Engelberg is located in central Switzerland and it is an off-piste mecca with a long season thanks to the glacier. The most well-known slope is called Laub and it will definitely make your legs burn.

The rotating lift, Titlis, attracts an incredible amount of Asians each day, and who can blame them, the nature here is just magnificent.

If you look beyond the slope you will be able to find several movie locations you might have seen in ski films from all over the world. The famous ice fall which a few people have jumped, but pretty much no one has made, can be found here. It is a powerful blue mass of ice that you do not want to slip off. You have many possibilities for off-piste skiing and many people like the feeling of freedom here so you can easily find good places by simply following local heroes or renting a guide. Some of the classic slopes here are Laub, Galtiberg and Steinberg.

It is a skier’s playground. With minimal snow maintained by the mountain, you can get as creative as you want!
