With 82km of ski and snowboard trails suitable for a variety of abilities, the area around Engelberg is the perfect winter retreat for snow enthusiasts of all levels. And with skiing available at 3,000m on glacial slopes there's always snow to be found from October until May. Particularly famous for its freeriding opportunities, Engelberg has become a mecca for off-piste junkies. One of the most impressive off-piste features is the 1,000m drop from the shoulder of Mount Titlis. The snowboarding at Engelberg is also legendary, not only because serious boarders love the off-piste in the resort, but also thanks to the jumps, wave run, and terrain park which can have difficult add-ons created upon request.The Engelberg Valley has numerous interesting routes that cross-country skiers can enjoy, and of course across the entire area there are hiking and snowshoe trails where everyone can marvel at the spectacular natural scenery. Sledging gives you a high-speed alternative way to experience the landscape, and more high-adrenaline fun can be found in the SnowXPark - where you can ride electric motorbikes across the snow.In the village of Engelberg there's plenty to do besides snow sports. Founded in the 12th century, Engelberg is a thriving town rather than just a ski village. Its belle époch architecture and Victoria hotels line the streets, and there are lots of shops, cafes, bars, and restaurants. All year round there's a full events programme, with exhibitions at the museum, film screenings at the cinema, live music concerts, and local comedians performing. For the après ski hours the restaurants and bars in town are great, and you can also visit the highest bar in Europe up on Titlis at 3,020m!
