The Apres Ski scene is a little limited, although there are a few places that offer a good time for all. Some of the best places include Ochsen, which is a great bar to sit back and reax after a hard day's skiing. Other bars worth checking out are Barry Bar; Piccadilly Pub; and Bar La Curva. If you're looking for something a little more lively head for Dancing Gotthard or Baroko Music Bar, which both offer great music and fun. There are also a number of excellent restaurants in Andermatt, which serve a wide range of excellent local and international food. Cafe Danoith and Bahnhofbuffet are two excellent choices.
Andermatt is an old fashioned ski resort that is a little behind other Swiss resorts in terms of commercial development, which means that it retains much of its picturesque charm. It is a great place to go for a more quiet skiing holiday, away from the crowds and commercialism of other resorts. Andermatt has excellent snow and a good range of slopes covering 56km, and it also has some of the best off-piste. It is a good place for beginners and intermediate skiiers, but experts will enjoy getting off the marked trails of the Gemsstock. The apres ski scene in Andermatt is a little on the quiet side with limited choices, but you can still have a great time away from the slopes.
