The Axalp sledging run starts with a chair lift ride from Windegg and offers a spectacular view over the ice-crested giants of the Bernese Oberland throughout. Aside from the initial section, which is slightly steeper, this intermediate sledging run passes through snow-covered pine forests and varied countryside. Source: myswitzerland.com
