One of the shortest bus ride from Frankfurt will bring us to our three-star Crystal hotel, located right in the heart of the town and just a four minute bus ride from the Titlis Bergbahn station. Recover in the hotel's sauna or steam room after skiing.
While beginners may prefer to concentrate on the blue runs of the Gerschnialp, more advanced skiers and boarders will have plenty of choice above the Trübsee area, whether from the Titlis or around the Jochpass. Rising to over 3000m, the Titlis mountain is quite literally the pinnacle for skiers. With its excellent selection of mostly north-facing groomed trails and off-piste opportunities, it offers snow-sure skiing for every level. Boarders will be more than happy with Engelberg’s terrain park and there are 40km of cross-country trails, both up the mountain and in the valley.
The Rotair rotating gondola will carry you to the glacier for knock-out views and often powdery high altitude runs. For a real thrill ride, try the steep descent down from the glacier – or return on the gondola if courage escapes you. Fully equipped and trained experts will enjoy the off-piste Laub, a powder bowl with a 1120m vertical drop. The ski club recommends hiring a local professional guide when going off-piste.
To keep your energy levels up, you can rest your legs and fill your stomach at the Alpstübli, the Ritz, or the less well-known Engstlenalp where a ski-mobile will drag you up back to the bottom of the chair-lift.
