While some resorts in Switzerland have been bike-focused for years, it was unique to ride in a destination that hasn’t been overly developed and still offers a traditional Swiss experience. From the town of Engelberg, it’s a leisurely peddle through the timeless village to the bike friendly lifts. The Trübsee/Jochpass lift will give you access to the 3 bike-specific trails in the area: The Jochpass Trail, Hells Bells and Trudy Trail. The Jochpass trail is the first machine cut trail in Engelberg and it was designed with the intention of giving the rider the feeling of snowboarding. This trail is currently 4.5 km long and descends 400 gloriously flowy meters to the stunning Trübsee Lake. The Jochpass trail will eventually extend another 700 meters to the valley floor. Trudy Trail starts just beside the Jochpass trail and is a fun, slightly more technical downhill trail. On the backside of the Jochpass is Hells Bells, offering some super fun singletrack that flows seamlessly through the natural terrain. Engelberg is a destination with a rich history in winter sports and I’m excited about their careful expansion into a mountain bike destination.

To really appreciate everything this area has to offer, go up any of the lifts and start exploring. On our 3-day shoot we spent our time riding all around Jochpass and Fürenalp. With over 500 km of trails for all abilities, we felt like the options were limitless. We met many friendly locals along the way and took our time to enjoy the scenery at the mountain huts, refueling on delicious Rösti, coffee and Swiss cheeses.

“ENgelberg may have some of the best light in the alps!” -KC Deane

There’s something special about being in the mountains here. The light constantly moves through the valley, creating shifting shadows that transform the landscape. KC nailed it when he said “Engelberg may have some of the best light in the alps.” and I have to agree. I think we will all be dreaming about chasing the shadows in Engelberg until we can return.
