Guided Skiing & Snowboarding - Kandersteg

Activity overview

Take the stress away! Our guides will help you get to the resort, navigate around and find the best slopes to suit your groups ability.

Oeschinensee is a great place for beginners or to warm up and help you get back into skiing or snowboarding. If you have professional lessons booked, your guide will help you get there and if needed, join the lesson as well to help out the instructor with any weaker members of the group. After the lesson, they can help the group to focus on what they have learnt as the day goes on. Professional lessons are not essential for this activity, providing that your group all know how to ski or snowboard safely.
