Brusson village in Val d'Ayas

For many years Brusson has been one of the top centres for cross country skiing but recently it has also become a leading location for biathlon; numerous international competitions have been held here over the years. The cross country trails follow the meandering course of Evançon mountain stream from Arcesaz to Extrepieraz, and then cross over to the sunny Vollon plain where a modern foyer de fond has now opened.

The downhill ski slopes are located in Estoul, over 1,700 m altitude, which basks in sunshine and stunning scenery. Great thought has been given to children: they can take ski lessons or just have plain fun in the especially designed snow park.

Summer activities in Brusson revolve around the picturesque lake and its surrounding parkland which is particularly suitable for children, sporty people... but also the lazier souls! On the first Sunday of September you must not miss the traditional Bataille de Reines – a fight between cows which establish themselves “queen of the herd” during the time spent in the summer pastures; this is held in the village of Estoul.

If you are interested in history, tradition and alpine architecture, we recommenda leisurely stroll through the countless hamlets comprising the town to admire the old, well preserved buildings.

Estoul - Palasinaz

Estoul-Palasinaz ski resort boasts modern lift and snow-making systems with approximately 18 km of runs which include 2 blue and 8 red runs served by lift and 2 chairlifts. This is heaven for families, groups, experts and anyone looking for an uncrowded ski area besides being economical as regards quality/price. Then there is cross country ski training area only 2000 metres away with two trails totalling 10 km.

There are numerous paths leading to the high peaks, not to mention the lakes where it is possible to fish, but also mountain huts and alte vie leading to the neighbouring valleys and alpine huts.
