Engelberg DreamTrip Photos & Story

Big doesn’t do it justice, but GINORMOUS does!

Freeriding in the huge mountains of Engelberg with a small group of ADL original Dream trippers Scott and Lorne Lewis, Kris Hendricks and rookie Patrick Brown. The reported low snowpack had us nervous but after a 6000′ tram ride from the town to the top peak our fears were put to rest. Great snow and wild terrain, marked with glaciers, rocks and chutes awaited us just steps from the lifts. Ginormous might not be a word but the terrain at Engelberg was huge. Pro skier and friend Chad Sayers was there to show us the sweet 4000-foot lines and our fellow ADL Suisse friend Andi Hunkeler, took care of us off the hill at his traditional hotel in the village. We scored fresh powder on thigh burning off-piste, lift served runs that seemed to last forever and followed it up with cold beers and farm fresh raclette. Trip one to Engelberg was epic – read on and join us next year.
