Between Brusson and Estoul you can find 30 Km of slopes, and there is also a project to connect them to Champoluc. The area hosts also the regional contest called “Coppa Consiglio Valle d’Aosta” (Aosta Valley Council Cup) and national and international biathlon contests. Alpine skiing slopes are located between 1,750 and 2,250 meters of altitude, in Estoul-Palasinaz resort. Estoul is a wide natural terrace, it enjoys a good solar exposure, a good altitude and natural snow, and it is located among larches and Norway spruces woods. Eighty per cent of alpine skiing slopes use a snowmaking system. From Estoul, at the foot of Mount Bieteron, alpine slopes descend gently towards Punta Palasina. Many of the mountains in this area are ski mountaineering destinations; all the routes start from Estoul and are for professionals, like Mount Nery (3075 m) or Corno Vitello (3057 m), or for beginners, like Mount Bieteron (2764 m) or Punta Palasinaz (2782 m). Brusson lays in the middle of Ayas Valley, at 1338 meters of altitude; the town is divided in three neighborhoods, named Pasquier, La Pila and Fontaine, that’s why the cross-country slope is called “Trois Villages” (Three villages). Some towns maintained their traditional alpine look, thanks to their well-preserved ancient buildings. Speaking of tradition, the local Tourist Office organizes popular events devoted to ancient tasks, tools and costumes.
