Day 1 Individual arrival at Andermatt and welcome by the mountain guide. Following a short introduction to avalanche transceivers/safety, you’ll head on the slopes for some technical instructions and practice rides. And then it's time for your first turns in the powder snow!

Day 2 Our mountain guides know the freeride opportunities around Andermatt like the back of their hand. Depending on snow conditions, they will choose the most suitable descents and ensure you have plenty of powder snow fun. Possible destinations include the short but no less varied runs at Nätschen, one of the countless Felsental options or the famous Giraffe on the Gemsstock. Or want to head south? If so, there's a great descent via the Gloggentürmli to Airolo.
