Heads up powderhounds: the 2021/2022 season kicks off this weekend in the Swiss freeride mecca of Engelberg.
Beginning Saturday, October 9, skiing on the Titlis Glacier will be open with the Glacier Lift and the Ice Flyer in operation. More lifts will come online as soon as possible, with the full run down to the valley expected to open by December 4.
Here’s the full release from Engelberg:
With over 200 skiing days, Engelberg-Titlis offers the longest continuous winter season in Switzerland. Skiers can start the season on the Titlis glacier as early as October 9, which is expected to last 226 days until May 22, 2022.
For the first time this winter season, day and multi-day ski passes can be booked exclusively via a dynamic pricing model. Tickets are already available online today. The earlier you book, the more you benefit from the lowest price.
Until the downhill run over 2,000 vertical meters from the glacier down to the village can be opened (planned for December 4), it still has to get a little colder. At lower altitudes, the autumn is wonderfully colorful and there are currently still the best hiking and biking conditions. Enjoyable and panoramic at the same time, you can, for example, enjoy the Walenpfad or the 4 Lakes Hike, which are among the most beautiful high-altitude hikes in Switzerland, marvel at a unique play of colors, and not infrequently, admire the sea of fog in the lowlands. What is of course also possible in Engelberg in autumn as well as in spring: in the morning dashing down the slopes, and in the afternoon enjoying climbing, hiking or biking.
Check out open lifts, ticket prices and current conditions on the Engelberg-Titlis website.
