While the town of Engelberg in Central Switzerland sits at a relatively low 1050m, high above it is the towering peak of Titlus and at 3293m it is a mountain with a seemingly endless choice of off piste runs and one that attracts freeriders from all over the world.
This film was shot last winter, which was well below-average for most regions in the European Alps, including Engelberg. However, above the snow-line Engelberg is renowned for consistently having one of the deepest bases in the Alps and it steeps and open bowls were holding some nice snow.
The film features a crew of mainly local skiers and snowboarders and despite the cheesy narration, Freeride Symphony shows you what Engelberg is all about.
From the producers
In loving memory of Tof Henry.
“We follow a sworn group of passionate riders who live in the small alpine town of Engelberg. Together they embark on a daring mission into unknown realms in the hope of finding the perfect moment. Whether it’s accompanying their friends on a powder day, conquering the steep slopes or riding into the sunset – everyone has their own idea of what that moment is. The only question is whether you can find it so close to home.”
