Sledding in the Silvretta mountain range. What at first sounds like a daring venture soon turns out to be a wonderful tobogganing adventure. The toboggan run at Lake Silvrettasee runs along the northern flank of the Silvretta ski lift, facing Galtür, which is also your tobogganing direction. This ski lift is also your transport to get back up to your starting point. The Silvretta ski lift has a special device for transporting the sledge. This device is only compatible with the toboggan rental service of Silvretta-Haus*** and the Piz Buin mountain inn. For this reason, the track may only be used with a rental sled. Both toboggan rentals are located directly on site. We recommend contacting the Silvretta-Haus*** or the Berggasthof Piz Buin in advance.
Do not play the solo entertainer but go sledding in a group.
Remember to book your Snooc in advance at the resort or buy it directly on snooc.ski
