South Tyrol, from east to the west, offers best conditions for a speedy ride on two runners - also by moonlight.
South Tyrol’s toboggan runs are spread all over South Tyrol, from the village of Resia in the Val Venosta valley in the west to Sesto in the upper Val Pusteria valley in the east. Some of them are located in skiing areas and therefore comfortably reachable by cable cars, whereas others can be best combined with a hike through the winter wonderland of the Dolomites. Many mountain huts are open also during winter and invite to a hot drink or offer even a toboggan rental.
To ensure safety, you should follow a few simple rules: ascend in a row and follow the inner curves of the toboggan run in order to keep clear the run for descending tobogganists, practise braking before the toboggan ride, and leave the toboggan run immediately in case of an accident. The right equipment includes a helmet, warm clothing, sturdy shoes and ski goggles as well as a headlamp. Also full moon tobogganing enjoys great popularity: at full moon and clear sky the toboggan run is lit by natural light and offers a magical experience in South Tyrol!
In order to protect the health of guests and the local population, the winter season 2019/20 was closed earlier this year, on 11 March 2020. This is a preventive measure against the further spread of the COVID-19 disease.
