Engelberg has been the worst-kept secret in freeriding for quite some time. Now you can find out for yourself what makes freeriding in Engelberg so special. Ensuring that you enjoy the snow safely when it is powdery is important to the organisers. On Snow & Safety Days, mountain guides introduce freeriders to the secrets of travelling off-piste and highlight the most important rules using various different methods. Avalanche Victim Search Training (or LVS-Training) using shovels and sensors, powder skiing, and ski tours accompanied by mountain guides are just some of the pearls you can experience during this diverse three-day programme.
In 1987, Fredy Glanzmann became the first Swiss man to successfully win the World Cup for Nordic combined skiing. It is fitting then that the setting for his evening snowshoeing tours is also reminiscent of a Nordic landscape. Langis-Glaubenberg is the largest moorland in Switzerland and in winter, it forms a pristine winter landscape covered in deep snow – just like in the far North. Get to know Fredy Glanzmann and his region on a snowshoe tour. Glanzmann is a nature expert and knows this landscape like the back of his hand. He will quench your thirst for knowledge and the Obwalden specialities you will enjoy on the tour will satisfy your hunger.
