The slopes of the tobogganing park


Ten slopes are available on the slide park for a duration of one hour and 50 minutes. The descents are made with a buoy and a covered carpet is used to get back up to the start of the slopes. Some tracks allow several buoys to be used simultaneously, up to a maximum of four. The official website indicates a maximum length of 2800 meters tracks for speeds up to 60 km/h.

The low or no snow cover is not a problem for the park with artificial snow production. However, low snowfall can cause the closure of several runways such as numbers 3 and 8.

The “Looping” and “Big Air Bag” tracks are the most impressive but require an additional trip price. (See price below). The attraction of “Looping” is the most impressive with a strong acceleration felt.
