As the largest ski resort in Central Switzerland, Engelberg has plenty of slopes for both experienced and inexperienced skiers and snowboarders, as well as a wide range of off-piste attractions.

Niederrickenbach-Gigichrüz-Haldigrat

This trail is an interesting alternative to the very popular ski touring destination Brisen. Once you've arrived at the top of "Gigichrüz" the amazing panoramic view is a true unique experience. Close to the summit you can find the mountain restaurant Haldigrat. If you want to go even further you can also add Brisen to your route.
