South of Zurich and east of Andermatt, the Disentis ski area has 60km of pistes served by 9 lifts accessing a maximum descent of 1500m. The village is an old Romansch-speaking community, which they call Mustér. Disentis is now interconnected with Sedrun via cable cars. Once in Sedrun, it is now possbile to snowboard all the way to Andermatt via interconnected lifts.
This family-friendly ski area is popular with beginner and intermediate snowboarders. One of the well-known descents is the 12km route from Pez Ault down to S. Catrina descending 1600m. But don't let the family-friendly reputation fool you -- there is also excellent off-piste routes. The most popular freeride lines are the descents in Val d'Acletta and Val Segnas.
After a long day of snowboarding in Disentis, don't expect much for apres ski action. The best bet is right at the base at Tipi Nevada.
To reach Disentis by air, fly into Zurich International Airport (ZRH). From the airport, take the train through downtown Zurich and then onto Chur. Transfer to the Rhaetian Railway towards the western terminus in Disentis. Disentis is also the eastern terminus of the Matterhorn Gottard Railway. The train station is a 10 minute walk to the lifts.
Overall, Disentis is the 80th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 80 snowboarding resorts in Switzerland.
