Sledging is a tradition in South Tyrol and is still very popular with young and old. The sledging trail, roughly 3 km long, in Lazaun in front of the Schnalstal Glacier guarantees plenty of fun. It is located on the right side of the Val Senales/Schnalstal valley and runs from the mountain hut Lazaunhütte past the hotels of Maso Corto/Kurzras. A difference in altitude of 430 m must be overcome. The easiest way to ascend is by the cable car. And no genuine sledging party is complete without calling in at the rustic Lazaunhütte.
