Visitor Reviews of Adelboden
Hans from Netherlands writes:
This year was my first time in Adelboden, Switzerland (we usually go to Austri)a. I (think I) am an advanced skier. I liked Adelboden for the possibilities. Most of the lifts were fairly new with hoods and one even had heated seats. Some tow lifts and one or two older lifts. When we were there we had lots of snow. Pistes were adequately groomed and many opportunities to go outside of the piste to get some deeper powder snow. People were friendly and the area is beautiful.
What I did not like were the prices. We paid 310 Euros for a 7-day lift pass. Coffee was €5,50, a bowl of soup: €8. Parking was €5 per day (this was the first time I had to pay for this; never in Austria) and a ski locker was €8 per day per person. And above all this you have to pay 4,20F Kurtax per person per day. What you get for this amount was in no way visible for me.
What I also missed were the cosy huts, on the piste, where you can sit and get something to drink. Most of them were so basic; I have seen better canteens in factories.
On the bright side, it being so expensive kept people away so there were never any waiting lines at the lifts. Every disadvantage has it advantage ;-)
I am not sure if we would come again to Switzerland. Maybe if the prices drop a little.
