Ski / Snowboard
When winter comes to Andermatt, the Ursern valley turns into a fantastic ski area with 25 lifts and 130 kilometres of well-prepared pistes, which invite you to spend a great day in the snow.
On the top of the nearly 3000 meter high Gemsstock, a spectacular panoramic view of more than 600 summits makes your heart beat faster. On the Gemsstock, there is one of the very first alpine runs created especially for carvers. The Bernhard-Russi-Run, a famous ski run down the glacier, got its name in honour of the winner of the Olympic games in Sapporo. The Gemsstock, scene of a series of exciting events, has long been a “secret” amongst snowboarders and off-piste skiers.
The ski area offers a wide range of pistes for every standard. Beginners such as free riders will find the loveliest runs in the Gotthard area.
