ENGELBERG - SWISS
An other freeride spot !
engelberg, not sure that name really speaks to you? Yet here's still a hell of a spot of off-piste skiing and freerando!
very watered by the depressions, whatever their orientation, this resort is crumbling under the powder all winter.
Runs accessible from the ski lifts and the larger wilder routes that we reach in a few minutes of skinning, everything is for a dream stay!
Freeride or Freerando
stay, road trip or last minute
Whatever the method, but this valley is part of the essential backcountry skiing!
located at the foot of the "Imperial Crown", the chain of peaks of 4000 m composed of the Weisshorn, Zinalrothorn, Obergabelhorn, Dent Blanche, Cervin/Matterhorn just behind.
The panorama is crazy! and endless runs. All orientations are possible throughout the day.
Once more, skinning at the top of the lifts seems essential to me to stray off the beaten track, in search of wild routes and make the most of this exceptional setting. Not more than 300 m climb in ski touring, at the beginning or end of the descent, we should be okay, right?
Oh I forgot, the local religion, is fondue ! So, who's ready to Go ?
As Italians like to parade on the slopes, you can not even imagine the blank playgrounds to explore the "ritalistan"!
It's up here, just behind the border, from Piedmont to Aosta Valley.
to seize from the first "retour d'est", these famous heavy snowfall which can be several meters in a few days.
Come there to test, I will tell you all of these places Magic, finally... almost all ;-)
