Engelberg is one of the leading freeride destinations in the Alps, with numerous spectacular descents like the Laub, Steinberg and Galtiberg.

Titlis has a unique topography and can guarantee unique powder descents from 3,020 m a.s.l. down to Engelberg at 1,000 m a.s.l. throughout the winter season.

To ensure your day in the powder is carefree, we recommend employing a certified mountain guide or ski instructor to lead you safely across the terrain. Always stay informed about the constantly changing weather conditions and avalanche.

At the Snow & Safety Days, mountain guides teach freeriders how to ski safely through off-piste powder snow and demonstrate the most important rules for having fun and staying safe.

The varied three-day program provides avalanche training with shovels and transceivers, tours over powder snow accompanied by mountain guides, an orienteering race in the ski area, and much more. And best of all, the course is free of charge for Guest Card holders staying in Engelberg overnight.

 Dates (Monday to Wednesday):

22-24 January, 29-31 January, 12-14 February, and 26–28 February

Is powderskiing not your thing? No problem; Engelberg is the biggest ski area in Central Switzerland – and Engelbergers and many others also say it’s the best! From October to May it is a beautiful place to snowboard, ski or sledge 2,000 metres above sea level. A varied winter programme offers plenty of things to do when you’re not skiing. Engelberg’s many winter hiking options and expanded services for Nordic fans ensure plenty of active fun in the snow even for non-skiers. Our free Christmas and New Year programme for children will keep the little ones busy and happy, and their parents relaxed.

Why not head up the mountain during evening? Snowtubing, snowshoe walking or winter hiking by night at Trübsee. Every Saturday night from Christmas to Easter the gondola lift will take you up to Trübsee, where you can enjoy pizza from a woodfired oven and a good glass of wine in Italian restaurant Lago Torbido after your exertions. All you need is your ski pass.
