best season

Sledging fun next to and above the famous Lauberhorn downhill run.

4.5 kilometres of toboggan run right next to the Lauberhorn run: here tobogganists are closer to the racers than anywhere else. On the sometimes challenging, carefully prepared track, they can sled just as tactically as these. Which is the smartest line? How can the momentum be better exploited? If you think smart as a fox on the Fox Run, you'll really pick up speed right after the start on the Wengernalp and arrive with a shot at the finish, the Wengen train station. To get back up right away and make it even better on the next round. Tip: If you go down fast enough, you can just about make it without waiting for the next train at Wengernalp. Toboggan until the runners glow!
