First Powder Skiing – Snow Report Engelberg 19th Nov

Mattias hargin eating powder for breakfast on monday the 18th of November in Engelberg.

52cm of snow richer in a week!

Last weekend we had the perfect reopening of the glacier pistes on Mt.Titlis and we could do the first carving turns between Stand 2450m and Trübsee 1800m. Coverage of snow was is still a bit weak outside of the pistes, and hidden rocks made it quite interesting. Supporting your local businesses in terms of ski service turned out to be a very easy task. 😉

The most unexpected that happened this weekend was actually not during the weekend. It did start on Sunday – the snowing. But the result was way over our expectations. On Monday morning we could wake up to a bright sun and 30 cm of fresh powder sprinkled all over the mountain. What a way to start the week huh!

The upcoming week promises some good weather for our sport – not so cold temperatures and glimpses of sun.
