The tour

On top of 123 kilometers of ski slopes, Schladming's 4 mountain ski area also offers one of the longest toboggan runs in the Alps. The almost 7 km long toboggan run is open daily during cable-car operating times. Monday to Saturday it is also illuminated in the evenings from 7 pm to 11:30 pm - the cable-car then is operating from 7 pm to 9:30 pm. The Hochwurzen toboggan run is among the most attractive and well-groomed runs in Austria.

The Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen cable-car takes tobogganists up to the summit of Hochwurzen. From there the track takes you back to the valley terminal  The cable car offers enough space in its pods to transport the sleds, which can be rented close by the valley terminal. The starting point of the sled run is located directly on the Hochwurzen summit.Sledding is a unique, romantic pleasure on two runners in the middle of nature and winter. Stopping off for food is part of it – and you won’t miss out on Hochwurzen. The lodges are well distributed between the starting and finishing points of the sled run and offer enough space even for large groups!
