The skiing in Engelberg is one of the best off-piste experiences in Europe, with easily accessed runs such as Laub, Big and Small Sulzli, Steinberg and many more. The pistes are also very good with something for everyone. The north faced Mt. Titlis offers more advanced skiing long into the season. The south facing Brunni area offers skiing for the whole family just above the tree line. The Brunni area is perfect on days when the visibility is poor.
The Engelberg Big Five
The Engelberg big 5 ensure endless excitement! No, we're not talking about rare animals found specifically in the Swiss alps, but the famous five descents of Engelberg that for years has entertained free-riding skiing experts, daredevil snowboarders and casual skiiers alike. All five descents can be reached without having to ever remove your skis – for five-star freeriding fun.
The massive "Laub" face looks powerful and impressive from the Engelberg village. The wide open surface offers plenty of room for fresh powder tracks. The more moderate run is skier's right (viewed from above) via "Laub Planggen Alp".
The runs around "Steintäli" start from the "Jochstock-Express" top station and lead to Engstlensee. If you traverse to or hike up Wendenlücke, you can often find untracked runs - even a few days after the last snowfall.
Little, medium and big "Sulz". Offer a wide range of playful skiing. From the "Jochstock-Express" top station, all the runs invite with wide slopes, different variations, and steep and interesting couloirs. The small "Sulz" is suited as warm-up run.
The Steinberg run begins at klein Titlis and ends at Trübsee. Be-ware, you are skiing on a glacier and need to know your way around the crevasses.
The descent from Mt. Titlis to Engelberg via the Galtiberggletscher is the longest, most alpine and most difficult descent in the Titlis area. It is one of the longest freeride runs in the Alps. The impressive experience of riding beneath the north face of Mount Titlis is only achievable for expert freeriders.
