Classic wooden sledge, bob or luge?
Where can you go sledding?
In principle, you can toboggan on all snow-covered hills or mountains. Some you can walk up on foot, others you can take the cable car up.
In many ski areas there are specially prepared toboggan runs. These are clearly marked and strictly separated from ski slopes. These toboggan runs may only be used after prior approval by the operator. Most of the ski areas also offer sledge rental, some of the runs are floodlit at night.
- warm and waterproof footwear with a good profile
- warm and waterproof clothes and gloves; you might want to take another set of clothes with you if the ascent is strenuous and you expect to sweat a lot.
- helmet; especially kids should always wear one.
- ski goggles
- headlamp for night sledding
- sun protection
Traffic rules for sledge drivers
- Both on the ascent and the descent, keep to the right side. If you are with a group, always run and ride one after the other. This way you can avoid dangerous situations with oncoming sledgers.
- Always ride carefully and stay ready to brake - especially if you do not know the course of the track.
- Never stop in a confusing place.
- Cross icy places, slopes and roads with utmost caution.
- Memorize difficult parts of the toboggan run (e.g. sharp turns and obstacles).
- Never lie head first on your sled. Braking is hardly possible in this position.
