The Andermatt-Sedrun ski link in the SkiArena will be reality for the start of winter season 2018/2019. The last new piste from Oberalppass to the Schneehüenerstock is nearly finished. This completes another major project of the Andermatt Swiss Alps destination – along with the inauguration of the Radisson Blu Hotel and the buildings with shops and restaurants around Piazza Gottardo in Andermatt in December 2018.
With the construction of the last new lift, the Schneehüenerstock-Express, the visionary project of the Andermatt-Sedrun ski area merger will be complete. The Schneehüenerstock, where two lifts converge, forms the actual hub of the ski link. With breath-taking views of the Ursern Valley and Surselva, Schneehüenerstock is destined to become a hotspot. Assuming timely issue of the building permit, a mountain restaurant with 222 indoor seats and 272 outdoor seats will be built.
Project manager Peter Furger draws a positive summary: “We have realised the entire infrastructure while meeting the project targets in terms of schedule and budget. Despite a number of challenges, we can now wrap up the project.” He thanks all the decision-makers within and outside the company, all the involved contractors and suppliers and the employees.
