The hosts wanted with passion
The self-service concept is maintained. Furniture, room arrangements, food and drink options at almost 2,000 meters above sea level will be new.

If the schedule could be met, the implementation work would be completed by the end of autumn 2022.
The conversion, which has a budget of around one to two million francs, is planned for the non-operational period from the end of the winter season 2022/23, so that the guests can be welcomed in the new coat in the summer of 2023.
Those responsible are now focusing on filling the vacant position in the culinary management (individual or couple) and finding a successor who can identify with the values of the “VogellisiBerg” brand and the lady of Adelboden grass.
Markus Hostettler emphasizes that they are looking for someone who runs the business with the same commitment and has hospitality in his blood. It would be good for Bergbahnen Adelboden AG if the new host came from the region or was deeply rooted in the region.
