Tobogganing

Cradle of the sledging

Davos Klosters is the cradle of international tobogganing. In 1883 the first official toboggan race was held in Davos. And the famous "Davos sledge" is effectively the original amongst toboggans. Today, at least 8 sledge runs promise fun and variety in Davos Klosters

Sledging at the Rinerhorn

At the sledge runs of Rinerhorn, children and adults alike can participate in the sledding adventure, navigating the 33 bends and a unique configuration of the steep turns. You are a comfortable twosome perched on one sled or you want to experience the fast pace of a zipfel bobsled. Even passionate bobsleigh riders can use the slide during the early morning hours for practice sessions. The track is 3.5 km long and located directly under a cable car. When the day suddenly seems short: You can take advantage of the extended hours for sledging on Wednesday and Friday from 7pm to 11pm. Rates

Madrisa toboggan run

Madrisa offers toboggan fun for all the family. The toboggan run stretches from the Saaseralp, the mountain station for the Madrisa cable car, down a 8.5 km course into Saas . The return trip to Klosters village takes place with the bus from Saas village square. It is possible to hire toboggans at the mountain station. These are returned to the sports shops Dörfji-Sport or Albeina Sport in Klosters Dorf. Rates

Airboard

Airboard is the inflatable high-tech body-board for the snow. Controlled by shifting the weight, it gives the rider a sense of flying clean over the snow. Braking takes place by positioning the air cushion laterally. The Airboard, a 100% Swiss development, can be ridden on all toboggan runs on the Davos Klosters mountains. Due to the large bearing surface it is possible to descend on prepared pistes and in virgin and deep snow with ease. However, please note that riding Airboards or other similar sledges on winter sports pistes that are not specially signed for this purpose is prohibited.
