Engelberg Ski Resort Guide

Why Ski in Engelberg?

Largely unknown by British skiers, Engelberg is one of Switzerland’s best kept secrets. We think Engelberg is best suited to intermediate skiers, the best run is the Laub, which drops 1000m. The mountain restaurants are plentiful, friendly and inexpensive by Swiss standards.
