Tschentenalp trail - Adelboden



2.11 km long

The Tschentenalp trail, which is signed with blue route markers, starts right next to the top station. On the first part you will follow the ridge of the Tschentenegg in a north-easterly direction. You will be kept company on the one side by skiers whistling past you and, on the other, by the impressive panorama towards Frutigen. At the alpine chalets on the Tschentenegg, you will leave the ridge to the north and descend through powder snow to the Tschenten forest. The uniform slope is a real pleasure to walk down in snowshoes and can be mastered in no time. A little above the edge of the forest the trail now turns to the left and, keeping to the same height, leads across to the bottom station of the Möser chairlift. This will take you back in comfort to the top station of the gondola lift.
