Ski holidays in Brand & Bürserberg

Nestling beneath the spectacular Brandner glacier, with the Rätikon mountains providing a stunning and picturesque backdrop. Bürserberg and its better known neighbour Brand (only 4km away) nestle beneath the spectacular Brandner glacier, with the Rätikon mountains providing a stunning and picturesque backdrop.

The villages offer a good selection of leisure activities, from relaxing horse-drawn sleigh rides and cleared trails for winter walks, to more energetic pursuits such as ice-climbing and paragliding. Après-ski is informal and lively with a few bars, pubs and a nightclub. This popular destination represents excellent value for money amidst beautiful scenery and enjoys a pleasant, informal atmosphere with the added pleasure of not being commercial.

The area lift pass covers the skiing in both Brand and Bürserberg, together with a free ski bus running between the Palüd and Niggenkopf chairlifts. The wide-open slopes found above both villages offer an excellent choice of runs for novices and lower intermediate skiers, who, as they progress, will appreciate the benefit of the well-arranged lift systems, which will whisk them to some very enjoyable undulating blue runs through the trees. Although this is not a resort for the advanced skier, there is a little off-piste skiing available, as well as some more challenging black runs.
