Date of publication Winter 2018-2019

The small resort of Bruson sits snugly on the western side of Bagnes valley opposite Verbier (a gondola runs between the two) and is a perfect haven for those aspiring to the quiet life in among the forest. It’s a great place to ski in the morning as the rising sun hits the slopes, and on snowy days when slopes everywhere else turn to mush. Freeriders flock here every year for a spectacular contest on the slopes of Six-Blanc and La Pointe de Sésal (35-45°). This year it will be held on 16th February and end with a musical flourish at the Yeti Party.
