ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
The holiday includes 6 full days with mountain guides and is aimed at Advanced (Purple) and Expert (Gold) off piste skiers. If you are unsure of your level please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the week you will receive an updated grading from your Instructors.
When participating in a Purple/Gold off piste holiday you should be prepared to do some ski touring at some point during the trip. Where possible the lift system will be used to access off piste terrain, however if you need to venture a bit further afield in order to access the best off piste conditions, then your instructor may suggest ski touring. This will all be dependent upon conditions and the instructor you have on your trip.
You’ll be staying at the 3* Hotel Terrace which is situated on a large hill overlooking the village. Due to its elevation it has impressive panoramic mountain views and you will hear nothing of the high street below as you sleep. You’ll be catered for on a half board basis, with wine included with dinner. The hotel is easily accessible from the main square by a lift, so no trudging up hills in your ski boots! This trip includes a 6-day standard adult lift pass which will be given out at the hotel in the morning of your first ski day.
This holiday is on a single occupancy basis in a comfort room. You will therefore be placed in a room on your own for the duration of the trip. If you would prefer to share a room with someone you know, then please contact the Freshtracks office and we will make the relevant arrangements.
Flights are not included but you will receive a Swiss Rail ticket for return 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 https://www.sbb.ch/en
Please do not book your flights until this holiday has been confirmed to run. Once the holiday has been confirmed, please send your flight details (flight numbers, arrival and departure time) to the Freshtracks Team via email to email@example.com
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 un-pisted, 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 Page.
If you require equipment hire then previous Ski Club Reps 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 a discount to Ski Club members.
If you own your own ski touring equipment, then it may be worth taking this with you on your trip. If you do not own your own kit, then this can normally be easily rented in resort. However, please be aware of the cost of hiring this equipment in resort.
