If you don’t have a Skibock, then you’re not really from Adelboden! In the olden days, children used the Skibock (consisting of a sawn-off ski, a vertical piece of wood and a horizontal wooden board which is used as seat) to go to school. Today, the Skibock is a must-have item for everyone from Adelboden. Those who prefer a more classic approach have a huge number of sleds to choose from. In total, there are more than 100 km of tobogganing runs in the Bernese Oberland.
The longest tobogganing run in the world promises a lot of fun. The “Big Pintenfritz” can be found in the Jungfrau Ski Region. At 2681 m above sea level, from the summit of the Faulhorn the 15-km-long tobogganing run descends via the Bussalp to Grindelwald. However, in order to enjoy the pleasure of this fast-paced descent, you will first have to hike for 2 ½ hours to the summit of the Faulhorn.
