, torchlight parade on Saturday night, sled dog rides and karaoke in the lounge. 

 

Baumgartner will be available at the social hour and dinner following the Saturday Rail Jam to sign autographs and talk with fans.  You can also ride with him on Sunday. Lift tickets for the event are $25.

 

Ski Brule plans on remaining open through mid-April.
