Adelboden makes a big effort for families with a number of ski schools offering special ski kindergarten classes from age three upwards. Specially trained ski instructors lead groups where the ski races and children’s parties are particularly popular.
Children aged under six receive a free Snowli Ski Card which means they can use all lifts in the region free of charge. Older children up to age 16 get healthy discounts on the adult price and are offered free skiing all day on Engstligenalp on Wednesdays too. There are further savings when family groups buy tickets of the same type and duration together.
Off the slopes there’s plenty to do including extensive toboggan runs and an activities programme that ranges from organised climbing to indoor activities such as baking.
