Spectacularly scenic, Engelberg is perhaps best-known for the Laub off-piste route. The easy transfer makes it a great option for short breaks.
Translating as Angel Mountain, Engelberg has a stunning setting, surrounded by dramatic peaks. High altitude and snow-sure, this resort has one of the biggest vertical drops in the Alps.
The skiing is split between two mountains and, not to be missed, a rotating 360-degree gondola takes you to the top of the ski area. With superb off-piste, the Laub route is one of the ski world’s classic descents and, with so many routes to explore, we recommend hiring a guide.
On-mountain dining is noticeably good value and, although there’s plenty of choice, we always head to the Fluehmatt for the delicious macaroni cheese.
In the traditional village centre, the monastery is top of our list for local attractions, while Yucatan Bar is a good choice for après drinks.
When it’s time to head home, the transfer to Zurich takes only two-hours, making Engelberg ski holidays a good choice for shorter breaks.
