Andermatt is a town and ski resort in the Swiss canton of Uri. It is situated at a historically significant crossroads in the Alps.
Andermatt is one of the most snow-sure winter sports destinations in Switzerland. For hardcore freeriders, Andermatt Sedrun in Switzerland is a powder and off-piste skiing destination. Combine cold storms from all directions, which guarantee a thick alpine snowfall far into April, with 1500m vertical descents down Gemsstock, and you get one of the world’s top freeride locations, with enough of terrain for families and intermediate snow riders.
The Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn (rail) provides easy access to Andermatt Sedrun, and the world’s largest lift, terrain, and connection growth, and renovations make it a very delectable destination for all skiers and snowboarders.
Andermatt is still a classic Swiss mountain hamlet with several distinguishing characteristics that set it apart from other ski regions. To mention a few, the train as part of the lift pass and the fantastic sled run over the closed Oberalppass road.
Massive extension of lifts and intermediate terrain, as well as many massive hotel complexes in town, indicate that Andermatt may soon become unappealing to the general public.
