Engelberg-Titlis photo gallery

If you enjoy a little history smattered in with world-class skiing, then an Engelberg-Titlis ski vacation will be the perfect Alpine respite. This tucked-away, ancient village in Central Switzerland was founded by Benedictine monks in 1120. In fact, the monks brought skiing to the area in the early 20th century. Because the area is easily accessed via Zurich or Lucerne it became a popular spa retreat for elite Europeans in the 19th century. Despite its historical foothold, or perhaps because of it, Engelberg-Titlis resort  has seen many technological firsts, including The Rotair, the world's first revolving cable car, and Europe’s highest suspended bridge, the Titlis Cliff Walk and Ice Flyer—six-person—chairlift, which opened in 2000. 

Like many other ski resorts in the Alps, Engelberg-Titlis offers spectacular views for non-skiers thanks to its intricate chairlift and tram system. Other non-skiing activities include sledding, snow tubing, snowshoeing, winter hiking and cross-country skiing.

Engelberg-Titlis Ski Resort

Klein (Mount) Titlis 9,934-foot and its neighboring snowy peaks create a dramatic centerpiece while skiing in Engelberg. The 6,463-foot ascent to the top of the resort yields exceptional views; it’s said you can see 80 percent of Switzerland from Mount Titlis. Many lifts serve the snowy pistes, offering numerous descents of varying difficulty for skiers.

Engelberg ski resort sprawls both sides of the town, and the sophisticated chairlift system provides skiers with easy access to each area. Titlis glacier skiing is considered the main attraction and can be enjoyed October through May, but is best reserved for expert skiers and snowboarders.  This area is chalk full of challenging off-piste runs like, Engleberg’s Big Five: Laub, Steinberg, Galtiberg, Steinal and Kleine and Grobe Sulz.  Experts looking for a challenging leg-burn will revel in the seven-mile run from the top of Titlis to Engelberg village. Terrain park riders and skiers will also appreciate the features in the Jochpass area. The warmer, South-facing Brunni ski resort is ideal for beginners and families. First-time skiers and boarders will appreciate Trubsee’s flat area, and more experienced novices and families will enjoy the gentle slopes of the Gerschnialp and Untertrubsee ski areas. Families on an Engleberg ski vacation will love the fact that children under the age six ski for free.

Great Swiss resort

We've been to Engelberg a few times - usually good snow on the mountain, even late in the season. The ski area is quite small, but good variety and amazing terrain. Resort is still filled with Swiss skiers, unlike resorts like Verbier. The town has a 'regular' feel to it, and a nice atmosphere. Recommend hiring a ski guide when you are there, if you can. We've stayed at a few hotels in the town - Spannort was quite nice, as was Cathrin. Best place was Chalet Espen. We're going back next year!

Engelberg - A Great Value

Stayed at the Hotel Terrace. The all-inclusive package is one of the best values I've seen. All meals and an Apres-ski snack, soft drinks, beer, wine, tea, coffee from 10AM to 10PM, ski pass, and guide. The resort is really magical. Will go back for more.
