Engelberg Ski Resort

Engelberg is little known and under-rated even by its home-nation; this quiet town near a historic monastery in the centre of Switzerland has high North-facing snowy slopes with vertical drops of nearly 2000m - a perfect recipe for high quality off-piste skiing.

Arriving among the impressive Belle Epoque hotels of this sleepy town you can still see why Engelberg's founding father, a wandering monk, stopped in his tracks, had a vision and set up a monastery. It's not just the dramatic Hahnen peak spreading wing-like snowfields to the south, but a huge sweep of crags that almost surrounds the town.

For skiers and boarders, two mountains are more important than all the others: the mighty Titlis glacier, and the slightly smaller 2564m Jochstock. Lifts ascend almost all the way up Titlis to its second peak of Klein Titlis at 3028m, opening up a vast North-facing deep freeze so well stocked with powder that Engelberg is fast becoming the ski-bum's resort of choice for long-lasting, easy-to-find, deep-snow off-piste and freeriding - as exemplified by the Laub, a consistently steep descent down the shoulder of the mountain.

The Laub though is just one of the 'Big Five' off-piste and freeride runs that the town promotes (the other four are Sulz, Steintäli, Steinberg and Galtiberg). And once you've completed those you can move onto the High Five - five long itineraries for ski tourers and backcountry explorers.

For those who want to stay on the piste, Engleberg has its limitations. There are some pistes on Titlis and Jochstock, mostly reds on the top half and blues on the lower half. And across the valley on the sunny side of town is Brunni, which has lower, gentler, south-facing slopes; and lastly a bus ride away (but usually covered by the same lift pass) is the small Bannalp ski area above Fell. But whilst all these might satisfy a novice (there are decent ski schools), a keen intermediate who does not want to try off-piste skiing will exhaust the 80kms of runs in about three days.

And that might be exactly what is wanted because Engelberg is easy to reach and a great weekend destination. It can also be combined in a two-centre holiday with Meiringen-Hasliberg (best for weaker skiers) or Andermatt (best for stronger skiers) which are both just over an hour away by car. Or Engelberg's skiing can be supplemented with the other winter sports on its doorstep. There are cross country trails all around the town and up and down the surrounding lower slopes, a large natural ice rink at the Sportingpark, and a separate mountain dedicated to snowshoeing and tobogganing accessed from the nearby lift at Furenalap.

But no matter how long you stay in Engelberg or what you do, you can't escape its history. Engelberg was a town long before skiing became a popular sport, so it was never designed to fit around pistes and lifts. It's therefore a two-minute shuttle bus ride or fifteen minute schlep on foot from most of the accommodation to the main lift station - a small price to pay for accomplished skiers who relish the size and quality of the descents on offer, but there are easier ski resorts to stay in.

Engelberg Ski & Board Hire

There are ski rental shops in the centre of town and around the lifts. ALPINRESORTS.com works with several shops in and around Engelberg and can secure large discounts. Check its latest offers and shop locations in Engelberg here.

Engelberg Ski Area

Engelberg’s skiing takes place on both sides of the valley, served by two separate lift systems.

Engelberg Ski Area 660x260

Brunni 

Brunni is reached from the eastern edge of town by cable car - convenient for many central hotels - but has just a handful of runs served by old lifts; for gentle sunny skiing or tree skiing on bad weather days it's ideal though limited in extent with a maximum altitude of just 2040 metres. The major ski region on the Trubsee/Titlis side of the valley, is reached from the base station, two minutes from town centre by a free shuttle bus or by a (level) fifteen-minute walk. This disjointed start is mirrored halfway up the mountain at Trubsee, where the lift system splits.

Trubsee

The Trubsee - a lake at 1,800 metres above a rocky escarpment - is traversed by chairlift in both directions to prevent the need for a lengthy pole-push. The high point to the west is the Jochstock, 2,564 metres, reached by two more chairs and giving access to predominantly red runs, well above the tree line. Also to this side, descending from the lake plateau, are red and blue back-to-village runs which pass a major cross country ski circuit and modest beginner/snowtube area halfway down, at the foot of the escarpment, before continuing through trees to the base station. Continuing directly upwards from Trubsee, the summit of the Klein Titlis is reached by two consecutive cable car rides.

The top lift - the Rotair - features the world's first rotating cabins (or at least, the floors rotate), giving everyone within sight of a window a 360-degree view on each trip. All the routes on both the top and middle sections are red runs, with the exception of one black piste and several huge off piste routes, some of them on the Titlis glacier. For strong intermediate and advanced skiers, the high pistes are the main area of interest in good weather while the off piste routes are big enough, and pass through sufficiently challenging terrain to make them a major undertaking, leaving the piste far behind.

The Laub

Halfway between the summit and Trubsee at around two and a half thousand metres is the traverse that leads from the top of the Rindertitlis chairlift to the start of the Laub, Engelberg's most famous off piste run: it's as though God took a huge, broad valley floor and tipped it up to give a perfect, constant thirty-five degree pitch for 1,200 vertical north-facing metres, as wide as several football fields, unimpeded by rock or vegetation and frequently covered in powder snow. 'Yeah baby', to use the technical term!

But to those in the know, the Laub is just the tip of the iceberg, the tourist route. The aim of Engelberg's powder hunters is to experience every one of the even longer, infinitely more varied descents from the very top. If you have any off piste pretensions, then whatever else you budget for when visiting Engelberg, a guide should be at the top of the list.

Engelberg Ski Lifts & Lift Passes

Engelberg’s ski lifts run from 8.30 a.m. to 4.50 p.m. With a big vertical difference between town and the highest lift station, it’s a lengthy process (even without any queues) to reach the top, via a minimum of four big lifts.

Engelberg Ski Lifts 660x260

Engelberg Cable Cars & Ski Lifts

The first two stages, to Trubsee, have two lifts running in parallel for increased capacity. Other than beginners heading for Gerschnialp, everyone has to reach Trubsee before they can start to disperse across the mountain so there can be queues on weekend mornings and at noon when half-day tickets become available. With a total capacity of 15,000 people per hour, there's not usually a weekday problem.

The top cable car, complete with rotating floor, gives passengers a 360-degree panorama on the way up; the lowest-tech facilities - nine drag lifts - are mainly in beginner areas, supplemented by 2 magic carpets. The remaining lifts are an assortment of chairlifts, from 2-seater upwards. There is just one modern 6-seater, the Jochstock Express.

Engelberg Lift Passes

Ski passes are available from 1-14 days (successive days) with generous discounts for children aged 6-15 and young adults 16-19 years. Seniors aged 64 years and older get 20% discount Mondays - Fridays (public holidays excluded).

Engelberg Beginner Skiing

Both Gerschnialp and Untertrübsee have ideal flat terrain for beginners, easily reached from the base station and with a blue run back home to finish.

Engelberg Beginners 660x260

Beginner Skiing in Engelberg

A total of six blue runs - 25 kilometres - are divided between here and Brunni, which has the perfect long descent for capable beginners, from the Brunnihutte back to town. With few people heading for this side, it's an ideal area to find your feet, scoring maximum points for forest charm and with adequate uplift.

On the opposite side, the lack of blue runs above Trubsee, other than the isolated ones from the Jochpass, mean beginners and early intermediates can only get the high mountain experience and views over Engelberg by riding both up and down the Stand and Klein Titlis cable cars. Despite this layout the resort probably has at least as much to offer beginners as stronger intermediates in the context of a one-week ski holiday.

Engelberg Intermediate Skiing

Engelberg has 55 kilometers of red runs – around 60 % of the pisted terrain – available for intermediates.

Engelberg Intermediates 660x260

A bonus for skiers at this level is the stunning view from high on the mountain and usually good snow conditions thanks to the northerly aspect of most of the pistes. But there are snags: from the top of the Klein Titlis to Stand involves tackling the one serious black run in resort; you could ski the top and descend by cable car but it's not an ideal option for most skiers.

Additionally, many of the red runs thoroughly deserve their category, so there's not much time to relax on the descent. Strong intermediates practicing their carving technique will find themselves traveling faster than a speeding bullet before they can say, 'nice wax job!'. Throw in the slightly disjointed lift layout and it becomes clear that this is not the ideal resort for intermediates, even if they plan to attempt some off piste - it's mostly too challenging (and probably terrifying) still to be learning deep snow technique.

Jochstock is the best area to ski laps on piste where broader, less steep runs and chairs rather than cable cars make this a more congenial area to cruise. It's high enough for good snow and gives the best, uninterrupted descent to the valley floor at the end of the day.

For families, Brunni is ideal though limited. Easily accessed from the town centre and small enough to make for simple navigation and meeting up, there's a variety of sunny skiing. Only the old lifts, including a drag lift to the very top, are a problem. In terms of extent, you won't want to spend more than a day or two on this side during the course of a week's holiday.

Engelberg Advanced & Off-Piste Skiing

Judged by the official piste statistics, Engelberg has little to interest strong skiers, with just one black run in the Titlis area - a steep mogul field - which is also the only pisted route down from the upper area. But the off-piste, freeriding and ski touring are all superb.

Engelberg Advanced & Experts 660x260

Black & Red Run Skiing

But the red runs that make up most of the rest of the skiing are at the steeper end of the scale, with no let-up across most of the Titlis and Jochstock areas. Skiing the length of either the Trubsee-Stand cable car or the two chairs between Jochstock and Alpstubli at the western end of the Trubsee gives a sustained descent of 600 and 800 vertical metres respectively but without significant opportunities to vary the route.

If you're doing laps, you soon realize the restrictions that the glaciated terrain imposes on piste building on these north-facing slopes. Engelberg's second black run is on Brunni, from the top lift, following the shoulder of the mountain before feeding into the main red run, but it's barely distinguishable, in terms of pitch or the challenge it poses, from many of the reds found in the main ski area and it's quite short.

Off-Piste & Freeriding. 

The' Big Five' offpiste and freeride runs are the Laub, Sulz, Steintäli, Steinberg and Galtiberg.

The Laub is the most famous because it's so easy to access: from the Laubersgrat, head briefly onto Piste number 4, and keep high and to skiers' right, and if visibility is good enough to ski it safely, you will have no trouble seeing the entry point. Then keep going down the mountain till you reach blue run number 20. The Laub is neither particularly high (it starts at about 2400m) nor by Engelberg standards is it particularly long (a vertical of just under 1000m), but it's consistently steep, North-facing and wide enough for its powder to stay in reasonable condition, even when it's tracked. In theory you should have a guide but thousands ski it every year without one.

Sulz is the North facing route from Jochstock to Trubsee. There are several differnt variants.

Steintäli starts from the top of the Jochstock-Express and heads West down to Engstlenalp.

Steinberg heads North West from the top of the Klein Titlis down to Trubsee, keeping to skiers left of the Titlis Rotair lift from Stand to Klein Titlis. This is a glacier route which is not always easy to find and has considerable crevasse danger, so a guide is recommended. The second half of it is the same as Sulz.

Galtiberg is the run from the top of Tilis, down 2000m into the valley. The exact end-pint can vary depending on snow conditions but the most popular target is the small lift station at FurenAlp serving a mountain reserved for tobogganing and snowshoeing because you can return by bus from there to Engelberg. A guide is strongly recommended.

Ski-touring and Backcountry skiing. 

The 'High Five' skitours are Salistock, Brisen, Ruchstock, Titlis Round Trip and the Urner Haute Route. You need a guide for all these and they will advise what equipment you need such as skins, ropes, carmpons etc.

Engelberg Snowboarding

Both Brunni and the Titlis areas are equally boarder-friendly in terms of terrain: outstanding off piste with few big traverses and generally few flats on the upper slopes either on or off piste.Lower down, the blue run back to the village from Untertrubsee is the main area where flat stretches are a problem.

Engelberg Boarding Off-Piste 660x260

For very accomplished, highly insured riders, there are some of the best cliffs to launch off in the Alps, as reflected by the current crop of wintersport photographers who make their home here each season. But most of the jumping takes place within the main terrain park at the bottom of the Jochpass Express chair. There are numerous jumps, rails, a half pipe and a quarter pipe; the park is updated and improved continually.

During the season a competitions and events diary is listed on www.terrainpark.ch where there's also a current photo gallery. Spring and summer freestyle camps are regularly held on the Titlis, run by www.iceripper.com since 1988. There are also 3 snowboard schools for park and freeride.

There are 14-mountain restaurant throughout the area. The highest are at the Titlis station (3,028m): an a-la-carte restaurant with extensive wine and food menus and amazing views; a self service restaurant; a Mama Mia Pizzeria; and the Ofen Bar for coffee and drinks.

Engelberg Mountain Restaurant Alpstubli 660x260

The Ritz, Gerschnialp and Jochpass offer accomodation as well as sun terraces and cosy restaurants for lunch, with Swiss menus featuring rosti, fondue, salads and soups as well as more elaborate dishes. There is a cafe and self-service restaurant at Trubsee and up the cable car at Stand, the Buurestube is another friendly place with typical Swiss dishes.

On Brunni, the Brunnihütte is a cosy restaurant in old Swiss style; at the head of the valley on Furenalp walkers and toboganners can refuel on an extensive menu on the terrace of of the Furenalp restaurant.

There are also several on-mountain spots for end of day drinks: from under a huge umbrella the Sternbar at Stand has great views and is well placed, half-way down the mountain, to get your après ski started. One stage lower, outside the Hotel Trübsee, Crash is a ski-through bar for service without even removing your skis or board. Back at valley level, 'The Chalet' by the base station has a DJ each day and live bands.

Engelberg Village

Just big enough to feel like a town, Engelberg is a quiet mixture of wooden chalets sitting among large Edwardian buildings.

Engelberg Village 660x260

The railway reaches into the centre of town, good for most hotels. By car or on foot it's an easy place to navigate, with little traffic. You can explore the town in a horse drawn carriage with a sheep skin over your knees or browse the cobbled pedestrian streets towards the monastery, founded in 1120, which dominates the town. There's a church with an onion-domed spire, gardens and a building where cheese is produced and sold, as well as extensive monastic quarters and working buildings with impressive interiors, which can be visited; you can find out as much as you might want to know about making cheese while you're there. The other defining feature of Engelberg is the architecture: grand old hotels from the early days of tourism, and unexpected details like the tiny funicular from the edge of town to the 'terrace', a sunny, level strolling area with views over town.

Back in the centre of town the shopping area is adequate, with all the essentials including sports shops and a smattering of bakeries and cafes, as well as bars. The large Co-op and Migro supermarkets in the centre are also useful for provisions. The Co-op has an excellent self-service restaurant; only open until early evening but without question an unexpected star attraction in Engelberg, for quality, range and price. Opposite the station, the Okay shop on the corner of the Bellevue Hotel, is the place for telemark and snowboarding gear, along with backcountry equipment and an internet café. This is where the 'real' riders hang.

Engelberg Bars & Restaurants

With the monks up the road and a small number of visitors during the week, Engelberg is no party town, though there are exceptions to the rule. A good choice of restaurants cover all bases, with Italian, Chinese, Thai and Mexican menus as well as traditional Swiss menus and including half a dozen restaurants offering à la carte

Engelberg Bars & Restaurants 660x260

Engelberg Apres Ski

The Sternbar at Station Stand (2450m) overlooking the Titlis glacier is a popular apres ski venue for competent skiers, followed by over 1000m of descent to the valley and the Apres Ski "Chalet" bar at Titlis base station. The Yucatan, in the ground floor of the Bellevue Hotel, has a happy hour between 5 - 6pm, and a lively feel. It is alleged to sell more beer than any other bar in the whole of central Switzerland, which may tell you something about the bar, or possibly more about central Switzerland; there's also Tex Mex food and live music into the small hours. Other bars include the CC music bar and Disco, the Eden, the Bierlialp-Chäller nightclub and Spindle discobar. For quieter drinks try the old-style Dream-Life bar or the refined modern setting of the Wine Bar, smack in the centre, where you can stay on for dinner.

Engelberg Restaurants

The Alpenclub, near the monastery, serves Swiss food and folk music in an Alpine building dating from 1875. The oldest restaurant in town is the C17th Schweizerhaus, 10 minutes from the monastery and the perfect place for fondue.The Axel has a more upmarket French-Swiss menu. Spannort and Maro are also recommended.
