Snowsports & Hiking Weekend - a great Farewell to winter!
Looking for a great way to say farewell to winter? Then join our snowsports weekend! We'll be in a simple mountain hut in a high, remote valley with no village but some ski lifts, nordic skiing trails, (snowshoe) hiking trails and excellent backcountry skiing possibilities. -------------------------- Already tired of snowsports? Rather go hiking? Then this trip is good for you as well! See specific info a bit further below. -------------------------- This weekend will take place at Engstligenalp in the Bernese Oberland, close to Adelboden. The microclimate in the Engstligenalp valley makes that the snow season is much longer here than in other resorts. Here the ski season ends every year after the first weekend of May... Our hut (at 1.950m altitude) is simple and cosy. For dinner you can choose between cheese fondue and a vegan dish - please let me know what you prefer at the moment of signing up. The cost for this trip is CHF 135/EUR 115 per person. This covers dinner on Saturday evening, the rental of our private hut, breakfast on Sunday. I will ask you for an advance payment because I have to confirm the booking of the hut. Should I cancel the event, you will get a full refund. Should you cancel your participation, I will give you the full refund if I find someone else to take your place. Please bring a sleeping bag. Ski- and snowboard-equipment, nordic skiing equipment and snow shoes can be rented in Engstligenalp, if you're not bringing your own. Of course we're not going to do all these different snowsports all together; if you're a skier, you'll be skiing; if you're a hiker, you'll be hiking, etc. :) Join this unforgettable weekend in the snow! -------------------------- Already tired of snowsports? Rather go hiking? Then this trip is good for you as well! In that case you can make a spring time hike in the Adelboden valley, take the last cable car (15:40) up to Engstligenalp, walk 20 minutes to our hut, and then enjoy great group atmosphere, hand made Swiss cheese fondue, and a cosy night in an authentic mountain hut! Then on Sunday breakfast together and then you would go down again with the cable car, and make another hike in the Adelboden valley!

What we're about

Public Group

This is a group for people interested in hiking and skiing/snowboarding.

Mountains are a beautiful place to be, and to enjoy them together makes it even better!

For your comfort and safety, there are some rules:

• Please update your RSVP status, should your plans change. For an organizer it's important to know who is really joining.

• normally hikes and events will be without dogs; in case dogs are welcome, it will be explicitly written in the event description.

• if a payment is required, the payment method will be stated in the event description - or will be sent to you in a private message (in case of multi-day events).

• The activities in this group have a higher risk than sitting on the couch at home. Obviously this goes for sport activities such as skiing/snowboarding and mountain hiking, but it might go for things like for example hot wood stoves in the middle of a mountain hut, etc.. You are always responsible for assessing the risks yourself and you are always responsible for your own do’s and don’ts. You are yourself liable for the consequences of your own decisions. No insurance is provided on behalf of the organizer; please arrange a (travel) insurance yourself and make sure that it covers the appropriate risks (for example: are winter sports activities covered? This is not always the case).
