ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
This trip includes six days with mountain guides. You’ll be split into groups of 6/7 based on your ski profile. This trip is aimed at Advanced (Purple) and Expert (Gold) off piste skiers. If you are unsure of your ski level, please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the week, you will receive an updated grading from your Instructor or Ski Club Rep.
You’ll be staying at the Hotel Terrace which is situated on a large hill overlooking the village. Due to its elevation it has impressive mountain panorama views and you will hear nothing of the high street below as you sleep. You’ll have your own single occupancy room, with twin rooms available on request and will be catered on a half board basis. The hotel is easily accessible from the main square by a lift, so no trudging up hills in your ski boots!
Flights are not included but you will receive a Swiss Rail ticket for roundtrip travel between Zurich Airport and Engelberg. The Rail ticket will be sent to you by post. Timetables and route planners can be found on the Swiss Rail website.
Engelberg is a traditional Swiss village with a tremendous snow record and incredible off piste terrain. The resort offers just over 80km of piste skiing served by 27 lifts, the majority of which are located on the Titlis Mountain that sits above 1800m. However, much of the face has been left unpisted, creating a freeriders paradise, with a huge range of lift accessible off piste terrain. For more information on Engelberg, please refer to our Engelberg Resort Guide.
If you require equipment hire then previous Freshtrackers have recommended the 4 Seasons ski hire shop. This is conveniently located near the hotel and offers both a high standard of on- and off-piste equipment and also a discount to Ski Club Members.
