"The figures confirm what we have long since suspected: the winter season has been an excellent one. After a successful start to the season the cableway operators recorded high numbers of visitors over Christmas and the New Year. One particularly out-standing highpoint consisted of the FIS Ski World Cup races held on January 10/11." said a resort spokesperson.
Sunny days were generally only interrupted by periods of intense snowfall, contributing to the perfect winter-sport conditions which have lasted right until the end of the season.
The ski region generated a turnover of 37 million Swiss Francs in the winter season 2008/09, up two million Swiss Francs or about 5% in comparison with the previous season with sales of SFr 35 million.
Adelboden hoteliers have also reported pleasing figures with over 110,000 overnight stays between November 2008 and April 2009.
