About the Trip
If you like back-country then Andermatt is a must. Its a small village located in the heart of the Gotthard region and is one of the closest freeride areas to Frankfurt. Andermatt's main peak – the Gemstock – offers the best access to the back-country routes, and it also offers access to a variety of groomed runs for those who prefer the piste. The G-Park at Gurschenalp gives you a chance to show off your tricks and jumps.
On the other side of the village is the Gotthard-Bahn to take you to the areas of Sedrun and Oberalppass with a greater range of intermediate and beginner runs and more fun park obstacles.
Free-riders might well want to explore the back-country routes to Guspis or Felsental down to Hospental, or try the “Giraffe” route down to Unteralp or the famous “Russi” run. FSC recommends only venturing off-piste fully equipped and with a qualified guide.
We stay at the 3* Hotel Aurora at the base of the cable car to Gemstock. On Saturday night we dine at the hotel, on Sunday we have the opportunity to explore Andermatt's fine choice of restaurants – not to forget après-ski at locations such as the Spycher and Alte Apotheke. It is certainly worth taking a look at the 5* Chedi hotel, one of the developments of Andermatt's famous Egyption entrepreneur Samih Sawiris.
