The Steintäli belongs to the BIG 5 of Engelberg and thanks to its location you can still find powder snow days after the snowfall.

The descents around the "Steintäli" from the mountain station of the Jochstock-Express partly lead to the Engstlensee. Traversed or ascended west, in the direction of Wendenlücke, the freerider will also find a few days after the snowfall a little more unspoilt terrain.

Comments

  • A rewarding option is the skitour to the top of Wendenlücke
  • descent form 2564m.üM - 1890m.ü.M
  •  It is recommended to hire a mountain guide

Author’s recommendation
