The route over the Flüela Pass is currently deserted due to the winter closure. This untouched winter landscape therefore remains hidden from most people. Except on Saturday, 18 February 2023: Sledding fans will have a unique opportunity. Because at the highest point of the pass at 2,383 metres above sea level, the new tobogganing happening “Red Bull Sledgends” will start. The 5.65-kilometre-long toboggan run leads 444 metres downhill to Tschuggen. Past tight curves and steep sections.
A fun race for everyone over the age of 16
You can start alone or in a team of two. Either way, the focus is on fun. In contrast to normal toboggan races, the winner is not the sled that reaches the finish line the fastest. Instead, the aim is to come closest to the average travel time of all participants. This leaves enough time during the race to admire the winter landscape or take a photo. Participation is open to anyone over the age of 16. Helmets are compulsory. A rear tank is optional, but recommended. Only Davos sleds or sleds similar in construction are permitted. Steering bobs, horn sleds as well as butt-sliders are not allowed. Registrations are open now at redbull.com/sledgends. Deadline for registration is Wednesday, 15 February, unless already fully booked.
After Party in an Arctic Polar Station
After the toboggan ride, the fun doesn't end there. From 3 pm there will be an After Party with “DJ Bazooka” and “DJ Byte” at the “Secret Mountain Davos” near the Seehofseeli in Davos. This temporary winter pop-up has the look of an arctic polar station and will remain open for the rest of the winter season. It offers a restaurant, outdoor bars, lounges, food containers and a clubhouse with live music in the evening.
