Brambrüesch Skiing & Snowboarding

With 20km of piste trails over nearly 1000m of vertical, Brambruesch provides a convenient starting point to stretch the legs before heading off to bigger & better things at Arosa & Lenzerheide.  Perfect for a family friendly day out, the main base area (1595m) has beginner trails and all the facilities for a fun day. See the Brambrueesch ski trail map here.

Brambrueesch is let down by its ski lifts, particularly where a gondola links with a T-bar which links with a chairlift - an odd arrangement. Ski lift price is too expensive also, but it is Switzerland after all. Other things worth knowing include no valley run (so everyone must download on the cable car) and the snow on the lower half of the mountain between Brambrueesch & Kuernzeli may be bony, so check it out on the way up in the gondola.

A beautiful ski tour from top of the resort at Dreibuedenstein (2160m) is only a few km to Windegga at the top of the Churwalden ski lifts. Churwalden is part of the superb Lenzerheide ski resort
