At the base of Piz Gemsstock in the Usern Valley, Andermatt gets regular dumps of thick, inviting powder, especially on its north facing slopes, and the high altitude means it keeps the snow for longer – steep gradients and loads of easily accessible off-piste terrain. Varied terrain with separate lift areas graded according to ability. Ndtschen and Stvckil for beginners, Winterhorn for the intermediates, Gemsstock for access to three excellent long black runs, from which pockets of powder, hits, jumps, and couloirs can be reached and Felsental for suicidal off piste options.
