We stayed in "Heaven's Window" chalet in March 2017. I called twice to be sure they would have what we needed in the chalet (enough towels for us etc.). I told them there was no information on the website to show what was included in the chalets, which was inconvenient for packing. When we arrived, our first impression was beautiful....

This was our first time to Ski Brule. We were a group of 18 kids and 23 adults. Jessica and her team did an outstanding job of putting together activities and dinners, and made us feel very welcome. While the ski hill may be on the smaller side, the kids (13 year olds) said it was one of their best...

I went to Ski Brule with my adolescent classmates, It was really fun and I was a really good skier after the trip. The food was great and the hills are amazing. My favorite ski kill was Homestead. There were a lot of bumps and i went really fast

Best in the Midwest (is what they say). I think, in terms of variety of slopes, this is probably true (and I am saying that as a regular skier in the Midwest for the past 18 years). Their infrastructure is a bit old, but safe and has a rustic flavor. Their Homestead lodge is a great place to eat, pulled...

They say save the best for last, but the snow conditions were not the best of the week. Staff here boast about the snow base they have, but all the runs were icy. Even so, I had fun skiing on almost every run. There is a great variety of runs here for all levels of skiing and this resort is...

So happy that you enjoyed the atmosphere! We do groom daily and try to have the best conditions possible for the weather we are given. Some times "icy" conditions are just what we are given and we know that those are not prime conditions for many. Our mountain crew is amazing and work hard to deliver the best possible conditions...

So over all we had a great trip but it was only because of the people. The skiing was good but The chalet was was just weak. First of all I get rustic and this was way beyond. The Maid service won't make your bed if you leave anything on it. This apparently includes a towel hung on the bed...

Been skiing here since high school and now enjoying taking the kids. Super friendly staff make logistics easy from lodging to rentals to lessons. Food selection is the typical totally unhealthy ski menu (unless you like iceberg lettuce!) and no safety bars or foot rests on any lifts, but it's reasonably priced and a decent Midwest skiing experience overall.

I reserved just a room for a few nights because all downtown Iron River accommodations were sold out. The room was spacious, but everything in it was somewhere between a little worn and shoddy. Ski Brule is located in a nice wooded setting, but the view from my room was across a road to a series of big buildings connected...

Brule's hills are good for anyone from beginner to pro. One course was designed by an Olympian and has great jumps. "Timberdoodle" is my favorite run. It is a black diamond that curves through the woods- very technical. The lodging is nice, but outdated. We knew this ahead of time because of the site's photos. The help was very nice,...

Overall we really liked Timber Lodge and had a good experience with the staff from Ski Brule. The BBQ at Homestead was a great deal and fun experience and the ski trip in general was a good value.

“Ski Brule is known as a winter ski resort. If you plan on staying during the summer, make sure you have something planned for the kids to do other than the resort. There are no activities for kids.”
