With the Buiräbähnli Rugisbalm - Mettlen. This modest peak, situated to the east of the Widderfeld Stock, is accessed from the Engelberg valley. The cornice-crowned point drops steeply down towards the village, offering a magnificent view into the valley. Sensational powder snow can often be found on the picturesque slopes of Lutersee.

Author’s recommendation

Safe snow fun in powder snow at the Snow & Safety Days.
