Here you find important information about your this fantastic Camp.
KICK OFF BRIEFING
We planned a kick off meeting on Thursday at 19:00 where we’ll get you introduced to your ski instructors and give more useful info about the weekend.
For anything related to the ski classes you can reach Andrea at 0786257051. For questions about arrival, rental, accommodation, etc. you can reach out Daire at 0786034858.
If you’re driving by car and you want to bring someone along with you just write on the Facebook Events or let us know.
Some good news! We’ll purchase your ski pass in advance for the first day, so you don’ have to worry about it on Friday morning. Moreover, we get group rates and you save money. Please bring cash and pay at the Chalet for your ski pass (add 5CHF deposit which you get back once you return it at the ticket office). We will decide on the 1st day if we stay in the same area, or if we move to a different area.
More good news! If you need to rent ski equipment we get 15% discount with our friends at https://www.quattrosport.ch/en/ski-rental. They are super friendly; just mention you’re staying at snoconnells with My-Mountains and you’ll get the discount. We arranged an appointment for 8:00 on Friday for the whole group. In order to facilitate and speed up the process please let us know what you need, your height and your weight.
We have 5 bedrooms at the chalet: 1 x Double, 3 x Twin, 1 x 4 single beds. If you do have a preference to share a bedroom with someone you already know who is taking part in the weekend, then please let us know and we will try and accommodate as best we can.
We love food and nutrition. Who doesn’t? Our menu plan will focus on a mix of traditional Swiss and international flavours, however, please do let us know of dietary requirements, food allergy or aversions which you may have.
By Rail: There is an Express train every hour from Zurich (Direction Luzern) to Engelberg, with only one change needed at Luzern. The trains arrive in Engelberg every hour (just before the hour at x.53.) Total journey time from Zurich HB to Engelberg is 1hrs 49minutes including the stopover in Luzern. The train from Luzern to Engelberg normally leaves from Platform 13. Trains in Switzerland mostly run on time, so please do bear this in mind.
The Swiss Train company website is very user friendly, and in English. You can buy your tickets in advance should you wish to do so. Please do by a ticket before boarding however.
For more information on the schedules and prices, then please see here: www.sbb.ch/en
Please do let us know when you are on the train from Luzern. When we have an idea of how many will arrive by Train then we can organise a shuttle from the train station to the chalet.
By Car: The journey from Zurich to Engelberg is around 1hr 10m in normal traffic. Below is a link on how to find Engelberg, however you can easily follow the signs once you leave the Zurich, direction Luzern.
Essentially once on the motorway leaving Zurich you follow the signs for the Gotthard until you go through the tunneled ring road around Luzern, and pass an exit for Stansstad. After this, keep an eye for the turn for Engelberg.
– Before coming to Engelberg there is a Suzuki Garage called Auto Portmann on the right side of the road 1km from the centre of the town.
– Just after the garage, there is a row of private garages. You can park your car here for free, nearer the street and avoiding blocking any of the garages.
– Behind the private garages there are some steps through the forest.
– Please take these stairs – and at the top to the right is snoconnells. Number 11.
– Please call Daire’s phone for luggage assistance, as we can access an elevator for check-in of guests.
