Bruson is epic, there’s fresh snow and more to come. (Oh and it’s nearly time to start tanning…)


We have mentioned it before but Bruson is a gem. OK you need to leave Verbier and all that makes Verbier epic – always a tough decision.

But it’s only a couple of lifts (far quicker than heading the opposite direction to the 4 Valleys) and you get empty pistes, no queues and on days like today the conditions are perfect – plus there’s powder after Verbier has all but run out and usually visibility when Verbier is cloudy.

I mean, why wouldn’t you?

Now, its’ also a bit of a secret, but we have grown to feel we can trust you. So just keep it to yourself.

Oh, and we can also tell you that the terrain is epic – it’s like Savoleyres if you put Savoleyres on steroids. And sent it to a beautician.

Which is precisely why we ski there on our rare days off and why Rich, Gina and I nipped up for a few hours today. Grins were huge and even the odd high speed tumble couldn’t wipe them off…

But it’s not all about Bruson

No, as much as we act as the self-appointed Bruson Tourist Office there is news in Verbier and beyond – yup it’s been snowing again. And is set to continue with enthusiasm.

In a season when the start was “muted” to put it politely, it’s actually turned into something of a corker. And it’s due to dump this week, so as the sunshine starts to beat down from now until the end of April it’s time to enjoy the snow and build up a cracking tan while you’re at it.

Should you be pondering a bit of Easter or spring skiing, I hope that tips you over the edge. We can even take you to Bruson to make sure you tan in peace and quiet…

PS There’s a free lesson if you can spot anyone else on the pistes apart from us – and no, the liftie in the last picture doesn’t count… Or the two people touring on the Six Blanc.
