Both are filled with olde- worlde charm. Adelboden has a blend of rustic character and discreet modern amenities; and the quiet lanes of the resort are dotted with shops, tea rooms, restaurants and quality hotels. Lenk has been welcoming tourists since the mid 19th-century and is just as charming. SKI AREA With more than 210km of pistes, Adelboden-Lenk is one of Switzerland’s most popular ski areas, with most slopes being easy reds and cruising blues. The Chuenisbärgli zone is home to Adelboden’s famously tough Alpine World Cup slalom and giant slalom run, and further challenging descents can be found above Geils. LIFT SYSTEM More than 70 modern lifts provide fast access to the piste network. The family-orientated Lenk- Betelberg area is connected with the main slopes by cross-town ski bus. OFF-PISTE There’s a fair amount of ungroomed inter-piste spaces to appeal to snowboarders and powder seekers, e a s y 4 1 % i n t e r m e d i a t e 5 2 % 7% BESTFOR FAMILIES The high Engstligenalp plateau above Unter dem Berg features a designated freeride zone and is a popular ski-tour access point. APRES-SKI Nightlife in Adelboden is generally laid-back and rather upmarket. There’s a nice selection of bars and tea rooms, and plenty of après-ski jolliness as the slopes close. And the resort is a week-long, full-on party when 40,000 fans of the annual Alpine World Cup tour come to town (9-10 January 2017). WINTER FUN Teens will head for the Gran Masta Snow Park near Adelboden. There’s lovely winter hiking on the Adelboden sun terrace, as well as cross-country skiing trails, and tobogganing. Adelboden is also an accredited alpine wellness resort and has several superb spas. 11 ADELBODEN-LENKISSWITZERLAND’S THIRDMOST-VISITEDSKIAREA 11
