Engelberg is a real gem in the middle of Switzerland. The snow conditions are fantastic and the off-piste opportunities are excellent. The resort is a place where people stay as long as possible and usually return – every year. Great snow, good chances of powder snow and just about the right amount of other skiers. During the average winter you will have a snow fall of around 7 meters of snow and you can easily find your own untouched snow if you know where to look. Engelberg is a secret well worth discovering!

Long, steep slopes, or soft, wide turns?

The village itself is located in the middle of the valley, surrounded by the two ski areas Titlis and Brunni .

Titlis is located between 1,050 meters and 3,020 meters and Brunni between 1,600 meters to 2,,040 meters. There is a vertical drop of over 2,000 meters! The areas are interconnected via a ski bus that runs all day. The total length of ski slopes in Engelberg is over 82 kilometers, so there is a lot to discover.

In Titlis there are pistes of all kind of levels. The peak is located above 3,000 meters and is reached via a cable car. At the top you can ski from early fall to late spring. The longest run in Titles is 12 kilometers so make sure you have done your hours at the gym to last all the way. The views from the top of the mountain are magnificent.

In Brunni you will find the sunniest areas and the best slopes for family, beginners and intermediate skiers. You also find good forest tracks. When you get too tired to ski, get on the toboggan and go on the toboggan run. There are several to choose from of which the longest is 3.5 kilometers. It really is a lot of fun for the entire family.

After ski?

Engelberg is a place for those who focus more on skiing than nightlife. You mostly come here for the excellent skiing. However, during the last years the occurences of busy afterski has increased and it has become more popular. Hotel Eden offers good after-ski and you will find a mixture of visitors from several European countries.
