Tobogganing & Air-boarding

Recommend this page

There's nothing quite like letting the toboggan whizz you downhill and feeling the powdery snow flying into your face – tobogganing enthusiasts have eight different toboggan runs of varying degrees of difficulty to choose from in the holiday region of Gstaad. The runs range from the family run in Sparenmoos to floodlit tobogganing under a full moon on the Wispile. And those seeking thrills can climb onto an "air-board" for nail-biting fun and speed.
