Bruson is a ski resort in the Val de Bagne valley, at an altitude of 1080m. The slopes have a north-east exposure, opposite the nearby resort of Verbier, which ensures good snow cover during the winter period. An 8-seater gondola lift links Le Châble and Les Mayens de Bruson. It is now possible for skiers to park their cars in the large car park at Le Châble and drive directly to Bruson without having to use the road.
The Bruson ski area stretches along the slopes of the Val de Bagne between 1,500 m and 2,200 m above sea level, with a view of the neighbouring resort of Verbier. Both resorts are part of the Quatre Vallées ski area, the largest linked ski area in Switzerland and the third largest in Europe: 412 km of runs and ski itineraries await you, of which a good half are of medium to difficult level; beginners as well as professional skiers will find something to suit them. The Bruson ski area itself has 40 km of runs, including 2 blue runs, 7 red runs and 2 black runs (+3 itineraries). The resort is also very popular with off-piste skiers due to the very location of the large areas of fresh powder that extend beyond the forest, offering many possibilities. Hikers can take advantage of a few marked snowshoe trails, but the vast majority are from Verbier. A paragliding school for extreme sports enthusiasts completes the winter offer of the ski resort of Bruson.
To relax and regain strength after all these adventures in the snow, Bruson offers a few restaurants: the Restaurant de la Moay and the buvette de la Pasay, located in the middle of the slopes, and Chez Valérie! The local cuisine is rather substantial (fondue, raclette, cured meats, etc.), so there is plenty to fill up on after a day of skiing. In terms of accommodation, the offer in Bruson is a little less important than that of its big sister VerbierThere are a number of hotels, but you will find a bed and breakfast (Chez Philippin) as well as a few mountain chalets close to the slopes. If you wish to stay in a hotel or rent a flat, you will have to fall back on Verbier. This last is of all ways accessible in just a few minutes from Bruson since the development of the gondola lift during the winter of 2013/14.
