The Steinberg freeride run leads over the glacier and is one of the BIG 5 of Engelberg.

On the descent over the Steinberg from Klein Titlis to Trübsee there are various possibilities. All variants lead in upper part over the glacier. There is a danger of crevasses. The classic "S" is the simplest and most rewarding option around the larger crevasse zone. Further variants are: "GaF" (Ganz am Fels), left of the cable car and "Never Sun".

Notes There is a risk of cracks and falls! 3020m.a.s.l. - 1764m.a.s.l.

For a carefree day in the powder snow, we recommend you have trained mountain guides and ski instructors who will accompany you safely through the terrain. Inform yourself in advance about the current avalanche and weather conditions.
