In the heart of Europe’s Alpine region and surrounded by breathtaking mountains and valleys, Andermatt is perfectly situated in idyllic mountain scenery. Hardly any other location in Switzerland combines traditional regional values so uniquely with the vision of a luxury, state-of-the-art holiday destination.
Andermatt is one of Switzerland’s most snow-sure winter sports resorts. The different ski areas complement each other in their variety of ski slopes, altitude and level of difficulty. The SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun is undergoing huge modernisation and expansion until winter 2017/2018. New ski lifts and slopes will now join the ski areas of Sedrun and Andermatt. The largest ski region in Central Switzerland will then have over 120 kilometres of ski slopes, 24 lifts and become one of the most excisting winter destinations in Switzerland.
The Gemsstock (2,961 m) above Andermatt is an absolute delight for freeriders and lovers of steep ski slopes. It offers outstanding conditions with guaranteed snow well into the spring and wows snow sports enthusiasts with its stunning panoramic views. The ski area on the Nätschen is ideal for families. There are two chair lifts and two T-bar lifts, and the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway also goes up to the height of the middle station. It is easy to find one’s way around the ski area and the slopes have pistes of all degrees of difficulty. Even beginners feel confident starting out here.
The Oberalp Pass is used by ski enthusiasts as well as by tobogganers and winter hikers. Day tickets may be purchased and toboggans hired at the valley station. The ski area in Realp includes a ski lift and a children's lift. The children's lift covers a short distance while the ski lift follows a steeper and slightly longer route. Together they afford ideal conditions for beginners and those who wish to brush up on their skills.
A day’s skiing on the Oberalp starts with a ski lift ride up the Calmut before you ski down into the Val Val and take the chair lift to Cuolm Val. Or, the other way around, there is a chair lift that first takes you from Dieni to Milez, where you ski down to Mulinatsch before taking the six-seater chair lift. This also goes up to Cuolm Val, and from here you can either return to Dieni or proceed towards Oberalp.
Near Cuolm Val, freestylers can visit the ACE Snowpark. And there is also a snow park with children’s area and snowtubing in Sedrun. Night owls are sure to have a wonderful time on the floodlit piste during the Snow Night in Sedrun.
