From an alp perspective, Andermatt's skiing system is not one of the biggest ones. The lifts are relatively few, and just like in Chamonix, the system is divided among different mountains where the easiest way to go from one to the other is by bus or train.

Even though the Andermatt system is not the biggest ski system, the smoothest or by all means the most modern one, there are plenty of rewards when it comes to skiing for those who come here. The resort is famous for being a safe choice if you want to be sure of snow and countless days of a cushioned prime alpine environment. This has given the resort a bit of a cult following, and there are countless riders coming back year after year. For those who want the feeling of a genuine, cozy alp-city, Andermatt is hard to beat. The village is, just like the lift system, relatively unchanged from its original state. You can also go across to the neighboring city of Sedrun by train without a problem.

Note yesterday only here if you like off piste and do not want to party the village is stendöd after 22 if you do not want to pay expensive at the new jetset hotel.
Off the piste is cruel energy, you only wander a bit from Gemstock's back, you get unprecedented driving for hours, incredibly snow-covered, however, high low-risk due to the amount that comes each year. Get lifts, but you drive them even if it's really windy, it's just a gem and you'll find easy-to-reach off piste right down the village.
Cozy city with good food but as said no move except in the hill. Also positive is the proximity to Zurich.
Note rating at a lot of snow which is almost always

I was in Andermatt weekend week 11. We came there and it had not been snowing for a few days, although it was very easy to find untouched snow.

+ snow proof, came 7-8 meters snow per season according to local guide
+ easily accessible offpiste
+ cruel fall height
+ little people

- pretty cool lifts
- The village is dead after 21:00
"If it has not been snowing for a while, it's quite boring

Positive: Good Mecka for those who like offpiste. Good jaw at the restaurants. Great area, Nätschen, as few people use, take the train! (the lift card works)

Negative: You'll be sad soon on the pretty little area, (Gemsstock) under the cable car if you drive mostly in the piste. The lifts went halfway when there were little people. Waiting time on weekends in the cabins. The ski bus between the areas is no hit even if it's free. Then a little detail that you rely on; No snowmobile on the sidewalks (held around 5-6 times) Perhaps no big thing, but shredding on the way to the lift / bus etc feels a bit B. Even the end point below Gemsstock is right at the main road that goes through the village. One might think they could clear away so you do not let go down the road where traffic is going on. Maybe a bit, but I would like Andermatt to take a trip to the major ski resorts in France. Small details but important anyway :-) The snow report said 4.2 meters V8 -2013, but it was only 2 dm in the slope.

Is in Andermatt for the second time. Has been in the 20th century resorts in the Alps and Canada. In addition to Whistler, Andermatt is the best place. I have traveled myself, with my wife and children. Many nice travel memories, especially since we book late, when we know where the snow is falling. For us, Andermatt with large snowfall, large rides reachable by lifts or skins has provided unforgettable skiing experiences, both in simple wide, unspoilt snowy areas and in steeper steep passages. Everything has been achieved with good equipment, as we hired at the sports shop, good map material and good advice from knowledgeable staff at the Intersport business. In addition to skiing that we value most, the village is really cozy, easily reached by low cost flights to, for example, Basel from Copenhagen, El Zurch from Stockholm, and perfect working train for 2-3 hours. Both times we have been here, it feels like home in the country, no queues, cows in the center. This is the place for those who focus on skiing. Afterski is there but is not as lively as in Austria. The restaurants are not very cheap, so we took the apartment and went to the wrist. Last time we wore here it was 4m at the top and came half a meter during the week. This time it was 4m on top also came 2dm. Both times we had to go for a couple of days to play the snow. Will probably add a map showing some easy-access off-pistons when we get home.

Have no evil to say about Andermatt. Really nice / big mountains and the great fall height offer great rides and long runs. Cruel offpiste already during New Year's Eve 2009. Small cozy town with proximity to Oberalp and Sedrun on the same ski pass by train.

Visited Andermatt for the first time during the past week and the place owns! Cozy alpine with quite quiet nightlife and a lot of restaurants. We simply stayed but incredibly fresh for 50 CHF / night including breakfast. By ski bus just outside it took about 5 min to the cable car, which goes up to Gemstock. From there, there are many beautiful yokes. If you want to hurry, the world is literally for one's feet.
We tried parts of the Giraffe, Felsentahl (about 1500 m fall height ...) and Guspis. But the best ride we had after a 40 minute easy climb to the back of a top next to Gemstock. Endless loose snow, very untouched even though it did not snow in a week! After that it was stabbing about 10 km (included in the calculations) to get back to the village, but it was worth it.
Forest skiing is not allowed but at the end of Felsentahl (to the left of the ravine) there is a nice trail with little small trees and shrubs at a fair distance. Again, much was untouched despite a week without snow.
Thank you to Björn (ski patrol) who was looking for a good ride!
If you want to sneak piste there are better places. If you want to enjoy a long lullaby, Andermatt is world-class. We are coming back!

Andermatt does not have much to offer on off-road skating, but for those who like to carve on the slopes, it's a very good option. Snow amount is okay for the most part. There are some good offpiste places but very hard to get to .

The snow amount was not the best while I was there but I think so well, alright.

v.11-09. It will not be better than this. New pillows every day for joy to us who are first up, and you can find untouched - for a long time ...
Some queues on the weekend, but in principle empty during the week. Peerless.
Do not miss Andermatts own pride www.birdos.com - cool so it suggests.

Visited Andermatt between 4 and 10 February 2009.
The snow was falling down ... and down ... and down ...

7th Feb 15:43, at Gemstock's peak there had been 100cm last 24h.
And the snow continued coming ... and coming ..,

8th Feb at about the same time 50cm last 24h.
During this time, the gemstock peak station was closed due to low infarct but the ride on the other mountain was fantastic despite poor visibility.

9th Feb opened the top of the gem stock and it felt like the pearl gate was opened !!
The ride from this peak was fantastic, with very little effort, you could reach amazing, snowy and unspoiled surfaces.

Looking for offpist = Mecca
Looking for many groomed pistes = Hades

Forget about Engelberg, dream Andermatt

Be here 17-18 January 2009.
Unfortunately, old snow but still good skiing.

The advantage of Gemstock is that you can always see where you will end if you go outside the piste. Very easy to navigate mao. The mountain reminds a little of Les Grand Montets, with much smaller people.

Also easy to get to Sedrun. Just climb the train in the center, after two stops, you get to Oberalppass and take the tow lift into the system. If the fog is thick on Gemstock then you may well find good rides here instead, which we did.

Negatively there were two slow gondolas to come up. But they are well-educated in the context of major investments currently under way.

The village is nothing for party freaks.
