When winter comes to Andermatt, the Ursern valley turns into a fantastic ski arena with 20 lifts and 125 kilometres of well-prepared pistes.
On the top of the nearly 3000 meter high Gemsstock, a spectacular panoramic view of more than 600 summits makes your heart beat faster. The Gemsstock, scene of a series of exciting events, has long been a secret amongst snowboarders and off-piste skiers, with one of the very first alpine runs created especially for carvers, the Bernhard-Russi-Run.
The ski area offers a wide range of pistes for every standard. Natschen mountain is the best bet for beginners – fast learners and improvers can then head to Gemsstock. Free riders will find the best runs in the Gotthard area.
Skipass includes skiing in the neighbour-area of Oberalp/Sedrun, as well as free transportation with the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn to Sedrun and Disentis and to Realp and Niederwald (valley of Goms). And gets you 20% off the baths in Sedrun so you can ease your weary bones.
The town itself is warm and cosy, though not a great spot for nightlife. The Spycher bar in the village centre provides tasty pizza, salads and beer for the snowheads. Accomodation can be found through the resort’s website below.
Fly from Ireland to Zurich and get the train to Andermatt station where the mountains await you.
