If you are in the mood for a change from skiing or boarding, we recommend a hearty toboggan run on the 2,500 m long toboggan run (run no. 7) from the mountain station to the valley station of the new 8-seater gondola lift "Bürgeralpe Express". Sleds are also available for rent at the valley station.

The toboggan run also invites you to a hearty toboggan run in the evening! Equipped with 33 lights, the toboggan run can be used safely at night.

Scheduled dates for evening tobogganing are available on request or can be found on the website!

From some places you have an excellent view of the Erlaufsee!
