The number of different areas accessible from Andermatt’s base station means that no matter what the conditions a local guide will be able to seek out some fresh snow. Slopes of varying aspects and steepness surround the town and are quickly accessible by a modern lift system which is continuously under development (a link with neighbouring Sedrun is planned to open in 2018/19). Much of the best off piste terrain can be found above the trees on the north faces of the Gemmsstock peak, which stands tall amongst its immediate neighbours, some spectacular rugged and challenging descents can be made here, not for the feigned hearted!
Whilst Andermatt is best suited to off piste skiing and touring, the 120km+ of mostly challenging pistes surrounding the resort are enough to keep most mile hungry piste skiers satisfied. This quiet corner of the Swiss Alps is the ultimate playground for any intermediate and advanced skier.
Freshtracks run a number of weekend and full week trips to Andermatt guided by Andrea and his team, find out more below.
