Obviously, skiing and snowboarding are Adelboden’s biggest draws during the winter months, and downhill devotees of all abilities flock here for the worldclass facilities at Silleren, Adelboden-Lenk, Elsigen-Metsch, Tschentenalp, Engstligenalp and Betelberg. All the local sports stores offer equipment for hire, and guides are available from the Adelboden Snowsport School. But if you do fancy a day or two away from the pistes, the Adelboden-Frutigen region also offers more than 15km of maintained sledging routes – so why not borrow one of The Cambrian’s toboggans and hurtle, Santa Claus-like, through the freshly fallen snow instead?
