Children's areas

Many "ski careers" have started in Engelberg on the Klostermatte near the Brunni lift. However, this perfect beginners' slope is not the only beginners' ski area in Engelberg.

Globis Winterland

The Klostermatte beginners' area is located right next to the valley station of the Brunni lift. It offers two ski lifts, a large magic carpet and a ski kindergarten. 

Yeti Park

The Yeti Park is located directly behind the top station of the Engelberg-Ristis cable car. Two magic carpets and a rope lift provide for comfortable transport. Thanks to natural and artificial aids (wave trough lift, etc.) children can learn to ski with fun and in a playful way or simply enjoy sledging, sliding and romping around in the snow.

Gerschnialp

It is a small paradise at the foot of the Titlis: the Gerschnialp. With the traditional funicular you can reach the small plateau at 1300 metres above Engelberg. For beginners the conditions here are just perfect. The clarity and the three ski lifts with easy slopes offer ideal conditions for families and beginners.

Untertrübsee and Älplerseil ski lifts

Here you will find varied terrain ideal for advanced beginners.
