Freeriding in Andermatt | with local guides

Dream lines in a convincing variety



Introduction to Freeride Andermatt

Rides on the Gemsstock

Ride with us



In the past, it was exclusively the young locals who paid attention to the off-piste runs around the Gemsstock, but today Andermatt Freeride is a well-known brand and, alongside Engelberg, one of the top spots in Switzerland in terms of off-piste skiing, even in the entire alpine region. And rightly so! Because on the descents up to 1,500 meters long, powder-hungry freeriders are offered practically everything their hearts desire.


The predominantly north-facing exposures of the Gemsstock provide cool shade on the slopes and preserve the powder. In addition, the terrain is strongly structured and some chambers are often in a sheltered location. The local freerider or guide usually finds powder somewhere. Thanks to its central location at the Gotthard, Andermatt gets plenty of it, both from the north and the south.

The Gemsstock offers wide, open slopes that invite you to make big turns and enjoy surfing. However, the area is particularly impressive with its demanding descents, its numerous steep couloirs, with elegant lines that are unparalleled in terms of aesthetics and with playful, varied terrain between rocks, crests, backs, channels, ditches and bushes. Anyone who is also willing to put on the skins and briefly ascend gets numerous other options.


By the way: Andermatt is famous for freeriding, but there is also great rock climbing, for example on the nearby Teufelstalwand, on the Gross Bielenhorn, Furkahorn or Gletschhorn, to name just a few.


Off-piste variants on Gemsstock | Freeride Andermatt


*Attention! The off-piste variants depicted on the maps only show their approximate courses and may contain errors. In particular, it must always be decided on site based on the prevailing snow and weather conditions whether and how a run is possible. This requires solid training in avalanche awareness and freeriding. We recommend every freerider to take advantage of corresponding offers and / or to book a mountain guide .


Giraffe | Freeride Andermatt

The royal descent


The off-piste descent from Gemsstock via Vorderes Gurschenälpetli to Andermatt is the royal descent from Freeride Andermatt. It got its name from the narrow couloir, the giraffe neck, which leads down to the Unteralp. Whoever is in it understands the naming. If conditions allow, freeriders will get their money's worth here: huge, open slopes with often very good snow and in the end the spectacular bottleneck-like couloir . Freeride Andermatt at its best. There are numerous variants, especially in the upper area, which are not described here. learn more
