Activity overview

Easily accessible from Kandersteg via public transport, the Adelboden ski resort is one of the largest in Europe with slopes to suit any level of skier.

Adelboden is located 50 minutes from Kandersteg by public transport and is one of the biggest ski areas in Switzerland. It has slopes to suit all levels from beginners to advanced skiers, a fast modern lift system, and takes several days to fully explore. We sell both ski
passes and 1 day Snow and Rail passes (which include return travel costs by train and bus). Reduced price
tickets are available for groups of more than 10 and for families. For a full list of prices, including winter hiking passes, please visit our website. If you are a group of 20 or more people, we can organise coach transport to and from the resort which can work out cheaper and more convenient than the Snow and Rail option.


Opening times will vary depending on the date of the season and the weather conditions. Please check with our reception for current information.
