Adelboden is a beautiful and buzzing traditional Alpine village located in the Bernese-Oberland region of Switzerland. Home to one of the Audi Ski World Cup fixtures, its reputation for great skiing can’t be beaten.
Adelboden gives you over 210km of skiing to enjoy, with guaranteed snow on 60% of its pistes due to its high altitude. With plenty of family-friendly runs, as well as a wide variety of more challenging pistes and cross-country skiing to boot. The resort offers easy access to five separate ski areas: Sillerenbuhl, Tschentenalp, Engstligenalp, Elsigenalp and Lenk, so even the pickiest of powder hounds are sure to be in their element. Of all the pistes you can enjoy in Adelboden, the most famous and probably most difficult is the ChuenisbärgliWorld Cup giant slalom. If you’re not quite up to having a go on that, however, we would recommend the 5.5km and 700m drop run from Lavey to Aebi for beautiful views and an exciting descent.
