Klewenalp

Klewenalp Ski Resort Switzerland

Klewenalp ski resort Switzerland is located beautifully above Lake Lucerne, close to Luzern & Zurich . Klewenalp is a traditional Swiss resort perfect for a family ski trip or even better as a warm up to the superb Engelberg a few minutes drive to the south.

After a good snowfall, powder skiing opportunities are plentiful at Klewenalp. The potential 1551m skiable vertical down to the lake is a tasty treat indeed.

The Urner Hut Tour or otherwise known as “The Skier’s Haute Route” is one of the best ski tours in the Alps. The tour goes from Andermatt to Engelberg and has an emphasis on top-notch descents rather than the long traverses which are common on some other standard Haute Routes through the Alps.
