Igloo Festival on Engstligenalp

The snow stays in the igloo village
You're building for yourself, You're building for the big prize, You're building for an unforgettable night at 2000 m (6562 ft.) above sea level. For the 7th time now, highly qualified candidates will face some ice cold competition at the Igloo Festival on Engstligenalp. Before the eyes of the knowledgeable judges, a whole village of creative snow homes will emerge in no time at all over the weekend of 17-18 March - a village, please note, in which the builders will then spend the night. Last but not least, Adelboden Tourism, Adelboden Alpine School, Engstligenalp Mountain Transport and Sherpa Outdoor are organising a fantastic supporting programme.
