Ski Brule is the 2013 OnTheSnow Visitors' Choice Award winner for the Best Nightlife in the Midwest. The low-key aprés-ski scene in Brule is all about family, friends and hearty food.
Food and drinks are served at the Homestead Lodge and the Hillside Dining room. Dating back to 1891, the Homestead Lodge has the built-in coziness of a family homestead and is heated by potbelly stoves. It can be reached by skiing the Homestead or North Forty trails.
WHERE TO GO FOR LIVE MUSIC: The mid-mountain Homestead Lodge features live music every Saturday during the holidays at its 'all you care to eat' barbecue. The 'all you care to eat' dinner includes Ski Brule's famous pulled pork, barbecue chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, baked beans, sauerkraut, salad, dessert, rolls, apple sauce and a beverage. Take the free sleigh ride from the bottom of Homestead Trail to the Homestead Lodge on Saturday nights.
WHERE TO GO FOR DRINKS: A selection of hot and cold beverages are available on the deck of the Homestead Lodge. Huddle with friends around the pot belly stoves and share tales of your day on the mountain. Alternatively, drinks are also available at the Brule Cafe.
