Powder Harvest in Engelberg

Rider: Prof. Shredding the Steinberg glacier.

The snow gods have blessed us with bountiful powder the last three days in Engelberg. Thursday was my first full-on powder day here, and… well… what can I say… this place rocks! Friday was a tough day… uber deep powder… knee-deep… chest-deep… but no visibility… none… total foggy whiteout. It was brail survival riding just to make it down the marked pistes. So Friday was a bust, but all the off piste remained untouched due to the whiteout, so Saturday… Saturday was full harvest in action. The weekend warriors were out in force, but even the shitshow crowds of powder hounds missed a few large stashes which I was happy to shred until the end of the day. So, when’s the next storm???

  1. You finally got the powder you’ve been waiting for! Patience always pays off. Looks like you’re having a blast. Great set of pics, as usual. Is there any winter gear you can borrow from a local you so can get on top of the mountain for some inversion pics?
