Sledging with Children - The Best Swiss Slopes for Sledding
Updated: Apr 2, 2019
Great for toddlers!
The carrousel with inflatable tubes at the Funpark in Les Diablerets is easily accessible from the car park at the bottom of the ski slopes, and right next to the téléluge where older siblings can have fun sledging ❄️ ⛄️ Carrousel: 2CHF per child for 5 minutes Téléluge: 8CHF per child for 1 hour if you bring your own sledge or 10CHF if you need to rent one. There is also a free sledging run next to it, but with no sledge lift so you need to walk it! Les Diablerets is about 120km from Geneva (90 minutes drive), a fantastic day-out with the little ones!

Engelberg-Titlis, on Friday and Saturday evenings at the appropriate snow conditions from Christmas to the beginning of March pure nightly pleasure. Track length: Beautiful three and a half kilometres with an average height difference of 250 meters.
In Grindelwald find runner fans on the Busalp. An eight kilometre long trail leads down to Grindelwald. Practical offer: With the Moonliner bus you can safely reach Interlaken after the snow fun and have connections to Bern and Thun.
Davos-Klosters anyone can take a night sled on two slopes. The trains offer late transfers on different days of the week. On the 2.8 kilometers, curvy but beginner-suitable Schatzalp and on the 3.5 kilometers longer Rineralp.
The Preda-Berggrün toboggan run is the longest illuminated track for night sledging in the whole of Europe. Night sledging is also always available from around Christmas until well into March and, except on Mondays, every day of the week.
In central and southwestern Switzerland
A height difference of 800 meters over a length of a full 8 kilometres. As one of the longest toboggan runs in the region, the Melchsee-Frutt can get a little bit more crowded and those who do not have their own sledges are advised to reserve their sports equipment for the popular night sledging.
The sled runs Les Diablerets is a unique night sledging track in southwestern Switzerland. Here it is over seven kilometres and more than 500 vertical meters rapidly down the mountain. No longer an insider tip: a ride at full moon through the beautiful forest landscape, which is crowned by fondue fun with friends or family.
Speaking of sledging, if you are looking for special adventure: try out dog sledding through nature. Just on our doorstep in St Cergue (25 minutes from Geneva), you will find group or individual Dog Sledding tours. You can book directly online here --> http://www.teamnature.ch/
We always like to test out the activities before we recommend them to our Good-People community. So here we are, in Nendaz, on the famous Nendaz sled run. We rented our sleds at the ski-lifts and off we went. In this photo, I am sitting with my son wiping snowflakes off his entire face (tip: wear goggles), while my nanny, Ellie, is on the other sled with my daughter. Both screaming in delight!
