Awesome off piste vertical
Bottle-neck gondola station at base
It took me a while to get used to Engelberg. First impressions are that it was all tight and steep pistes, often icy, not great for beginners and always crowded. But once you know where to go then there is plenty of space and off-piste options and you start to realise why it has a reputation as a freeride paradise! Careful on the glacier - there have been a few deaths over the last few years thanks to this and some avalanches. You need to know what you are doing and I would recommend a guide if you are new to the resort.
