Southeast of Geneva and Martigny in Le Chable, the Bruson ski area has 4 pistes served by three lifts accessing a maximum descent of 500m. The pistes are 48% beginner, 14% intermediate and 38% difficult. The village of Bruson is located above the town of Le Chable, and there is now a gondola connecting from the Bruson base area with the train station in the town of Le Chable. The best snowboarding in Bruson can normally be found during the months of January through March.

The very small Bruson ski area is part of the Ski St-Bernard ski region, which has six non-interconnected ski areas. There are not many hotels or restaurants in Bruson or Le Chable. A good option may be to stay in the near by town of Verbier, which has a massive ski area.

The only apres ski action is up in Verbier and apres ski tends to start alittle late, such as about 5pm. Many apres skiers even head home to change first. If its sunny out, start at the outdoor tables at Big Ben, otherwise, head inside at the Offshore cafe. Then move down the street to Fer A Cheval, and finally hit Farinet. If you happen to base out at Le Carrefour at the end of the day, try the Wax Bar. Verbier is known for its nightlife and party scene, but plan to pay to play -- it is quite expensive here. Try Le Pub Mont-Fort and then head to Tartata (call ahead to reserve a table near the dance floor). Or try the upscale Farm Club pub.

Pros
• Semi-lift connected with Verbier.
• Family-friendly ski area.



Cons
• Small ski area.
• Limited base services.
