On 4 kilometres, from Rigi Burggeist to Gschwänd, piste raudis. The start is at 1551 metres above sea level, in Rigi Burggeist. Via the Gätterlipass, the piste runs down to Gschwänd, where the Obergschwend-Rigi Burggeist cable car takes tobogganists back to Rigi Burggeist. Sledging does not require any special technical knowledge and can be practised by anyone. 

You can find the current operating status of the lifts and sledge runs here.

So that future generations can also enjoy the queen of the mountains, we ask you to dispose of your waste at the stations.

Thank you.
