If you are looking for a short ski break in a traditional Swiss village, visit Andermatt. Highly popular as a skiing break destination, it is accessible from Geneva and therefore attracts residents from the area by the coach load.
Additionally you can unlock Andermatt and its attractive village offering excellent steep pistes as well as good off-piste terrain and ski-touring opportunities aplenty with cheap flights to Geneva. It will normally take about 3 hours and 30 minutes from Geneva Airport.
With an excellent snow record, the resort makes a fantastic short ski break destination but it also offers plenty more. Its mountains are tall, steep and covered in deep snow and the village itself is lined with attractive wooden houses and some impressive churches which are worth a visit during your time spent off the slopes on a skiing break. Cosy bars and mountain restaurants provide après ski refreshment and relaxation and there are welcoming hotels and chalets to stay in during your short ski break.
The Ursern Valley is a blanket of pure white snow in winter and with 20 lifts and 125km of pistes, it is a skiers’ and snowboarders’ paradise. The views from the 3000 metre high Gemsstock are almost as breathtaking as the descent whilst the Bernhard-Russi run gives visitors on a skiing weekend in Andermatt to follow in the footsteps of an Olympic skier.
One of the Alps’ best kept secrets hides behind the Gemsstock – a giant backcountry with powder opportunities. The more ambitious skiers and snowboarders looking to challenge themselves on their skiing weekend in Andermatt will see this as an opportunity too good to pass up.
For those after a ski weekend for beginners, try the lower half of Nätschen for a long and easy run. And for those who are interested in a snowboarding weekend break, Andermatt offers some great free-ride terrain, easily accessible by cable car.
