Try a new experience by using Snooc sledge snowshoe at night
The Hochwurzen toboggan run is also open in the evening (usually from 25.12. to the end of March) from Monday to Saturday and is one of the longest natural toboggan runs in the Alps.
Almost 7 km long natural toboggan run Hochwurzen is a perfect complement to the skiing pleasure on the 123 km of slopes of the Schladming 4-Hills-Skischaukel and offers tobogganing fun for night owls and romantics! In the evening, the toboggan run on the Hochwurzen Monday to Saturday is illuminated from 7 pm to 11:30 pm - the Hochwurzen summit cable car takes you to the starting point on the summit of the Hochwurzen between 7 pm and 9:30 pm.
From there, the toboggan run takes you directly back to the valley station of the Gipfelbahn, so that in one evening - besides a cosy stop at the hut - you can enjoy several lively toboggan runs! The huts - located directly at the toboggan run, well distributed from the starting point to the finish - also offer enough space for larger groups. From the summit you also have a great view over the illuminated Enns Valley at night.
Rest stopsSeiterhütte & Celtic Bar
Tobogganing - as a hobby - is basically not a difficult sport, but a basic level of fitness and mobility is still required. Don't go beyond your means, be careful of confusing places and be even more careful, especially when tobogganing in the evening! Please do NOT sledge on the ski slope down to the valley!
