A

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 has seen a huge amount of redevelopment with lifts now connecting the resort to Sedrun and Disentis, making what was once a somewhat overlooked resort now the largest linked winter sports destination in central Switzerland with fine dining and luxury accommodation.

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 glamourous Chedi has an international restaurant, a well-regarded Japanese restaurant - both in the hotel itself - and a new japanses restaurantat the top of Bergstation Gütsch-Express (both on +41 41 888 74 66). All three are highly rated by GaultMillau. The Piccadilly or bar at the River House are probably the best places to meet up after a hard day on the slopes.
