Activity overview

Take the stress away as you spend a day in one of Europe’s biggest ski resorts! Our guides will help you get to the resort, navigate around and find the best slopes to suit your group's ability.

Adelboden has over 200 Kilometres of prepared slopes and our guides will help you find the best ones for your group. There are slopes for all abilities but if you have never skied or snowboarded before we would recommend Oeschinensee for the first few days and having professional lessons to help you get the basics. This activity can be booked to take place from January 5th!
