ndermatt is a pretty village with a good snow record and impressive skiing and boarding on the Gemsstock, including some fabulous off-piste runs. Near the station are the sunny slopes of the Natschen which hosts a range of winter activities and provide good facilities for learners and intermediates. The area is subject of a huge redevelopment and what was once a somewhat overlooked resort, is likely to have its pisted area and amenities extended significantly to make it one of the largest winter sports destinations in Switzerland.

Best of the Slopes

The Gemsstock is the archetypal off-piste summit. There are so many routes down, most of which are relatively safe, and the mountain gets some fabulous dumps. It has good long runs for intermediate skiers too. The slopes at Nätschen are good for all standards of skier and boarder.

Where to Eat and Party

The Piccadilly or bar at the River House are probably the best places to meet up after a hard day on the slopes.
