Enjoy the Swiss mountain lifestyle!
We got new sunchairs for relaxing at our sunny terrace and around the lodge. There is enough room to enjoy the sun and up here above the village we get a fair bit longer days allready. Down in the village the sun drops sooner behind the mountains. You can enjoy the sun in front of your accommodation or fire up one of our Weber BBQs for some food and beer after freeriding! This is the real mountain lifestyle enjoy it with your friends.
Come in and ski out!
Looks like a big low pressure system is coming from the Atlantik towards the Alps. This could be another 20-30cm dump in the next 24-72 hours. The conditions are already very good. Wind has done some work shifting the snow and creating the usual hazards. Get informed with locals how this affects Andermatt and its unique location just at the Alpine main ridge catching the wind and snow
be safe and enjoy
Snow-Situation in Andermatt for Saison Opening 2012/2013
Looks like it will another great winter for freeriders and mountaineers in the Swiss Alps. Andermatt has proven again to be one of the resorts of highest snowfall and best snowsecurity. We have now 2-3 meter at the top of Gemstock and over one meter in front of our lodge and hostel Basecamp Andermatt. This amount of snow already so early in Dezember is only the beginnig for a really great saison 2012/2013
New sunny terrace at the lodge
We have just finished our new big terrace just in time for the saison opening in Andermatt. It is facing south towards the Gemstock and has a great view over the whole valley. Here you can relax in the sun and enjoy your apres ski. This is lodging with a view! We will also provide the BBQs for you in front of the house. This will be a very sunny place in Andermatt, because it is located a little above the village and will get the last sunrays where the village itself lays in the shadow already.
