It is also recommended to try out the handmade ski racks, which can be rented at the valley station. The trail is prepared daily in good snow and weather conditions. Sledges or Skibock(Gemel) can be rented at the valley station (Fr. 8.- per sledge or Skibock / depot Fr. 20.-)

Author’s recommendation

Night sledging every Saturday, when snow conditions are good. (The toboggan run is not lit, make sure you have suitable lighting).
