From Riederalp Mitte, head eastwards to the valley station of the Gletscherbahn Moosfluh combi-lift. It’s then just a few minutes by gondola up to Moosfluh view point – a fantastic vantage point overlooking the Great Aletsch Glacier as well as the start of the sledge run. From there you sledge back down via “Scheene Bodu” and Gopplerlücke to the Moosfluh valley station on Riederalp. Accompanying you all the way down the high-speed sledge run: fabulous views of the Valais mountains. Please note: sledges can be hired at the local sports stores.
