Andermatt has a well-earned reputation as one of the most snowsure resorts in Switzerland, and a freeride heaven. 

Set in the Ursern Valley, Andermatt is an attractive Swiss village with charming wooden houses and traditional churches lining the main street that runs from the central river to the cable car. Yet it has also been the subject of a CHF 1.8 billion investment in recent years, effectively doubling in size in recent years thanks to a huge influx of development that has revitalized the resort. Six new lifts now link the resort to Sedrun, allowing visitors to ski both both Andermatt to Sedrun and back, something which was not previously possible.This in turn makes the connected ski area the largest in central Switzerland. This investment has also substnatially expanded on-slope catering provisions with a range of restaurants, while further expansion of the ski in 2019 will join Andermatt-Sedrun to Disentis.

The new lifts have opened up terrain more suited to beginner and early intermediate skiers, in particular those found in Sedrun. Andermatt still remains a resort most enjoyed by adventurous off piste visitors thanks to its impressive snow record. The north-facing Gemsstock, rising to 2961m looms over the town, offer knee deep powder to satisfy the bravest of skiers. This terrain makes a popular destination for our Freshtracks holidays.
