best season

The 6-km-long toboggan run leads from the Leiterli top station to the Hubelmatte in Pöschenried. A shuttle bus (ticket required) operates to provide return transport to the bottom station of the Betelberg gondola lift.

The toboggan run turns off to the right shortly after the Leiterli and follows the same route as the scooter run in summer. Turn by turn, the run snakes its way down to Pöschenried. On the last section there will be occasional oncoming traffic (see map / there is a warning sign on the route). Having arrived in Pöschenried, you have a choice: you can walk along the road to the village or take the toboggan bus. Take note: the toboggan bus only operates when the toboggan run is open!
