ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
This trip includes six days with mountain guides. You’ll be split into groups of 6/7 based on your ski profile. This trip is aimed at Advanced (Purple) and Expert (Gold) off piste skiers. If you are unsure of your ski level, please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the week, you will receive an updated grading from your Guide or Ski Club Rep.
The 3* Sporthotel Sonne is a simple yet comfortable, family run hotel, perfectly located in Andermatt, just metres from the Gemsstock Cable Car. You’ll be catered for on a half board basis (breakfast and dinner) and will be staying in twin share rooms with comfortable beds.
This holiday includes both your flights and transfers. The flights are with BA and depart from London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 to Zurich. Ski carriage is payable at the airport only and cannot be pre-booked. Your Ski Club Rep will coordinate the coach transfer from the airport, so please look out for them in the main arrivals hall – they will be wearing their blue Ski Club jacket. Transfers to and from resort will take approximately 2 - 3 hours.
If these travel arrangements are not convenient, you may be eligible to organise your own travel and receive a nominal discount from the holiday cost. Furthermore, if you can find alternative flights that coincide with our flight times then you can meet the group at the airport and take our transfer to resort. Please contact the Freshtracks office on 020 8410 2022 in order to discuss this further.
Set in the Urseren Valley, Andermatt is an attractive Swiss village with charming wooden houses and traditional churches lining the main street. Andermatt has effectively doubled in size in recent years thanks to a huge influx of development that has revitalized the resort. The Ski Arena Andermatt-Sedrun project delivered a flood of luxury hotels and apartments, as well as six new lifts linking the resort to Sedrun. This in turn makes the connected ski area the largest in central Switzerland. For more information on Andermatt please visit the Andermatt Resort Guide.
For ski hire we recommend Alpina Sport just across from the hotel, they open at 8.00am in the morning. If you want to get in contact with them prior to arrival to check availability please email: email@example.com.
