Andermatt Swiss Alps

The Chedi Andermatt Hosts its First Event

Monday 21st October was a significant day here in Andermatt, as we welcomed members of the press and professional skier Lara Gut to be part of the first event in the The Chedi Andermatt hotel. The event seamlessly blended into the Chedi Andermatt’s luxury interiors and the hotel was the perfect host venue. During the morning, Lara Gut held a press conference to announce her plans for the coming ski season, and to talk about her involvement with the Andermatt Swiss Alps project, which has been one of her most loyal and pinnacle sponsors.

Speaking of her involvement with Andermatt Swiss Alps Lara said, “I’ve been with Andermatt Swiss Alps since it was nothing more than just a great idea and, then it started growing, and now it’s an existing reality, with a five star deluxe hotel opening. I’m so proud I was able to be part of this exciting development, and I’m very proud to have the honour of being the first to have an event at this great hotel”. Lara also used the press conference to launch her new website, which features new colours and ideas, moving away from the traditional text heavy style. It’s covered in photographs and has a great interactive section on her career to-date.

For those keen on treading in Lara’s footsteps to success, there’s no better place to start training than in Andermatt. Speaking at an event earlier in the year, which marked the opening of the Lara Gut red run on the Gemsstock, Lara expressed how the Swiss Alps remains her favourite place to ski, “whether for training” or in her spare time, Lara said “I love going back to the Gotthard region and am so excited about the partnership.”
