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 8th 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 16-17 March - a village, please note, in which the builders will then spend the night. Last but not least, TALK AG, Adelboden Alpine School an Engstligenalp Mountain Transport are organising a fantastic supporting programme.
