Skiing from A to D and back

The best way to get from Andermatt to Disentis and back on skis

Many roads lead to the destination. But with a few insider tips, it might go a little faster. In this respect, we have put together two variants for you here on how you can best traverse the Andermatt+Sedrun+Disentis ski area.

With the skis from Andermatt to Disentis

Variant A

Start with the Gütsch Express cable car. Then take the Gütsch in the direction of Schneehüenerstock/Oberalppass. Take piste 13a to the Lutersee-Flyer and then pistes 18 and 20 to the Schneehüenerstock-Flyer. At an altitude of 2600 metres, take piste 30 down to the Oberalp Pass. Get on the Oberalp-Flyer to reach Calmut. Take piste 30 to Val Val to the Cuolm Val-Flyer. From Cuolm Val you go straight down to Dieni.

In Dieni, take a 5-minute train ride on the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn to Sedrun station (check your train connections here and pay attention to the track line). At Sedrun station, follow the signposts and hiking signs to the pedestrian subway, which leads you to the Strem lift. Take the stirrup lift up once and go directly to the entrance of the Cuolm da Vi cable car, which takes you to the Disentis ski area.

Alternatively, you can skip the Strem lift and walk up to the Cuolm da Vi valley station.

Variant B

Start at Andermatt station with a one-hour train ride on the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn to Acla da Fontauna. From there it's about a 10-minute walk to the Disentis-Caischavedra valley station. The Caischavedra cable car takes you up to the ski area of Disentis. Check your train connections here.

With the skis from Disentis to Andermatt

Variant A

Start in S. Catrina with the Caischavedra cable car. At the top, take the magic carpet and continue directly to the Palius ski lift. Follow piste 102 to the Gendusas chairlift, which takes you up to 2176 metres in altitude. Take the Lai Alv chairlift to gain a few more metres in altitude, then take slopes 110 and 120 to Dadens and reach the Cuolm da Vi mountain station via slope 127. Take the cable car down to the valley station in Sedrun, where you can make a few short turns down to the Druni family restaurant. There, take off your skis and walk via the pedestrian subway to Sedrun railway station.

A 5-minute train ride on the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn takes you to Dieni (check your train connections here), where you can remount your skis and take a seat directly on the Milez-Flyer chairlift. In Milez you take piste 45 to Mulinatsch and from there the Mulinatsch-Flyer up to Cuolm Val. Take piste 39 to Val Val and then the Calmut-Flyer back up to Calmut. Slopes 35 and 36 lead directly to the Oberalp Pass where you take the Schneehüenerstock-Express gondola. From the Schneehüehnerstock, pistes 25, 26, 27, 27a and 13 take you to the Gütsch-Flyer, which is the last chairlift ride before the valley descent on the pass road to Andermatt.

Variant B

One-hour train ride with the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn from Acla da Fontauna to Andermatt. Check your train connections here. Tip: You can ski almost to the Acla da Fontauna railway station: Just make sure that you follow piste 132 on the descent to Sax.
