Popular year-round resort with one of the biggest verticals in the Alps.
Engelberg is a winter sports resort. It delivers on all its promises:
- guaranteed snow cover
- thrilling off-piste skiing
- superb snowboard parks
- vibrant après ski
It is the second most snow secure resort in the Alps, and it’s close to Zürich Airport.
Most Swiss ski resorts are along the border of France, Italy, or Austria. Engelberg, a village of about 3,500 people, hides in a valley right in the middle of Switzerland. The village is postcard perfect.
The mountain: imagine the Grand Canyon, with layers of horizontal rocky ledges and crenelated peaks like Hahnen that look like castle ruins. Frost it with snow. Drop in a few plateaux for the skaters and cross-country skiers, and add a glacier and a lake or two.
Engelberg also has the first revolving gondola: the 1993 Rotair. It takes skiers all the way to the top of Titlis, a 10,000 feet peak that faces north to hold its snow. The peak even offers a bar that may be needed before the dive down the black or better challenge of the infamous 3,289-foot Laub of untracked snow. If that’s not enough there’s a 395-foot ski hill and a glacier with year-round skiing.
