Tobogganing - pure fun with South Tyrol toboggan runs in Racines/Ratschings and Vipiteno/SterzingWhile previously toboggans served as a means of transport for carrying wood and hay into the valley, an enthralling toboggan run is now an adventure for young and old these days.
There are lots of opportunities around for those who want to enjoy tobogganing in winter. Several toboggan tracks of varying length and difficulty await you in our holiday region.
Toboggan run in Racines/Ratschings
The 5 km long natural toboggan run in the Racines-Giovo ski area is always well prepared. With the new 8-seater cabin lift, easy access to start directly from the summit station is offered.
Toboggan run at the Monte Cavallo/Rosskopf lift (length: 10 km!)
The Monte Cavallo lift in Vipiteno/Sterzing is home to Italy's longest toboggan run! A phenomenal 10 km stretch takes you from the summit station through orbit down to Vipiteno: The toboggan run is snow-speckled and snow is guaranteed until spring. Illuminated in the evening.
Toboggan run of the Prantner Alm lodge (length: 3.4 km)
You will find this absolutely family-friendly toboggan run not far from Vipiteno. You can enjoy a magnificent view over the Wipptal valley from the Alpine lodge. Afterwards you are able to go into the valley merrily with the toboggan upon the broad military road.
