Tobogganing fun on the Niederhorn

Racing three kilometres down the mountain

After you arrive at the Vorsass middle station, you can get back on the cable car towards the Niederhorn – and that’s when the fun begins again. The snowy winter landscape makes for a magical experience, and the mountain scenery is simply breathtaking. Experienced tobogganists will definitely get their money’s worth here. The moderately difficult toboggan run can also be used by beginners without any problems.
