Skiing Engelberg resort is a full on, big mountain adventure for everyone. 

Engelberg Skiing & Snowboarding

Engelberg is 'world class big mountain skiing' in the truest sense of the words. The 2000m skiable vertical is imposing enough........... and then you ski it. The off piste freeride terrain can be super intimidating to the uninitiated. Even on the more popular routes (i.e. Laub), avalanche danger & crevasses on the glaciers are ever present. If intending to tackle the ‘Big 5’, Engelberg is best sampled (at first anyway) with a guide.

For those not interested in chasing powder, Engelberg's topography means it has an awkward & disjointed arrangement of lifts & piste trails. After half a day it makes enough sense, Even new skiers will feel a sense of adventure as trails wind down valleys to the base. The beginner areas are somewhat cut off from the rest of the terrain up higher. The best area for beginners isn't even in the main resort, but near the town on a sunny slope above the historic Kloster (monastery) in the ski area called Brunni. The Brunni ski area consists of the lower 'learn to ski' run plus a small amount of mixed piste trails on about 440m of skiable vertical accessible via cable car. See the Engelberg ski trail map here.

Ski Lifts
Engelberg's ski lifts are an intriguing mix of old, new & downright gob-smacking. Several ancient cable cars throughout the valley appear to have more to do with summer & winter walking than skiing. In the Titlis ski area, surface lifts appropriately serve beginner areas, whilst modern chairs & gondolas, plus the iconic (& gob-smacking) Titlis Rotair cable car provide the uphill oomph for the rest.

Replacement of the painfully slow Engstlen chair & two new chairs plus a terrain expansion are in the wings for below the Schafberg peak. Still exciting times ahead for Engelberg.
