From the mountain station of the Riederalp Mitte cable car, walk east to the valley station of Gletscherbahn Moosfluh. From there, ride up to the Blausee middle station, where you take possession of your mountain cart. The fun sports vehicle is a cross between a go-kart and a sledge, and its three wide wheels, low sitting position and hydraulic brakes make it very safe. The mountain cart trail takes you down a dirt road from Blausee to the valley station of Gletscherbahn Moosfluh. On the 2.8km ride, you pass Restaurant Chüestall and Gopplerlücke. Please note: The minimum age for mountain-cart hire is 10 years. Children up to the age of 16 must be accompanied on the downhill ride by an adult.

Author’s recommendation

An ideal place to replenish the energy levels of hungry mountain-cart drivers is the barbecue area at Blausee – Matterhorn views thrown in for free.
