Engelberg DreamTrip 2025

1-9 MAR
8 Days


Freeride, Powder & Huge Lift Served Vertical in Switzerland!

Only an 2 hour train ride from Zurich, Engelberg is one of the best freeride destinations in the world. It features "The Big 5" runs that are all easily accessible from the lifts and offers unmatched huge terrain you can lap with ease. There are many reasons we chose to come to Engelberg, from its unique microclimate, that generates more snow than anywhere in Switzerland, to it's easy access terrain and elevations stretching from 9850ft down to 3400ft. There is also a great alpine culture with a diverse ski community of likeminded freeriders from all over the world, who are there to get it after it and have fun on and off the mountain.

Like all ADL Trips we have local connections and friends in Engelberg. The owners of our lodge go way back with us and our own ADL ambassador, pro Skier and friend, Chad Sayers, who shows us all the best terrain Engelberg can serve up. Then there is our other buddy, Marcus Caston. He loved Engelberg so much he moved there. Honestly, if you like Swiss food, huge lift served, off-piste skiing and traveling with a small group of like-minded people - this trip cannot be beat.

We ski all day, every day and enjoy the après in town and at our hotel. There is no driving during the week. It's a short walk into town and our hotel shuttles us to the cable car and back. It's a trip where the skiing will excite and leave you drained at the end of the day but, the nights will relax and recharge you, so you can do it over and over again.

Trip Style: Engelberg is for the skier who wants to experience big mountain skiing in the Alps. Huge terrain options are available in all directions from multiple chairs and cable cars. It's a lap-able playground and unique option on our list of DreamTrips. Think Chamonix with less people and easier access.

Traveler Type: We are looking for fun travelers and skiers who like to discover new places together. Being flexible, low maintenance and going with the flow will help maximize your fun on and off the mountain. You should enjoy Bavarian food, drinks and good times with new and old friends.

Skier Type: Like all ADL Dreamtrips we cater to advanced/expert skiers. That means you know how to read trail maps and are comfortable skiing almost any run on the mountain. It also means you know how to ski back to the base or hotel by yourself if you so choose. We only ski in bigger groups when we are being guided and we follow their directions carefully. When not being guided we usually break into smaller groups of 3-4 and ski with those who share our ability or style of skiing. We are there to have fun whether that means we break up naturally into smaller groups or if it means party runs with 10-12 are in order, we will do that too... its all about having fun and not being on a strict schedule.

Roommates: On this trip we have double rooms that sleep 2 people each or if you are solo, you can have your own room at no additional cost. If you have some good friends or couples that you know would enjoy this trip - invite them too. We have done all the dirty work, with the trains, hotels and guides are all reserved. You just need to show up and be ready to experience it all. Who's in?
