Ski World Cup, Chuenisbärgli

Audi FIS Ski World Cup Adelboden

08 – 09 January 2022

Every year, the FIS Ski World Cup in Adelboden attracts around 40,000 fans. For this one weekend, the village near the Wildstrubel mountain is turned into a hive of activity with fans cheering on the stars of the slopes.

For more than 60 years, the ski races in Adelboden have been popular. The World Cup event, which is also known as Chuenisbärgli, after the mountain where it takes place, has a set sequence of events which has become a tradition. After the fans’ arrival by train via Bern or Brig to Frutigen, a special bus service brings them to the location which transforms for a short period of time into the stronghold of ski racing. The drawing of the start numbers is a spectacular event in itself when the competitors sail on a zip wire across the spectators’ heads. On Saturday, there is a carnival atmosphere in the finish area when the professionals compete in the giant slalom race. In the evening, the skiers head to the traditional party at the Märitplatz where they are being celebrated by the fans who always create an amazing and unique atmosphere throughout the World Cup.
