Family Sports on Two Runners at Ortler Ski Arena

Winter Fun on Two Runners

Sledging is a communal sport for groups, friends and – first and foremost − for families. The sport enjoys great popularity in South Tyrol since the region has such a long tradition of sledging. Snow-blanketed and well-groomed paths, child-friendly and safe descents into the valley, and extraordinary views of the surrounding snow-capped mountain peaks await sledding enthusiasts at Ortler Skiarena. Far removed from the hustle and bustle of the large resorts, the whole family will enjoy a very special sledging experience here, immersed in nature and surrounded by snow.

In the new brochure, you’ll find out everything you need to know about safety while sledding at Ortler Skiarena – complete with tips from world luge champion Reinhard Gruber.

    The starting point of this toboggan ride is located right next to the summit station of the Merano 2000 Cable Car, and is thus easy to access without a car. A ride on the toboggan track is as much fun for adults as it is for the kids; in some sections, the two-seater car runs 12 metres above the ground.

    Track Data:
    Length of Uphill Track: around 350 m
    Length of Downhill Track: around 1,100 m
    Altitude Differential: around 150 m
    Uphill Ride: 4–5 minutes
    Downhill Ride: 3–5 minutes

    Children over 10 years of age are permitted to drive without an adult. At the end of the ride, all Alpine Bob drivers have the opportunity at the start house to obtain a souvenir photo, with their actual speed listed.

    From the upper station at Bergkastel (2,200 metres), an 8-km toboggan run winds down the mountain into the valley—this is winter fun for the whole family. You start right at the Bergkastel lift upper station, at 2,200 metres above sea level. Incidentally, Nauders is the first resort to be awarded the Tiroler Toboggan Seal of Quality for two toboggan runs.
