One of the top ski destinations in Switzerland is Adelboden. Adelboden ski resort is a set off of a larger ski complex the Adelboden-Lenk Ski area. Considering that there are 3 airports and many cities around with good bus lines, Adelboden is perfect choice not only for longer ski holidays, but ski holidays that will last just a day or two.
Adelboden ski area has over 200 km of ski tracks and 570 ski lifts which have capacity of 50 000 guests per hour.
Area is split into five smaller areas which are all tied up with state of the art ski lift systems. Ski sectors start at 1000 meters above the sea level and stretch up to 2400 meters above the sea level. Since the most ski tracks oriented to north, snow is preserved over whole ski season. Ski tracks range from tracks for beginners to the most challenging tracks such as Chuenisbergli (FIS World Cup track). Adelboden slalom and GS tracks are considered as standard in FIS skiing.
There is an exquisite completely natural (natural pipes, obstacles and jumps) snow board park in Engsligenalp. Engligenalp is also home for many of the world famous ski boarder, which uses this track and center as a training camp. Freestyle ski boarders would probably like more Hahnenmoos snowboard park. This is also the place which you will pick if you are newcomer to the snowboard world because of many snowboard schools and private trainers around.
Accommodation is available on every corner. Among many hotels such as The Cambrian Hotel, Hotel Steinmattly, Hotel Bristol, Hotel Bellevue there are many private solutions too. You can rent virtually whole houses, bungalows or studio apartments.
Adelboden nightlife is very rich. Dozen of bars and cafés together with guests from virtually whole world (but mostly Europe) will provide you with enough fun for the winter evenings. Restaurants are good with many Italian style oriented pizzerias and bistros.
Among bars you should check Berna Bar, Time Out Bar, Tipi Bar, Andys Pubs, Bistro Grand Bazar and many snow bars right near the tracks…
Prices of food, ski pass, equipment renting and accommodation are moderate, “Switzerland moderate”.
