Andermatt is one of those hidden gems - relatively unknown as an international ski resort for once-a-year skiers, but a popular destination for more hardcore, extreme skiers, thanks to it's steep powder-filled slopes, ideal for some quality off-piste skiing and free-riding. Andermatt has always appealed to those seeking an old-fashioned, traditional resort, but all that could change as plans have been passed, and work started, on a resort-style development that will see a number of large hotels and golf course created, the first of which is planned for 2013-14. As well as it's winter appeal, Andermatt is also a popular summer destination, and the new development will most likely increase it's popularity even further.

As usual, we recommend Switzerland's excellent rail network. It takes just under two hours from Zurich, with a single change at Goschenen. This easy access makes it a popular destination from Switzerland's premier city. Whilst Zurich is the nearest major city, Andermatt is also about 3 hours from both the airports at Basel and Berne.

Generally Andermatt's après-ski is very quiet, almost none-existent to be honest, which is somewhat surprising given its popularity with skiers from Zurich and its cult status amongst free-riders and off-piste skiers.
