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.
- No walking on the ski pistes.
- Be considerate towards other sledgers.
- Your speed and riding style must match your ability. Sledgers must ride in such a way that they can respond safely to any hazards. They must match their speed and riding style to their ability and to the terrain, snow and weather conditions, as well as to the traffic density
- Stay seated at all times; no riding head-first or lying down; sledges may not be tied together
- Respect the lane of the person ahead. The sledger coming from behind must choose their lane so as to not endanger sledgers in front of them.
- Leave plenty of space when overtaking
