At last, Andermatt’s Nätschen ski area in Central Switzerland is now fully linked in both directions to the Sedrun ski area. The last piece in the jigsaw, a 10-person gondola from the Oberalp pass to Schneehüenerstock along with associated new pistes and a hugely increased snowmaking capacity opened for the 2018/19 season on 14 December. The resort is now claiming a total of over 120km of pistes and 22 lifts, with around half the pistes suiting intermediates best and 30% suiting experts best.

And for 2019/20, the ski area will be further expanded by a link from Sedrun to neighbouring Disentis. That will mean a total of 180km of pistes and 30 lifts.

Also new for 2018/19 is a big new self-service restaurant at Schneehüenerstock and a new glass igloo bar at Gurschen on the separate Gemsstock mountain.

Gemsstock has traditionally been Andermatt’s main mountain and its steep pistes and legendary off-piste suit experts best. But the completion of the new Andermatt-Sedrun link mean the area is now also good for intermediates.

A new Radisson Blu hotel has opened, along with shops and restaurants around the new Piazza Gottardo.

All this is part of plan that was first announced over ten years ago and has involved an investment of around CHF130 million (over £100 million).
