Sled Runs of Ortler Ski Arena

Winter Fun on Two Runners

Sledging enjoys a great deal of popularity in the homeland of world and Olympic luge champion Armin Zöggeler. The most passionate of sledging enthusiasts venture out onto the high-speed artificial ice tracks while leisure sledders appreciate the many diverse natural trails of Ortler Skiarena. There are also a good number of illuminated sled runs that stay open into the evenings for night owls to enjoy.

One of the most popular sled runs of Ortler Skiarena is the 10-km-long track at Monte Cavallo (Rosskopf) Ski Area. The longest floodlit sled run in Italy, the ADAC named it the winner of its track tests: the best in German-speaking Europe.

In our new brochure, you will find everything you need to know about sledding safety at Ortler Skiarena − complete with tips from world luge champion Reinhard Gruber.

Sleds are usually available at the ski hire depots at the various ski areas and at many of the mountain huts along the sled runs.
