Ski Brule, near Iron River in Michigan’s Western Upper Peninsula, loves its reputation as the first to open and last to close in Michigan, and this year it’s loving it even more, with mid-winter snow depths of up to five feet still on its runs.

Because it foresees skiing until sometime in late April, and possibly longer, it’s offering some smokin’ late-season deals and fun to boot.

Do Brule for $30 per night per person for the rest of the season, including lift tickets. There’s a three-night minimum, and the minimum capacity of the unit must be filled. For example, if you brought 11 of your closest friends to stay in one of Brule’s chalets, you’d normally pay $942 per night. Get the same deal for just $360 per night now, a $582 per night savings, or $1,746 over the three-night minimum.

The same savings applies to two people in a lodge room. If you come up with three for a four-person room, your rate will be $120 a night, still a huge savings over normal.

If you come up to ski only, ride or ski for $25 a day, $17 off the normal rate.

Grab one of Brule’s free Friends and neighbors cards and take part in the fun all this week, with events including cookouts and on-slope games. Kids aged 9 and under get free rental equipment and lunch, and all card-carrying members get free snow tubing throughout the winter. Bring your cross-country skis, too, as Brule has its own trail network

April 7, when many Midwest ski areas close, Brule’s just getting started with its carload day. Pile as many friends and family into your vehicle and ski or ride for just $60.

On this Wednesdy through Sunday, make a leap of faith, or several, into a giant air bag during the Acrobag Progression Tour. it's only $5 a jump, or $25 per day.
