Nestled in the heart of the stunning Swiss Alps, Andermatt is the ideal destination for mountain lovers and skiers alike. A charming Alpine village and one of Switzerland’s oldest, Andermatt is easily accessible yet compact, with limited nightlife and a romantic atmosphere.
The area is famous for its deep powder snow and varied outdoor activities, including not only skiing and snowboarding, but snowshoeing, winter hiking and cross-country skiing.
During the 2018/19 ski season, the SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun was fully linked in both directions, becoming Central Switzerland’s largest ski resort and completing the ski area development part of a project that had been described as the biggest construction effort in Switzerland.
The connection of Andermatt and Sedrun to create one of Switzerland’s largest ski areas has been planned for many years and is linked to a five-star resort development by Egyptian billionaire Samih Sawiris in Andermatt following the 130m Swiss Franc spend on ski area upgrades.
There are a total of 10 new and upgraded ski lifts (mostly large, high speed chair and gondola lifts) completing the two-way connection between the two formerly separate ski areas.
