Sunny Saturday at Brusson ski

Brusson ski / Estoul
Saturday's weather was excellent and we decided to take a look on another part of the Monte Rosa. Our destination for the day was Brusson ski that is located in Estoul. Brusson ski is yet another of the several skiresorts beloning into the Monte Rosa ski. 

Getting to the Brusson ski goes through a small Brusson village that is located on 1330 meters. To get to the actual resort we had to drive up to 1800 meters into Estoul. Driving up to Estoul is easy on a sunny day when the road is dry. But things can get tricky after a snow dump on a slippery and narrow mountain road.


Saturday noon seemed to be a popular time for families to spend time out. Because of that sides of the roads were reserved for parking, legal or not. But there was a more convenient free parking just 500 meters further from the center of Estoul.

When it comes to slopes and lifts Estoul is similiar to Antagnod, except that the there was no black slope and generally all slopes were slightly easier. Brusson ski has two chairlifts for the red and blue slopes and two baby lifts for the easy beginner lines.

2235 meters.
For our surprice the resort didn't felt crowded at all and most of the time we just walked straight into the chairlifts without any waiting. Snow conditions were also great for March and the overall atmosphere was relaxed. Brusson ski has also some potential for easy off piste skiing when there is more snow. Most propably these are the hidden places where you can find your own untouched lines when the powder dump hits.

No powder.
