From Nüegg summit station, a freshly groomed sledging run takes you through the pine forest and down into the valleys. The new fast route also offers a challenge for advanced sledgers. The run is 5 kilometres in length.

On Fridays the piste can also be used at night. Before your descent into the valley, we recommend a delicious fondue at the Berghotel Wiriehorn.
