Tobogganing

3 KM OF SERIOUS SLEDGING FUN IN THE SNOW-CAPPED FOREST

Grab your family or friends, whiz through the woods on your sled, breathe in crystal-clear air and enjoy the adrenaline rush: Tobogganing is guaranteed top-level fun for kids and grown-ups alike.

The toboggan run starts at the Merano 2000 mountain station and winds through the snow-covered forest all the way down to Falzeben. Want another go? Simply hop on the Falzeben gondola lift, which will take you right back up to where you started.

A real must on any sledding adventure: a stop-off for a hot chocolate in a cosy mountain hut. The mountain hut Zuegg, for example, is located directly next to the toboggan run – and there are plenty more inviting places to warm up in near the start and end of the track.

Rules on the toboggan run

The international FIS rules are valid also for toboggan runs:
  • Tobogganing is only allowed on the official toboggan run (start next to the mountain station of the Ropeway)
  • Right equipment - see above
  • Respect for other tobogganists
  • Control your speed of travel taking account of the terrain, snow, weather and traffic conditions. Keep a safety distance of at least 8 meters
  • Follow the signs and pay attention to intersections with the slopes and walking paths
  • Overtaking only with good visibility, enough distance and reduced speed permitted. In case of collision the tailgating tobogganist is liable for all consequences
  • Avoid stopping at blind corners
  • Injury: in case of an injury vacate the spot as soonas practicable. You are obliged by law to offer help and assistance to the injured
  • It is forbidden to sled on ski slopes
  • Ascending: use the walking trail to return to the top

112 - Provide first aid

In the unlikely event of an accident or if in need of assistance contact the ski patrol and emergency services by calling 112.
Anyone witnessing an accident is obliged to provide first aid:

  • Secure the accident site: Place your skies into the snow forming a cross about five to ten meters above the accident scene. In case the injured person lies below a hill, place your skies on the top of the hill so that other skiers are alerted in time, can quickly identify the accident site and avoid the interested part of the slope.
  • Clear the slope: After securing the accident site it might still be advisable to remove the injured person from the slope to the edge of the slope in order to prevent further collisions. However, if the accident victim shows clear signs of head, neck or back injuries, he or she must not be moved under any circumstance.
  • Alert the ski patrol service: While on the slopes you should generally always have a mobile phone on you. Contact the emergency services to give indications about the location of the accident and to provide information on the victim as well as his or her injuries. EMERGENCY NUMBER 112
  • Provide first aid: If you are the only person at the scene of the accident, securing the site has higher priority. However, if there are multiple persons at the site securing the site and alerting the emergency services can be done while someone is providing first aid to the injured person.
    First of all check the vital signs. Should the accident victim not breathe, be unconscious or suffer a cardiac arrest immediately start performing resuscitation measures - cardiac massage and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Every minute counts. If the injured person is unconscious but shows stable vital signs, turn them to the side into a stable lateral position and wait until rescue arrives.
  • Do not move: If the victim is addressable and has pain in the back, the neck or the head do not move him or her under any circumstance due to a potential spinal cord-injury. Check if the victim can move their fingers and toes and feel their hands and feet. If so you can exclude the possibility of a vertebral fracture and move the injured person to the edge of the slope.
  • Keep from cooling down: In case of extremely cold temperatures and extended contact with snow the accident victim might suffer frostbites. You can spot them as the skin whitens and becomes insensitive to pain. You should therefore ensure that the injured person does not cool down and is kept warm at any time.
