SNOOC tobogganing trail to discover, easy for the whole family. The sliding quality of the SNOOC sled makes it easy to get through the many straight passages for a comfortable descent. The maneuverability and skidding stop make the run extremely safe.

This easy toboggan run is ideal for families, beginners and children. Pleasant Snooc toboggan run, with long straight sections for long curves.

The 3.4-kilometre run takes about 30 minutes.

It is also possible to go on the slightly more difficult Horneggli Run.

Author’s recommendation

Remember to book your Snooc in advance at the resort or buy it directly on https://snooc.ski.

Increase the difficulty and discover the other toboggan runs with the tobogganing day pass.
