Located in the heart of the Swiss Alps, the Andermatt ski resort boasts beautiful scenery, making for the ultimate 'chocolate box' setting. Considered a 'hidden gem' in the Alps, it has an excellent yearly snow record, plus a long ski season that extends from the end of October to the beginning of May.
Andermatt has built a firm reputation as an experienced skier’s favourite retreat, eagerly frequented by winter sport enthusiasts over the last 100 years. As central Switzerland’s largest ski resort, Andermatt’s sprawling space is put to good use, with plenty on winter sports activities in the mountains, plus lots of off-piste terrain. You're not just limited to days of skiing, either. Off the slopes, you can enjoy winter walks and sledging, or simply cosy up with some fondue at a nearby restaurant.
The Andermatt ski resort extends all the way to Sedrun Ski Resort, taking the total ski area to a sprawling 181km, easily accessed by the lifts. Slopes abound with various challenges, mostly geared towards intermediate skiers and advanced skiers. But, from cross-country skiing to snowshoeing and winter hiking, Andermatt still offers plenty for those who need a break from skiing!
