Description

The toboggan run begins at over 2000 m a.s.l., to the west of the Prümaran Prui mountain restaurant. Almost a must: take a few moments before setting off to enjoy the view of the Lower Engadine. At the outset the piste is shared by tobogganers, winter hikers and air boarders, before reaching the actual start of the toboggan run.Starting out towards the south-east the first part of the toboggan run is fairly straight, but once it reaches the God S-chür forest there are lots of small bends that require a certain amount of technical skill. A bit more than a kilometre further on there is a sharp right-hand bend. On turning the corner riders are rewarded with a delightful view of Ftan Pitschen, a typical Engadine village. The last stretch down to the bottom station of the Ftan-Prui chairlift runs through open territory and is ideal for a fast descent. Overall around 2 km of this 3 km trail go through the forest.It’s worth having a look around Ftan, the village at the end of the run. Across the valley from this sun-kissed plateau Tarasp Castle stands in the foreground, embedded in the picturesque landscape of the majestic Lower Engadine Dolomites that rise in the background. Also fascinating is Ftan’s 400-year-old Alpine Mill, which gives an insight into the rich corn economy of bygone days.

Geheimtipp

800 Meter nach der steilen Rechtskurve bei Pravadlèr kommt man bei P. 1759 aus dem Wald und hat eine herrliche Aussicht über die Fraktion Ftan Pitschen, ein charakteristisches Engadiner Dorf.  Vor oder nach der Schlittenfahrt lohnt es sich, sich im Bergrestaurant Prümaran Prui oder im Restaurant La Cana mit einem heissen Getränk aufzuwärmen und die tolle Aussicht über das Unterengadin zu geniessen.
