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.
The Brule Bash is slated for March 19-20. The Spring Break Special, which runs March 22 through April 11, is offering $25 off per person, per night. Daily lift tickets must be purchased separately for the stay and a two night minimum stay is required.
An adult daily lift ticket is $40 and a junior (10-17) is $34. Kids nine and under ski/ride for free. If you purchase a two-day adult ticket you save $6 and $3 on a junior multi-day pass. A three-day lift ticket saves $10 off the daily price for an adult; no further savings for a junior lift ticket.
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 2011-12 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. Whew, that's a full weekend slate to keep you and the kids busy.
Ski Brule likes to promote winter fun, according to Jessica Pollich, part owner.
"We've seen whole families show up in costume. The Bash is great fun and conditions are near perfect this winter," she told OnTheSnow. "We haven't missed more than a handful of days since December without snow. It's been one of our best winters in recent years."
Ski Brule plans on remaining open through mid-April.
