Ski Lodge Engelberg

Switzerland

Intro

Two old ski friends who got fed up with their desk jobs, and chose to pursue a lifelong dream - that is the short story behind the Ski Lodge. Now, a couple of years later, it is a hotel with a focus on mountain activities, but also with a few ingredients that make a good vacation even better - great food, a large wine cellar and cosy, homey rooms.

The facts

We are here to make people fall in love with the mountains.

The idea behind Ski Lodge Engelberg was to take all those years traveling, the early- rise powder mornings, the foggy goggle problems and turn it into a meeting place for mountain lovers.

Ski Lodge Engelberg was founded by people who love mountains and skiing

About


General

Ski Lodge Engelberg was founded by people who love mountains and skiing more than anything else in the world. The passion for anything steep and deep took them to many places around the globe, resulting both in broken thumbs, angry girlfriends, everlasting memories and above all: a whole lot of fun.
The idea behind Ski Lodge Engelberg was to take all those years travelling, the early- rise powder mornings, the foggy goggle problems and turn it into a meeting place for mountain lovers. That’s right: From the outside, we might look similar to something people would call a hotel, but the foundation for our business lies in the people, spirit and certain feeling created by the little wrinkles on planet earth we call mountain ranges.

The owners

Niklas and Eric discussed the dream of running a hotel already during their studies. After graduation, the plans were forgotten and the two ventured off to different parts of the world, working long hours in the banking and advertising industry. Whenever they met, it was always on top of a snow-clad volcano in Chile, driving a snowmobile in the Rocky Mountains or on a glacier in Chamonix. Counting days on snow every year.

It was during one of those trips, this time to Engelberg in Switzerland, it all began. Both had spent a couple of winter seasons in the village in the early 2000s, and now they found out that a run-down hotel was for sale. After lengthy discussions, they came to the conclusion that it was spot on: to finally quit the desk job, move down to the Alps and run a hotel. And not just any hotel. After years of travelling to different ski destinations, they knew what they really missed on a mountain vacation – a place where the staff knows exactly where the snow is best, good cuisine and wine, and well-designed rooms.

Service

Our weapons of choice are big smiles, outstanding service, sharing local knowledge and a warm welcoming to Ski Lodge Engelberg. In the end, Ski Lodge Engelberg is about the good things in life: skiing, friends, good food & wine and having fun.

What can I expect?

What do we as a company believe in? We are here to make people fall in love with the mountains. Coming to Engelberg, our guests might already have a little fling with the Alps, but we are here to make them never want to leave, fueling an urge to quit their desk jobs and ski every damn day.
