Our view on Kandersteg

A small and traditional ski resort, Kandersteg is a hidden gem and best for cross-country skiing, beginners and those who want to chill out. It you want a huge ski area and use a sat nav to guide you around a spiders web of pistes such as in The Three Valleys, Kandersteg is not for you.

It is however a great family ski holiday resort with excellent ski schools and creche facilities. For more information Kandersteg ski holidays please see our resort guide.
