ADVANCED FREERIDING WITH WELLNESS
The ancient village of Engelberg is at the foot of the 3228 meter high Titlis above Lake Lucerne. In general, the area receives lots of snow and is known by insiders as one of the favorite freeriding areas.
The ski area itself is well served by the unique rotating 'Rotair lift' to the Titlis (3028m). There are beautiful, long and steep descents off piste which can be compared to La Grave! From the highest point we have magnificent views of the Bernese, Grisons and Valais Alps. In addition, you will find excellent restaurants in the ski area.
The best extras of the area are a number of 'hidden' descents; your mountainguide skiguide knows them all! To get to the right places, we have to put now and then the climbing skins under our freerideski's (snowboarders with splitboard or snowshoes). The terrain is steep and exposed, this is not an area for beginners!
We stay in a very comfortable hotel with spa facilities and a good kitchen. Engelberg has a features a great monastery complex and a nice pedestrian area with its beatuiful shops.
