Description

Get away from the busy commercial main resort and enjoy some of the best tree skiing in the Alps at Bruson. These two fantastic runs through the larch forest are perfect for low-visibility or bad weather day skiing. The trees are well spaced providing for easy skiing whilst still offering enough protection from the elements. From the top of the Grand Tsai chair lift, traverse high towards the South (skiers right). Drop in to either of the shallow gullies to ski through the well spaced trees. Pick up the forest path to traverse back to the La Pasay chair lift. Note: skiing in the forest further to the South than the lines marked here is strictly prohibited due to wildlife.
