• Toboggan

The toboggan fun can begin

There is hardly anything as fun as sledding down a valley. Whether it be alone on a luge or a couple on a family sled - the fun factor is always there.

And if one were to ever fall off into the powdery snow, one would just need to get back on the sled and continue with the laughing and cheering - the chase continues.

Lets be honest: everyone wants to be the first one down. But actually it does not matter who makes it to the finish line first. The amount of “yuhuuu” shouting should be measured. Having fun is obviously worth much more than being the fastest.

three different toboggan runs

Tobogganing is he ideal sport for family and friends alike. No particular prerequisites are needed, except a little bit of skill and a positive attitude. Understanding how to use a toboggan is easy – basically you just need to sit on it and use your legs as breaks before curves and strong hills. And therefore it shouldn’t come as a surprise that one is able to conquer three different toboggan runs in Saalbach-Hinterglemm. The Reiterkogel, Spielberghaus and Maisalm.

The toboggan run on the Reiterkogel is 3.2 km in length, and is open daily from 8:30 to 16:15 and Monday to Saturday from 18:00 to 21:30 (illuminated till 23.00). For security reasons, this toboggan run may only be used with custom toboggans.

The toboggan run Spielberghaus is about 3 km in length. It takes about a 45-minute walk to reach the “Spielberg house”. But you can also get a pickup at the "Saalbach Spielberg curve" at 12:00 or 17:00 up until 9:00 p.m.

Pickups are every 45 minutes by a snow groomer (advance booking required: +43 6541/7253).

The toboggan run Maisalm is slightly shorter than the others being only 2km in length, but it is only a 25 minutes walk away.
