Andermatt

Ski resorts in Switzerland
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.
