Get your hands on the latest gear from Black Crows, Armada, Faction and many more.
Clinics & Workshops
Beyond the gear test, Freeride Days Engelberg offers an action-packed program of different clinics and workshops with pro athletes and local guides. Improve your off-piste skills with a freeride technique clinic led by ski coach and freeride pro Piers Salomon, or beef up your safety knowledge with an avalanche safety management course. Need even more adrenaline? Lift off with a “Ski & Fly” speed riding introduction class, get exposed on a ski mountaineering course, or complete the legendary Titlis Round Trip ski tour.

The freeride technique course will have you skiing just like Pier Salomon. Okay, maybe not quite.
The action doesn’t stop once the lifts close. On Friday, there’s a Snow Safety and Movie Night hosted by Mammut. On Saturday, Jérémie Heitz will speak about his experiences and share some movie segments. Click here to see the full daily program of events.
The Skier's Dinner in Ski Lodge Engelberg is apparently already booked out, but you can still drop by the bar afterwards!
