10 tips for unforgettable sledging adventures
- Respect others: Be careful not to cause dangerous situations for other people on the toboggan run.
- Respect closures and warning signs: Only use the toboggan run when it’s open!
- Use appropriate equipment: Use the high-quality sledges provided at the toboggan run. Wear a helmet and solid footwear. For safety reasons, plastic sleds and saucer sleds are prohibited on the toboggan run.
- Follow the signs: Keep to the marked sledging trail and hike up the mountain one after another on the righthand side. Only cross the toboggan run when absolutely necessary and only at sections with a clear view.
- Ride carefully: Go at a speed that allows you to fully control your sledge. Make sure that visibility is good, keep a distance to the next rider and adjust your speed and technique to your abilities. Pay attention to the snow, ice and weather conditions and to the number of other people on the toboggan run.
- Warn others of potential risks: If fellow sledgers don’t notice you on their way up, shout to get noticed. Tip: Headlamps and reflective clothing make you more visible in the dark.
- Avoid unnecessary stops: If you want the rest of your group to catch up, only stop at sections with clear visibility.
- Only use the marked run: Sledging on ski runs is not only dangerous, it’s also prohibited due to the high risk of crashes with skiers or snowcats. What’s more, frozen sledge tracks affect the quality of the slope.
- Leave dogs at home: Holding on to your sledge with one hand and to your dog’s lead with the other – please don’t do that! It significantly reduces your reaction time in case of emergencies. For safety reasons, it’s better to leave your dog at home.
- Be prepared to help others: Don’t drink before sledging and don’t take any medication that impacts on your ability to drive. You can only assess risks correctly and administer first aid in case of an emergency if your perception and reactions are not impaired.
