Beginners have it good here. There is a nursery slope in the village and other easy runs are accessible higher up the mountains on two sides of the valley. These higher runs are ideal for progressing on and really aid confidence building.

The majority of marked piste in Engelberg is suitable for intermediates and very pleasurable piste it is. The views are stunning and the terrain interesting. However, if it’s sheer mileage you’re after then you may be disappointed.

Engelberg is well known as a freeride heaven and certainly doesn’t disappoint. There are many easily accessible off-piste routes but the area is glaciated so it is essential to hire a guide. Check out the Laub area, especially after a recent snowfall.
