Just 11 km (6.8 miles) and less than 10 minutes by car from Lodge Sax (slightly longer by bus or train), the ski area of Sedrun is on the same lift pass as Disentis and offers excellent groomed cruising runs on four separate faces served mainly by modern high-speed lifts. Although we love the main piste at Disentis, we do admit that the piste skiing at Disentis is limited. For people interested mainly in carving rather than finding powder off the pistes, we highly recommend you check out Sedrun during your visit to Lodge Sax.
Intermediates will love its high-alpine feel within a safe, approachable environment. The multiple exposures provide the feeling of roaming from place to place. You can cruise down onto the summit of the Oberalp Pass, where two nice mountain restaurants offer excellent lunches indoors or, when the sun is shining, al fresco. Mixed groups will also find enough challenging terrain for some off-piste adventuring, followed by meeting their carving companions back at the lift.
Several excellent ski tours also begin from the far end of Sedrun’s lifts on the Oberalp Pass. This includes the Pazolastock and Rossbodenstock routes that offer 1,500 vertical meters (over 5,000 feet) of backcountry skiing down to Andermatt.
Sedrun is also part of the dramatic redevelopment of Andermatt, which includes adding 14 new lifts. The two resorts will be fully inter-connected within the next two seasons. More on the plan is on this page.
