Summer & Winter

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.

Laucherenstock

This elongated elevation, which only juts up a little from the Ruchstock-Sättelistock ridge, is easily accessible on skis. The gorge beside the steep ascent meets a hollow just below the summit. Once you reach the top you can enjoy the amazing view before taking on the descent over deep snow.
