Sled run Hochwurzen
moderate Toboggan · Schladming
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 sled run takes you back to the valley terminal of the cable-car - so multiple runs are easily possible. 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! On top of that, you enjoy a great view to the Dachstein massif from Hochwurzen summit.
The toboggan run starts at Hochwurzenhütte chalet and runs down along the Hochwurzenstraße road (in winter closed for the toboggan run) to the valley terminal of the Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen cable-car.
From Schladming into the direction of Rohrmoos, at the roundabout Rohrmoos straight ahead to the Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen cable-car.

Tobogganing - as a hobby - is not a difficult sport. However, a minimum level of stamina and flexibility is required. Do not sled beyond your means, be careful at blind bends of the track and especially take care in the evening! Also, please DO NOT use the ski slopes for tobogganing!
