Try the Wissberg ski tour from the Fürenalp mountain station to the Wissberg. Enjoy the panoramic view of the Engelberg mountains before you take the descent back to the Fürenalp mountain station or directly down to Engelberg. Thanks to the intense sunshine on the south-west-facing flank, spring snow can be found on the Wissberg early in the season. You need about 2 hours for the altitude difference of 800 meters. The tour is classified as difficult.
