Family-friendly, sunny Brigels (Breil in Romansh, the local language) consistently scores well in assessments of small resorts, for instance winning the 2009 ADAC “Klein und Fein” award. The facilities are excellent, the pistes are beautifully groomed and there are plenty of long runs and off-piste areas for all standards of skier and snowboarder. For daytrippers, the best lift is at Waltensburg/Vuorz, about 45 very scenic minutes by train from Chur or about 2 hours by car or train from Zurich. Courtesy ski buses link Brigels and Waltensburg with the chairlifts from the valley stations. Lying halfway between Flims and Andermatt and not covered by the Snow’n’Rail scheme (although the ski pass is relatively inexpensive, especially for families), this is one resort where you will rarely wait to get on a lift or ever worry about crowded pistes.
