The new approx. 2.3 kilometers long natural toboggan run at the Hochschwarzeck skiing resort in Ramsau near Berchtesgaden is operation since winter 2011/12 and a complete success!
The action begins at 1390m directly at the mountain station of the Hirscheck chair lift and leads rapidly downhill a 400 meters eventful and curvy track. The finish is in the immediate vicinity of the Hirscheck chair lift at 1000m altitude.
The track is regularly groomed with a snowcat.
Usage of the toboggan run is free, so that even those tobogganers who do not use the chair lift and ascend on foot a magnificent specially designated winter path, do not have to give up a following tobogganing experience. The fact that the toboggan run is intended exclusively for tobogganers and that no ski mountaineers, pedestrians or skiers are on the road, makes the toboggan run a great treat for beginners, families with children, school classes and groups.
There is a toboggan rental with over 150 toboggans at both valley and mountain station for guests who do not own a toboggan. Depositing a valid ID card is required when renting a toboggan!
Luge legend Georg Hackl was involved in the development of the route profile and has contributed significantly with his years of experience. Thus, the toboggan run offers nature, fun, adventure and sports activities in a free environment.
