A winter campsite is located at the side of the hotel Eienwäldli. Very organised with great facilities, use of lovely indoor pool for small charge. Excellent bar meals in hotel, also shop in hotel. Very regular and prompt ski bus stops just outside campsite to go to both ski areas within 10 minutes. On arrival go to the reception in the hotel.

Engelberg is quite a large town. Quite imposing buildings rather than swiss chalets, but still an interesting place to visit and very organised for the skiing. It has a good road to the resort, along the valley.

Aire/Campsite details:

Stayed here for 4 nights. Campsite is super, Comfort Platz gives you TV plug ins, water and Chem disposal without the trek.

Wi-Fi costs 5CHF for your stay.

Ski and Boot room under the main hotel, together with laundry.

Well stocked shop, good resraurant but the bonus is the full "Wellness" centre if you like that sort of thing!

 

Skiing details:

Skiing is the upper end of intermediate scale. Their is not much for beginners and the reds can be quite steep.

The highlight is the Off piste from the top of the Titlis Glacier. Make sure you have your safety gear. Also good is the wall off the back of the Laub. Just follow the signs. Not for the faint-hearted.

Enough there for 3 days of skiing if your high intermediate or above.
