Across the Oberalp Pass from Disentis and Sedrun lies Andermatt. Centred on the Gemsstock, an enormous free-standing peak towering 1,500 vertical meters (5,000 feet) directly above the village, the resort offers a mix of burly freeride skiing/snowboarding, ski touring, and challenging cruising on steep, long winch-groomed runs. Andermatt is also great for snowboarding thanks to its wide-open freeriding areas and Central Switzerland’s biggest half-pipe.
The historically underdeveloped ski area of Andermatt is in the midst of a dramatic redevelopment that is transforming Andermatt and Sedrun into an extensive inter-connected skiing domain. Fourteen new lifts are being built in what may be the largest ski resort redevelopment in Swiss skiing history. The first of three lifts required to connect Andermatt with Sedrun opened in winter 2016-2017, with the remaining two lifts to open in 2018.
Andermatt, Sedrun and Disentis are now all on the same lift pass, and the train ride linking the three resorts is free of charge for lift pass holders. By choosing Lodge Sax in Disentis, you’ll be accessing all of this amazing skiing at a generally lower price point than for comparable accommodation in Andermatt.
