Gemsstock – paradise for freeriders and downhill pros

Perfect deep snow, challenging steep slopes and descents of 1,500m in altitude: the Andermatt-Gemsstock ski region has much to delight powder pros. At almost 3,000m above sea level, the Gemsstock is the ideal spot for off-piste fun in the Gotthard region. From November to May, freeriders can make perfect tracks down slopes in a blanket of deep powder. Experts can demonstrate their skill on the descent from the glacier and follow in the tracks of an Olympic champion on the Bernhard Russi Run. Andermatt-Gemsstock – freeriders and expert skiers will love it here.
