Adelboden-Lenk in the Bernese Oberland is one of the biggest and most attractive ski resort in Switzerland
Its high altitude, long-standing skiing tradition and the wide-ranging slopes make the holiday destination of Adelboden-Lenk one of the first-class ski resorts in the Swiss Alps. The ski region “Adelboden-Lenk“ contains 56 state of the art transport systems serving a piste network of over 185 km. Adelboden is a terrific winter arena where all snow sport enthusiasts get more than their money’s worth.
Well-groomed cross-country runs, sledging slopes and magical walks along the region’s sunny plateaus invite guests to discover the natural alpine landscape, stopping off at the numerous mountain guesthouses and alpine huts en route.
The Adelboden-Lenk Ski Area includes 2 Swiss Ski Resorts with a combined total of 210km of downhill skiing, with 177 individual pistes, served by 94 ski lifts. The appropriate Lift Pass allows you to ski or snowboard in either of the ski areas of Adelboden.
Adelboden-Lenk is highly rated by Snowboarders and there are a variety of Snow and Terrain Parks.
Adelboden is also a permanent feature on the FIS Ski World Cup calendar. The giant slalom and the slalom on the Chuenisbärgli peak are classic alpine ski events, attracting over 20,000 spectators to the village dominated by the majestic Wildstrubel, every year. These highlights are complemented by the Adelboden cross-country ski night and the “Old Tavern” cultural centre as a stronghold of the Swiss music scene, both of which attract intense media coverage.
However a star-struck in-crowd and celebrity airs and graces are not a prominent feature of the village. Here, things take a more leisurely course, in a completely informal atmosphere. Guests appreciate Adelboden’s proverbial “cosiness and calm“.
On 9th July 2005, the Alpine Wellness International GmbH also crowned Adelboden the first Alpine Wellness Holiday Destination in Switzerland.
