Sitting at the crossroads of mountain passes from both north to south and east to west, Andermatt is the largest of three villages in Ursern Valley. The Village has a long history and is mentioned in documents dating back as far as 1203. It has always been known as one of the best winter sports centres for experienced skiers and snowboarders looking for guaranteed snow on challenging slopes; however, the resort has fallen off the map a little in recent years. This is all about to change with new development of this pretty village bringing improvements to the ski area and exciting new accommodation options.

Advice & Guides
Andermatt has always been one of the best resorts in Switzerland for guaranteed snow, accessed via two-stage cable-car to the skiing area on the Gemsstock, at nearly 3000m. The wide open slopes are ideal for experienced skiers, snowboarders and serious powder hounds. There are also easier slopes near the Gurschenalp and in the skiing areas of Nätschen (Andermatt) and Realp.
With the purchase of a winter sports pass for the Gotthard-Oberalp region, you can also use the ski area of Sedrun.
Cross-country skiers are catered for by the "Urserntal" cross-country track (40 km), which follows the River Reuss through fantastic scenery from Andermatt, via Hospental to Realp and back.
