Engelberg Snow Report
Last 10 days have been a rollercoaster of thoughts and emotion. Before Christmas we saw the light in the tunnel with good snow and fine days, then the warmth and rain hit us for a week down in the valley. luckily the higher altitudes still kept cold and dry. At least around 2000m, which is crucial for the snow base layer. As it is now, the layer that is exposed to straight sunlight and was on the verge of getting warm is still a pretty weak layer. This is to be considered when going out of bounce…
Today we got variable reports from the mountain. Guests out with Mountain Guides got fantastic conditions on their secret spots. Then we can straight out say that out in the off-piste around the lifts the snow is quite hard packed. Basta. Photo Proof of both below!
