This winter we are exploring ski areas close to Zurich and Luzern. This weekend we visited a new ski aeea, Brunni Alpthal. There are a couple of larger ski areas in the same region as well, Sattel Hochstuckli and Hoch -Ybrig.
How do you get there?
Brunni is a smaller ski area in the region but fairly easy to access due to its proximity to Einsiedeln. It is only 45 min by car from Zurich. Once you get to the parking lot, you can be on the slopes within 10 min. And the views of Grosser Mythen are available even in the parking lot.
Brunni is a good place for beginners and those who want to practice their basics. We only tried the blue slopes this time. More practice needed for the red slopes 😀 The top can be reached by T-bar only. There aren’t any cable cars yet the views from the top are amazing
For those who don’t ski, there are some great hiking, snow shoe trails where you can go knee deep in the powder
How much does it cost?
Brunni is very affordable. A half day pass was 25 CHF and ski rental was 35 CHF.
