Engelberg, Switzerland

european skiing engelberg switzerland

Engelberg makes a great weekend retreat for the residents of Lucerne, less than an hour away. Despite impressive and distinctive mountains towering 2000m above the village, it attracts few foreign visitors - partly, we guess, because its slopes are rather inconveniently fragmented.

What's Great
What's Not-So-Great

+ Engelberg is one of the 10 most popular resorts year round

+ Great resort for intermediates (particularly high intermediates and experts) and snowboarders

+ Incredible vertical drop (6,400+ feet)

+ Nice health spas in the area, as well as kidsí attractions

- While the village is postcard perfect, the mountains don't look like much of the Alps

- Slopes are rather inconveniently fragmented

- It's about a half-mile from the center of Engelberg to the base of the Titlis lift system

- No snowmobiling found in or around Engelberg
