Brigels Waltensburg Andiast Skiing & Snowboarding

The great pleasure of skiing or snowboarding Brigels is that it provides uncomplicated terrain and full skiable vertical while utilising only a small number of ski lifts. Not counting the main learn to ski area slightly detached from the main ski hill near the Pradas Resort, the entire mountain is effectively served by three chairlifts.

Broad swathes of rolling intermediate piste trails stream down the entire 1,300m vertical from the high alpine into lightly wooded hay barn territory down low. The 50km of piste trails ski BIGGER than excepted & will keep one's interest for quite some time.

See here for the Brigels ski trail map.

Ski Lifts

Brigels chair lifts are on the slower side of the ledger, but there is no rush, so enjoy the ride & scenery. A fourth chair runs only rarely & is locally called the 'romantic' chair due to its lack of pace allowing ample time for relationship forming (or destruction!). The advanced terrain its serves is accessible via other lifts, so whether it runs or not is neither here nor there.

Lift Pass

Ski lift passes at Brigels are dynamically priced online, so anything pre-purchased can mean huge reductions on the price, depending on how much demand there is. Lift prices at the ticket window are still fixed- so you get what you given!

Snowboarding Brigels

The resort is generally snowboard friendly, with only one traverse & a couple of T-bars causing any potential issues.

Off-Piste, Freeride & Backcountry

Every inch of Brigels is skiable off piste. Ripping long fast lines in alpine powder then picking one's way through light trees, past hay barns & into the valley is an absolute joy. Competition for fresh tracks is non-existent.

More information on Skiing & Snowboarding Brigels Ski Resort is coming soon when we find a few moments.

Just go & ski here for a day or two midweek to experience the bliss of a brilliant traditional Swiss ski resort.
