Andermatt Aims For October Opening

J2SkiNews posted 23-Sep

The Andermatt-Sedrun ski area in Switzerland, which is now owned by the American Vail Resorts group, has announced it plans to begin its 2022/23 on Saturday the 29th October, "if everything goes well."

The resort, which often posts the deepest snowpack in Switzerland for much of the winter, is aiming to open its Gemstock mountain above Andermatt, famed for its freeriding terrain, first of all.

Following long-awaited snowfall and lower temperatures in the Alps there are currently five ski areas operational in the Alps in Austria, Italy and Switzerland, although all have extremely thin cover reported of just a few inches and very limited terrain open at present.

The numbers open are expected to reach double figures over the first weekend of October.

Zermatt recently re-opened very limited terrain after an unprecedented seven-week break in its formerly year-round operation and the other Swiss glacier area operating is Saas-Fee, although it's believed that's still only open for race teams training, not to the public, at present.

Engelberg's Titlis glacier and the Diavolezza glacier near St Moritz are expected to be the third and fourth Swiss areas to open, in mid to late October, ahead of Andermatt.
