The one-time purchase of a half-price subscription enables unlimited skiing at half price from December to May during the 2019/20 winter season.
The Andermatt+Sedrun+Disentis region is introducing a half-price subscription this winter season. Starting on December 14, for only CHF 41 (adults) or CHF 20.50 (children up to 15 years of age), a half-price subscription is available that can be used to purchase unlimited day ski passes at half price during the 2019/20 winter season. With a day ticket price of CHF 84 (children 42), buying a half-price subscription pays off from the very first day. What’s more, the infrastructure has been further expanded with the addition of a new gondola cableway from Sedrun to the Disentis ski area, and the sports train between Dieni and Sedrun runs three times an hour.
"With this offer we are rewarding returning guests and strengthening the bond between snow sports enthusiasts and the Andermatt+Sedrun+Disentis ski region", says Samih Sawiris, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Andermatt-Sedrun Sport AG. Together with Bergbahnen Disentis, an offer has been created that resembles the SBB half-fare season ticket.

Half-price subscriptions are available from Nov 18th on www.halbpreisabo.ch.
