Top 10 sledging runs

Valais, Bernese Oberland or maybe the Engadin. These 10 sledging runs have it all, be it the panorama, the route or the extra boost of adrenaline. But the best thing about these sledging runs is their location, as they are easily accessible from our youth hostels.

Muottas Muragl

Not far from our two youth hostels in Pontresina and St. Moritz is the Romantik Hotel Muottas Muragl, the starting point for the bravest sledging enthusiasts to plunge into adventure. Over a length of 4 km, the run winds down the mountain with around 20 curves.

Preda Bergün

Sledging on a UNESCO World Heritage route – yes, it’s possible. The slope leads from Preda to Bergün on the closed pass road. Speed through snow-covered forests, under the viaduct and wind your way to the railway village of Bergün, where you can sit back and relax on the train that takes you back to Preda.

Big Pintenfritz Sledging trail

The longest sledging trail run in Europe is located nowhere less than in the beautiful Bernese Oberland, more precisely in Grindelwald. With the post bus you can reach Bussalp comfortably, if you want to enjoy the sledding fun you can walk the last meters.

Wispil Run

Gstaad’s local mountain, the Wispil, has it all. After a 40-minute hike, with a breathtaking panorama, the 8 kilometres of sledging fun begins. In a good two hours, young and old alike will get their money’s worth of sledging.


Curvy and idyllic are probably the best words to describe the 11 km long descent from Kreuzboden to Saas Grund. The slope leads through small hamlets and past alpine huts, offering almost endless sledging fun.

Eiger Run

Along the foot of the Eiger, on the well-prepared sledging run directly past the world-famous north face. The sledging experience in the Bernese Oberland is also a real spectacle at night.


From the legendary Schatzalp, through the magical forest down to the world-famous village of Davos. The view of Davos and the side valleys gives the descent a nostalgic touch.


History at the foot of the Titlis. Today, the Gerschni sledging run is located on the former bobsleigh run. The slope winds through the enchanting Gerschniwald forest, then continues on a winding route down to the monastery village of Engelberg.


Two things in particular are required in the 33 hairpin bends on the Rinerhorn: Sure instincts and steering skills. The Rinerhorn cable car takes you to the summit in just ten minutes, where the sledging fun begins.

Eggli Run

The family-friendly sledging adventure starts right behind the Eggli mountain restaurant. The panoramic view of the Sanetsch and the Spitzhorn will make your heart beat faster.
