One of the most attractive "skitours" in Engelberg. The "Titlis round-trip" is an alpine ski tour. It provides long downhill runs, short climbs, rappelling into steep couloirs and a great glacier hike.

The tour requires very good mountaineering skills. Safe avalanche conditions, solid ascension technique and the equipment and ability to abseil are required. It is highly recommended to hire a mountain guide.

Author’s recommendation

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