Engelberg is a central Swiss ski resort with excellent off-piste freeriding and panoramic gondola.
Smaller than other Swiss ski resorts and more familiar to locals than international vistors, the centrally located Engelberg is nonetheless blessed with outstanding terrain. The Titlis mountain dominates the resort. There's a cable car up to its summit where less advanced skiers and sightseers can disembark and enjoy a walk over the suspension bridge and a hot chocolate in the restaurant without having to tackle the black slopes of the summit descent. Beginners are catered for by a separate area that allows them to build up confidence without being intimidated by the speed of more advanced skiers. Engelberg is also notable for a long season stretching from October until May, which makes it a favourite with off-piste freeriders.
