Klewenalp Ski Resort Switzerland

Klewenalp ski resort Switzerland is located beautifully above Lake Lucerne and is close to the superb Engelberg. After a good snowfall, powder skiing opportunities are plentiful and the potential 1551m skiable vertical down to the lake is a tasty treat indeed.

Information about this European ski resort is coming soon.

The Powderhounds reviewed Klewenalp in 2018, stay tuned for our photos and insights.
