Der höchst gelegene Leuchtturm der Welt! Der einzige Leuchtturm in den Alpen! Ein Leuchtturm ohne Meer und Schiff! Der Leuchtturm auf dem Oberalppass wartet. Das Schiff wird kommen. Ein Schiff aus Rotterdam. (http://www.leuchtturm-rheinquelle.ch/) #oberalppass#schnee#leuchtturm#andermattsedrun#switzerland

Andermatt is a high-alpine village (1'445 meters above sea level, less than 1'500 permanent inhabitants) at the crossing of the Alpine pass roads (open in the summer season) and the Alps-crossing narrow-track railways (in service all year around). Besides that, it hosts a military training base and it is a traditional winter sports destination with a growing popularity, given mainly by the recent hotel and infrastructure developments. Here I am showing some of the older buildings from this typical mountain village where the mostly massive winter snowfall dictates the architecture - Switzerland - March 2019
Some vistas from the red slope starting on the top of the Gemsstock Peak (2961 meters), it's mostly less steep and wider than the already introduced black slope on the other side. The skiing conditions are still amazing there in Andermatt / Switzerland - March 2019
Yesterday, there were absolutely fantastic skiing conditions on the Gemsstock massive above Andermatt / Switzerland - March 2019 - This mountain with a great snow quality is a real gem for skilled skiers!! Here shown pics document the slopes around the middle station of the big gondola.
The black slope from the Gemsstock Peak (2961 meters) starts at the Gerschen glacier and ends with the Bernhard Russi Run - named after the famous son of the village, 1970 Downhill World Champion in Val Gardena & 1972 Downhill Olympic Champion in Sapporo, later also my coach during his downhill camps. It belongs to the steeper runs, as can be seen mainly on the last pic, on the right - Andermatt / Switzerland - March 2019
