We then skinned up to 2750m but even though there were other tourers on the hill, it never felt 'busy'.
Reached the top in 1h50m for a rest and photo, before the guide took us via some scenic backcountry with decent spring snow conditions a couple of stops down the line. Back up to the station at 2050m again and skied back down to Andermatt. Not bad for a day when the resort was officially closed...

The most impressive part however is their 'ice battery'. The science was a bit beyond me - but they capture the waste heat from the entire building (including the supermarket below), store it and use it to heat the entire building. Anyone interested in more details can read more about it here.
