Skitouring area Fürenalp - small and unique

Sunshine on your face. Away from the hustle and bustle of the skiing aera. Ascent to the peak, enjoying the panorama view before you take the downhill.

Skitour Wissberg

Although somewhat outshone by the Hahnen, the Wissberg with its steep, sweeping flanks that taper up into sharp points is one of the most remarkable mountains at the far end of the Engelberg valley. Please make sure you only attempt to conquer the Wissberg in absolutely stable snow conditions. The south-west facing side of the Wissberg is a good place to enjoy springtime skiing in glorious sunshine. You start your ski-tour next to the mountain station / mountain restaurant Fürenalp. 

After a peaceful descent you can relax at the panorama terrace Fürenalp. Let the restaurant team spoil you on the sun terrace or in the rustic restaurant.
