The winter around Andermatt and Sedrun has it all: From December to April it has a firm grip on the region at the Oberalp Pass and Gotthard Pass. Snow-covered slopes and forests make the Ursern Valley and the Surselva a seemingly mystical landscape. In this season, everything up here is geared towards winter athletes: skiers, snowboarders, touring skiers, snowshoeers, freeriders and cross-country skiers find their spots from the valley floor over the steep flanks up to the high alpine peaks.
The SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun is the largest ski area in Central Switzerland with over 120 kilometers of slopes and 22 Skilifts and extends to the almost 3,000-meter-high Gemsstock as well as the Schneehüenerstock (2,600 m above sea level) and the Oberalp Pass to the Graubünden Sedrun and Disentis, on the other hand. The winter hiking trails and cross-country trails in the valley bottom benefit from plenty of sun thanks to their east-west location. Snowshoe hikes, sledge rides, the ice fields in Andermatt, Göschenen, Sedrun and Disentis or ice climbing in Göschenen are the alternatives to skiing.
