Before starting the toboggan run, enjoy a wonderful walk from the bus stop Tarasp, Fontana on the left side of the Lai da Tarasp (with the art work "The Moon" by Not Vital). On the left you will see the impressive Tarasp Castle with its 1000 years of history. After a somewhat steeper section up to the transmitter mast, take several looks back to admire the hamlet of Fontana and Sparsels. After the transmitter mast, turn left into the toboggan run. Sometimes a bit steeper, sometimes a bit flatter. After the stretch across the open meadow with views of Scuol and Sent, a small stream appears on the right side of the path and accompanies you for a while on your way down to Vulpera. The trail continues past a farm with llamas, where the sledge run branches off from the hiking trail and you sledge down to Vulpera on the last part. Once in Vulpera you can either take the bus or walk through Vulpera (right) via Gurlaina back to Scuol.


Before you start, go to Munt da la Crusch vis-à-vis the transmitter mast and enjoy the wonderful views.

Stop in Chants and go to the Hoflädeli (small farmers’ shop) and buy some Salsiz.


The trail is groomed after each snowfall. Please note the condition reports in the winter sports report (please click). The tour was assessed in favourable weather conditions, current snow and weather conditions must be noted before starting.
