It’s definitely still feeling quite wintery around here with the consistently colder temperatures staying put. The pistes have been next-level good the past week, and the off-piste conditions are a mix of chalky bumps and velvety pow.
It’s been a beautiful week here in Engelberg. Bluebird days above the fog are what dreams are made of. The snow conditions are what we call “variable.” We’ve skied perfect pistes, packed powder, chalky bumps, and everything in between this week. These are the days that make you a better skier, and line choice is key.
We’ve had some friends in house this week doing what they do best- producing the good vibes and jaw dropping ski content. Nikolai Schirmer and Kristofer Furnes Kopala passed through on the way to Verbier with Blackcrows.
Linn Eklund from Hobnob stopped by to plan an exciting mountain club week in April. She also dropped off some new goodies for our gift shop! Pop in and treat yourself while they are still available!
We’re saddling up for another rowdy week ahead with another helping of snow on the way. Our fat skis are already quivering with anticipation.

Snow pack (from avalanche bulletin)
Moderate to strong north-easterly winds mostly resulted in small snowdrift accumulations. Some of the snowdrift accumulations of the past few days are prone to disruption. They should be judged with caution, especially in very steep terrain.
In addition, isolated avalanches can also start in deep layers and reach medium size. These danger spots are mainly at transitions from little to much snow.
Tours and off-piste descents require careful route selection.
