The SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun (previously the Gotthard Oberalp Arena and the Gotthard Oberalp Skiarena (until 2013)) is a ski area located in Andermatt, Sedrun, and Oberalp in Switzerland. It has 16 ski lifts and approximately 30 runs, and just over 100 km of pistes. The ski area covers five separate mountains:
- Sedrun / Oberalp
- Realp (small beginner slope only)
- Valtgeva (small beginner slope only)
It previously included Winterhorn, in Hospental, which was abandoned in 2007.
Train services (run by the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn) are vital in this resort as they are the only means of transport available to travel from Andermatt (Nätschen and Gemsstock) to Oberalp, Dieni, and Sedrun. Between Andermatt, Hospental, and Realp can be journeyed by car as well as the railway.
Gemsstock is located south of Andermatt. It has 8 runs (31 km of pistes) and 5 ski lifts (although only four are normally in use). Gemsstock also has a terrain park. Gemsstock is suitable for a range of skiers of all abilities, but in particular those who are more advanced.
Nätschen generally closes early for the summer, as it is south facing and is quite low.
Sedrun / Oberalp
Sedrun / Oberalp is located near Dieni, and is the biggest of all of the three mountains' ski areas. It is good for skiers and snowboarders of all levels. It has 7 ski lifts and has 13 pistes (50 km of pistes). There is a large terrain park, a half pipe, and a ski cross course.
In Realp there is a single, small T-bar, and a beginner run. There is also cross-country skiing nearby, and a biathlon course. Access can be made here by railway or by car (from Andermatt only).
In Hospental, there is a mountain called Winterhorn, which has been disused since 2007. The 2-man chairlift and the T-bar remain in place. The mountain was generally suited to intermediate skiers. It was accessible by either railway or car (from Andermatt only).
There are in total 18 operating ski lifts in the SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun.
