There are over 82km of piste at Engelberg, providing skiing for all abilities.
Visitors to the resort will find that there are 2 resorts really within Engelberg, the ski paradise of Titlis, which offers superb runs and spectacular views with lots of varied runs for every level of skier, as well as the longest ski run of the resort (Engelberg-Titlis), and the sunnier Brunni, on the southern side; ideal for beginners, families, children skiing for the first time and groups. More advanced skiers can enjoy the Laub descent, whilst the glacier offers a challenging 2000m descent, or easier red runs offering intermediate skiers great views. Off piste skiing is great for free-riders, though it is strongly advised that a licensed mountain guide accompanies them. Night skiing is also available for those seeking a different challenge.
Boarders are well catered for in Engelberg. Free-riders should definitely hire a local guide and check out the off-piste side of the resort. Alpstublii and Laub offer powder and great terrain whilst up at Jochpass there is a Boardpark and Quarter-pipe.
There are 3 ski schools and 2 snowboard schools in Engelberg, with many years of experience and good reputation; the Yeti Park is especially suited for children. For more experienced skiers, avalanche courses are also available for those wishing to venture off piste.
