This Season we will open the new 8 person Gondola Andermatt-Nätschen-Gütsch. It's called the "Gütsch-Express" which runs from the Andermatt train station via the new middle station at Nätschen, with restaurant and Kinderland, to the Gütsch mountain station. The two chairlifts Hinterbördli-Strahlgand (“Lutersee Flyer”) and Vordere Felli-Schneehüenerstock (“Schneehüenerstock Flyer”) are being built in the direction of Schneehüenerstock.
There is more. We also built a New Kinderland at Nätschen middle station Andermatt’s sun-bathed mountainside Nätschen-Gütsch. It is perfect for exciting snow adventures. At the new Nätschen middle station, a snow paradise for families, children, and winter hikers is being developed, which will also open this winter, announced Silvio Schmid, CEO of SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun. It includes a family restaurant in the middle station with a large play area and "Mattis Bärenhöhle" (Matti’s bear’s den). The middle station will be surrounded by children’s practice slopes, a snow playground, an adventure piste, and much more. Together with the centrally located ski school, the Nätschen area will become the new family meeting point in the SkiArena.
Total investment in the resort for this year is likely to be a new record of CHF 100 million, beating last year’s record CHF 90 million, according to Swiss media reports, with a little over half the total being spent on the ski slopes.
Snowmaking is also being upgraded with new snowmaking aimed at securing skiing down to Andermatt all winter. The expansion of the network on the valley run from Gemsstock to Andermatt last winter is being credited as part of the reason the resort saw a growth in skier days and of 2.6 per cent in sales last winter.
