Andermatt-Sedrun Sport AG (ASS), a subsidiary of Andermatt Swiss Alps AG, operates today's skiing regions of Gemsstock, Nätschen-Gütsch and Sedrun-Oberalp under the name SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun. In the coming years, ASS will be investing around CHF 130 million to connect, modernise and expand the two skiing regions Andermatt and Sedrun to more than 120 kilometres of ski slopes. The new SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun will become the largest skiing region in Central Switzerland and one of the most attractive in Switzerland thanks to its diversity and its reliable snowfall.
In July 2014, the Federal Office of Transport (FOT) approved the application of Andermatt-Sedrun Sport AG (ASS) for the planning approval of Phase 1 for the realisation of the connection and modernisation of the skiing regions. Since then overall project lead Dr. Peter Furger has been working together with his team under great pressure on the ongoing processes. The project for connecting the skiing regions Andermatt-Sedrun comprises the construction of a total of 14 transport systems, of which 10 are to be built in the first phase (4 new, 5 replacement and 1 conversion) and 4 in the second (3 new and 1 replacement). At the same time, the artificial snow systems, slopes and restaurants are being extended.
