Winter is back in Engelberg. We never stopped having fun, but boy oh boy this new snow was a much-welcome gift from mother nature! The couple of dry weeks leading into this weather system seem to make it all even sweeter.
The snowfall seemed to miraculously pinpoint straight on Engelberg, with a whopping 63 cms falling in the past 3 days. It came in with some strong winds, loading up some of our favorite secret stashes with chest-deep magic. 🙂 If you know where to go, things are never truly “tracked out” here, so we look forward to some mellow sunny days ahead of us until the winds bring in the next snowfall.
The Lodge has been full of friendly faces this past week, some new and some old. We love this time of year, where our new friends just experiencing Engelberg for the first time bring the stoke, and our long time returning guests bring the knowledge and the good stories. If we’re taking scientifically, I believe we can call this symbiosis…?
A couple of those long time friends are Mattias Fredriksson and Chad Sayers. They are each a core piece of Ski Lodge history, making some of the most beautiful ski photography we’ve ever witnessed. Chad recently published a beautiful book documenting some of his adventures throughout his career, titled ‘Overexposure’. Stop by our lobby or his socials to get a glimpse!
Also in house this week are the talented Niklas Söderlund and Alexander Cederquist Svensson, shooting a documentary. Stay tuned for more on this…!
Need some palate invigoration? Look no further.
Our Brasserie Konrad chefs have been hard at work developing a new menu, and it rolled out this week. We could try to explain how delicious these new dishes are, but you really should just come taste for yourself.
Last but definitely not least, we celebrated Fat Tuesday with our homemade traditional Swedish Semla. The only words for this would be: Chef’s kiss.
