The Adelboden way to go sledding reminds one of riding a unicycle, but it is easier to learn. And it is much more fun. Especially if one builds the Skibock oneself. Adelboden offers an entire event program where the Skibock is built and tested under expert guidance. After the nighttime sledding party, the "Swiss-certified Skibock builders" are rewarded with a fondue dinner.

History of the Skibock
Sometime between 1920 and 1930, a family from Stiegelschwand in Adelboden took their old wooden staves without flanges (made from old barrels), screwed on a piece of wood at 90 degrees and mounted another plank onto that so it lay above and parallel to the ski below – the ultimate fun winter sport accessory had been created.

Today the wooden seat is screwed onto sawn-down skis and children in Adelboden have used this means of transport for many years to get to school more quickly in the winter months.
So the Skibock has moved from being a practical object to a showpiece and now to an “Adelboden must” when it comes to winter sports equipment.
