Ring in the New Year at this resort renowned for its impressive snow record and providing you with access to plenty of exhilarating terrain. It is no wonder Andermatt has been a favourite with our off piste Ski Club groups for many years!
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.
When participating in a Purple/Gold off piste holiday you should be prepared to do some ski touring at some point during the trip. Where possible the lift system will be used to access off piste terrain, however if you need to venture a bit further afield in order to access the best off piste conditions, then your guide may suggest ski touring. This will all be dependent upon conditions and the guides you have on your trip.
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) throughout your stay.
This holiday is on a twin share basis. If you are a solo traveler, then you will be placed in a room with someone of the same gender. Single rooms may be available upon request. These are subject to our hotel room allowance. If you require a single room, please book early to avoid disappointment.
This holiday includes both your flights and transfers. The flights are with SWISS and depart from London Heathrow Airport 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 hours.
If these arrangements are not convenient, you can organise your own travel and may be eligible to 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 transfers to resort. Please do not book any alternative flights or travel until your holiday has been confirmed to run. 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 and adds further terrain to what was already a fantastic ski area. 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.
If you own your own ski touring equipment, then it may be worth taking this with you on your trip. If you do not own your own kit, then this can normally be easily rented in resort. However, please be aware of the cost of hiring this equipment in resort.
