ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
You will spend three days with highly qualified mountain guides allowing you to cover the best terrain available during your visit. A good level of fitness is required as some skinning may be involved. You will be divided into groups based on your ski standard, with this trip aimed at Intermediate (Silver) and Advanced (Purple) off piste skiers. If you are unsure of your level please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the weekend you will receive an updated grading from your Instructor 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 supper) and will be staying in twin share rooms with comfortable beds.
This holiday includes both your flights and transfers. The flights are with Swiss and depart from Heathrow Terminal 2. Ski Carriage is free of charge with Swiss and does not need to be pre-booked. Transfers to and from resort will approximately two hours.
If these travel arrangements are not convenient you can 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 Geneva and take our transfer to resort. Flight schedules can be searched on www.skyscanner.net.
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.
