Southeast of Zurich and just southwest of Chur, the Brambrüesch ski area has ten pistes totaling 20km that area served by three lifts accessing a descent of 1,000m. The north-facing groomed pistes cover a wide range of difficulties. In addition, there are two off-piste backcountry snowboarding routes from the Dreibuendenstein top station that are best explored with a guide. The west route leads down past Skihutte Term Bel on the way to Domat/Ems. The east route leads towards either Malix or to Churwalden.

The Brambruesch ski area is accessed from Chur via cable car, which leads up to Brambruesch while passing through a mid-station. Most of the snowboarding is above Brambruesch, but you can ride back down to the mid-station. There are two challenging ungroomed ski touring routes leading to Stadeli and to Windegga. There are sport hotels located up on the mountain in Brambruesch.
