From Riederalp Mitte you walk in an easterly direction to the valley station of the Moosfluh combined glacier lift. The cable car takes you up to the Moosfluh View Point in a few minutes - a fantastic vantage point with a view of the Great Aletsch Glacier and the start of the toboggan run at the same time. On this you sledge via "Scheene Bodu" and Gopplerlücke down to the Moosfluh valley station on Riederalp. A constant companion on the rapid toboggan run: a dream view of the Valaisan mountains.
