210 kilometres of exhilarating groomers, 72 lifts and a bumper season extending from November to May: No wonder the ski region Adelboden-Lenk is a favourite among all winter sports fans. High in the Bernese Oberland, skiers can take their pick between five ski areas, each offering a range of runs spanning all difficulties and tastes.

The largest ski area, boasting 80 kilometres of runs, links two major towns in the region, with Lenk in the Simmen valley and Adelboden in the Engstligen valley providing the access points. Beginners are best advised to take the lifts up from Lenk, as the slopes surrounding Metschstand (2,100m) and Hahnenmoos (1,957m) serve up plenty of inviting blue-marked runs. Hahnenmoos should also be the first port of call for freestylers, home as it is to the Gran Masta Park. This terrain park offers rails and jumps for skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels. From Adelboden, there is quick access to the groomers down from Sillerenbühl (1,974m) and Aebi (1,530m), both of which offer plenty in the way of eye-catching intermediate runs for advanced skiers. Experts should head for the Boden-Chuenisbärgli lift which links to the top of the area’s famous World Cup course.
