Full review

I visited Kandersteg a few years ago while on a Boy Scout trip to the International Scout Center there. Kandersteg is a cool mountain town, and obviously a center for all-year round adventure. (I've been in the summer as well.) Plenty of decent places to eat, but don't expect high-energy night life. You have to ride an old, slow double chair to get up the mountain, but the view is nice...you can look over and see ice climbers on the cliffs across the valley. Not much here to challenge the advanced skier, but a nice place to start kids off (assuming you live in Europe..i wouldn't come all the way from the states to ski here, obviously.)
