Engelberg 2016 – Day 1

So before I get back to watching the 40+ videos I have a back log of on YouTube from last week I thought I would write a little post about my first day back in Engelberg after a year and get the daily blogs going again!

Having flown on a very empty flight to Basel Mulhouse yesterday we stayed overnight at the airport before getting the train this morning. Ended up getting to Engelberg just before twelve and once everything was sorted out and after meeting up with Sophie I was out skiing just after 2.

Engelberg being a small resort, I manged to cover pretty much the whole pisted area this afternoon but didn’t touch on much of the off piste considering it was the first day and I didn’t have any equipment with me. Compared to last week in VT the weather wasn’t the greatest, overcast for most of the day, but the visibility was good for the majority of the time so it was still enjoyable with the sun breaking out later in the afternoon.

It was amazingly empty for a bank holiday but that made it all the more fun.

I enjoyed seeing the new lift for the first time that was under construction last year:

Finished the day with a lovely sunset lighting up the peaks:
