Betelberg Lenk toboggan paradise

Off to sledding fun

As an alternative to skiing, as an activity in poor weather or simply as a family excursion, the three toboggan runs on Betelberg Hill are ideal. Away from the ski piste, the three-kilometre-long toboggan run on Lenk’s Betelberg Hill leads from Leiterli mountain station to Stoss middle station. The run is ideal for young and older children alike. Lightning-fast fun in the snow from the hilltop to the valley can be experienced on the approximately six-kilometre-long toboggan run from Leiterli to Pöschenried at 1,200 metres above sea level. Return transport is available from there to the Betelberg valley station. A separate piste at the Mauren ski lift exclusively for bob-sleighs, toboggans and fat bikes is a guarantee of fun, variety and action. 

From the ‘Lenk, Talstation Betelberg’ bus stop, you can ride in comfort on the Betelberg gondola lift up to the Leiterli mountain station.

Toboggan runs

Leiterli-Stoss toboggan run

Open daily from 09.00 hours, the 3-km toboggan run is situated away from the ski piste and leads from the Leiterli mountain station down to the Stoss middle station. The toboggan run follows a similar path to that of the piste and the winter hiking trail. The three routes join just before the middle station. There is a slightly steeper section; otherwise the run is gentle.

This toboggan run is also suitable for small children. However, this doesn’t mean that big kids won’t enjoy it! We also recommend first tobogganing on the Leiterli – Stoss route and then tackling the Leiterli – Pöschenried section after a “warm-up”.

Leiterli-Pöschenried toboggan run

Shortly after Leiterli, the toboggan run runs off to the right and follows the same path as the scooter-bike route in summer. The trail winds its way down to Pöschenried. Once in Pöschenried, you have a choice: you can either walk along the road to the village or catch the toboggan bus.

The Leiterli-Pöschenried toboggan run is open daily from 11.00 hours between 23 December 2023 and 10 March 2024. The run is subject to closures, depending on the snow conditions. The toboggan bus does not operate when the toboggan run is closed.

Bus transport from Pöschenried back to the valley station of the Betelberg gondola lift: every 45 minutes from 11.45 hours. Last departure from Pöschenried, Hubelmatte at 17.00 hours.

Mauren fun course
