Spectacular Ski Tours around Andermatt

Explore the largest ski region of central Switzerland with 6 top ski tours.

Description

Andermatt is a charming little ski town in the heart of the Swiss Alps. The SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun has all the benefits of skiing in Switzerland: modern lifts and well-maintained pistes, not to mention the traditional Swiss cheese fondue and Berghoff Kirsch waiting for you back at the lodge.

Andermatt is particularly great for advanced skiers and snowboarders seeking new challenges. Home to Gemsstock, a mammoth 3000-meter mountain, it’s a ski touring and freeriding dream. Expert snow enthusiasts can catch the gondola to the peak of Gemsstock and enjoy the feeling of being the first to cut through deep layers of fresh powder.
