Andermatt Swiss Alps

Summer Season is in Full Swing

Well it’s certainly been a busy couple of weeks for The A Team. We’ve stomped the divets at this year’s Ascona Polo Cup and hiked the Gemsstock with champion skiers Bernhard Russi and Lara Gut – and we’re only halfway through the summer season!

From the 12th to 14th July Europe’s finest polo players descended upon the infamous old Ascona airfield next to Lake Maggiore in Switzerland, for 3 days of thrilling polo and a buzzing social scene. In its 4th year, the Polo Ascona Cup is a landmark occasion on the summer calendar and an event Andermatt Swiss Alps is proud to sponsor. If you missed the action and want to catch-up, watch our video below.

From one action packed day to another. On Saturday 20th July we hosted special guests and Andermatt Ambassador’s Lara Gut and Bernhard Russi, for a day of exploration and hiking in our beautiful region. Starting the day in style guests gathered at the top of the Gemsstock for a champagne breakfast at the honesty bar.

With clear blue skies and bright sunshine guests enjoyed views of over 600 mountain peaks. The fine weather provided Bernhard Russi with a great canvas from which to demonstrate the planned ski expansion between Andermatt and Sedrun to the guests and championship skier Lara Gut. In addition to his role as Andermatt Ambassador, Bernhard has also been putting his years of experience to use helping with the plans for the new ski area.

Following breakfast it was time for the group to discover all that summer in the alps has to offer.  Activities throughout the morning included an introduction to Geocaching, treasure hunting for the digital age using GPS devices, and a trip to the petting zoo with local guide Bänz Simmen.
