Top News / Special offers summer >Snow-sure Winter Holidays in Engelberg

Over the past two years Titlis Rotair Cableways have invested 8.5 million francs in new machines to make artificial snow. Thanks to these, 41 km of pistes are now guaranteed snow-covered.

One of the longest descents in the Alpine region is the one from Titlis to Engelberg, and for the first time ever, snow is now guaranteed on the whole length of this 12 km long run.
