    Insider’s tip for freeriders!

    In the category „Pro“ the advertisement slogan the resort „Engelberg-Titlis“ uses, „Free your Mind“ and „Expect the Unexpected“ cuts to the chase. The unimposing mountain map can be very misleading in this case. That the resort „Engelberg-Titlis“ is already well-known among freeriders becomes clear the moment you see how many riders with superwide freeskis bustle around at the resorts ungroomed mountain sides. Noteworthy are the off-piste descents between the „Klein Titlis“ (3028m) and „Trübsee“ (1800m). In the upper passages you pass glacier ice and really intersting rock formations. But watch out: You should only take these descents with the due amount of care and attention. Crevasses and the current avalanche situation should not be underestimated! Our resumé: A real insider’s tip for pros: 5 out of 5 stars in this category!

    There are some very nice off-piste runs: e.g. the Laub run (Laubersgrat-Gerschnialp), which has a great panorama, is quite long and not too difficult. Then there are many possibilities from Jochstock to Engstlensee or Trübsee or from Titlis over the glacier

    Free ride paradise, with runs like Galtiberg, Steinberg, Steintal and of course Laub. Also great start point for ski tours. probably one of the best freeride resorts in The Alps.
