I was concerned over what we would find to do in Switzerland on New Year's Day since just about every site, activity, and restaurant will be closed for the holiday, so I was relieved when told that all slopes would be open! The holiday is, in fact, a major ski day for Europeans.

Several of the girls in our group have never skied before and will be taking lessons. A 3 hour group lesson is 67 CHF per person. Private lessons for groups up to 10 people are 145 CHF for 2 hours.
Adelboden has many cross-country trails, walking and snowshoeing paths, and numerous mountain restaurants. There is also a professionally designed snowboarding park with three kicklines, a slide zone, an obstacle course and an airpark. I have no idea what any of those things are, but they sound like terrific fun!
