Adelboden Reports Business Is Up (04-May-09)

Adelboden, Switzerland, May 4, 2009 - Adelboden in Switzerland is the latest European resort to report

Adelboden in Switzerland is the latest European resort to report business up for the past winter compared to the year before.

“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, officially titled: "Adelboden-Lenk...dänk!", 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 and April.
