Ski Brule, a longtime Midwest family favorite, is holding its season pass sale, and prices will be going up next week. An adult season pass will jump from its current price of $343 to over $400 Oct. 5. You have one week left to lock in the low price.
A junior (10-17) pass is currently $263, senior (60+) is $250, and family pass - two adults and up to four dependent children ages 17 and under - is $792. All of these prices will be going up Oct. 5.
As Midwest skiers and riders have learned in past years, a Brule season pass is a wise investment. You can count on plenty of time to use it. They normally post the longest snow sports season in the Heartland.
The resort stayed open 182 days during the 2005-06 season, which is the record for longest season mid-continent. The area normally opens in early November and stays open well into April. Opening date is targeted for Nov. 12 this year conditions permitting.
Ski Brule offers a variety of terrain - slopes, terrain parks, terrain trails and halfpipes - that flows off a 500-foot ridge. Many of the trails are sequestered in trees keeping them separate from the wide, boulevard-like slopes, which are often busy on weekends. They have been selected as the Midwest's Favorite Ski Area by readers in OnTheSnow Visitor's Choice Awards poll the last three seasons in a row.
