The tourist office in Verbier sent us this picture last week: of work well underway on the new lift station at Le Châble.

Work started on the new eight-seater gondola from Le Châble to Bruson last October. It will open this December, carrying up to 1,200 skiers and snowboarders per hour.

Bruson has long been Verbier’s hidden secret — with amazing tree skiing for bad weather. It was previously accessed by a 20-minute bus ride. The idea for a lift link was first mooted in 1961, but local and environmental opposition has kept planning on hold until last week.

Isabelle Hefti from Verbier tourist office reports that the project is running to schedule.
