2'000 metres of altitude varied descent

The descent from the glacier down to the valley is 12 kilometres long and covers an altitude difference of around 2,000 metres. Various refreshment stops and a breathtaking mountain panorama perfectly round off a day of skiing in the Titlis area.

"Powder stress", being the first person on the freshly groomed piste, or leisurely putting on your ski boots and striding to the valley station. They all have one thing in common: they want to feel the snow under their boards. This is no different in Engelberg, where skiers already queue up in front of the turnstile in the morning and can hardly wait to board the first gondola. Up it goes from 1,000 metres in altitude to the Titlis glacier at 3,020 metres above sea level, where the skiing fun can begin.


The start, as already mentioned, is at 3,020 metres above sea level, where the piste leads across the glacier to the entrance of the unprepared Rotegg piste. The Rotegg is a challenge for many and is only recommended for good skiers, as it is marked as a yellow piste (most difficult level). Once the Rotegg has been mastered, the first refreshment stop is already waiting, the Skihütte in the stand at 2,428 metres altitude. After a little refreshment, we tackle the slopes from Stand to Trübsee. At Berghotel Trübsee once you have arrived, it is recommended that you enjoy a drink on the sun terrace, for example, or treat yourself to a delicious pizza at the Pizzeria "Lago Torbido" to strengthen.

Ride across the lake

From the Berghotel Trübsee, a short stretch of piste leads to the "Trübsee Hopper" chairlift, which comfortably transports skiers across the lake. After this chairlift ride, the next refreshment stop is already waiting: the Alpstübli. After a "breather", the descent into the valley is already underway. The first section of the valley run is a flat gliding section and ends at a junction. There you can either choose the easier "Standard" run or the steeper "Kanonenrohr" run.

The best meringues from Engelberg

The restaurant Untertrübsee is located where the two slopes Standard and Kanonenrohr meet again. This place is also called the Meringue Curve, because you can get the best meringues in the whole of Engelberg at the Untertrübsee restaurant and it is therefore recommended that you make a short stop there.

After a delicious meringue, the last part of the downhill run is completed. The route includes gliding sections, steeper slopes, a few bends and a beautiful view of the village. Once you have reached the valley, the skiing fun is far from over, because now an extensive après-ski awaits you in the chalet at the valley station.

My personal tip

After the chairlift ride with the "Trübsee Hopper", I recommend that you don't go straight down the valley, but take the chairlift up to the Jochpass. Firstly, there is still the Bärghuis Jochpass, which is definitely worth a visit, and secondly, you achieve more speed for the downhill run.
