Who is Snowflake?

There is hardly anything that spreads as much happiness and joy as skiing. And no one embodies this joy as beautifully as the Engelberg legend "Snowflake".

But who is he? At the proud age of 77, he has the most skiing days in Engelberg to his name. He never misses an opportunity to pursue his passion and prefers to be on the skis every day. In this way he comes to an astonishing over 150 ski days per season.

Spring skiing

The Engelberg legend "Snowflake" and Marco Odermatt have a lot in common: they not only share a passion for skiing, but also the ski brand and their home-mountain. While Snowflake was already skiing on Titlis when Marco was still at school in Engelberg, the latter is now skiing much faster!

FAQ

How many days exactly does Snowflake ski?

In the winter of 2022-23, he spent 168 days skiing in the Engelberg-Titlis ski area, out of a possible total of more than 200. More skiing days were added after the ski area closed on multiple ski tours. This means that Snowflake is on his skis every second day of the year.

Why does Snowflake ride without safety equipment?

Engelberg-Titlis Tourism as well as the mountain railways recommend that all skiers wear a helmet and bring the appropriate equipment when freeriding. We therefore asked Snowflake why he refrains from using the modern safety options. Find his answer in the video below. 

Where does the name "Snowflake" come from?

The name is based on his white outfit. Find out why he always wears white in the episode "This is Snowflake".
