Winter sledding at Nendaz
The Nendaz winter sled run is located in Siviez and offers a nice track dedicated to sledders. Despite its only 3 kilometres, it is one of the best runs in Western Switzerland and an excellent alternative to the very challenging Tzoumaz run. It is suitable for children aged 4 and over.

Drawing of the course
The departure of the chairlift is located at the Siviez ski lifts starting plateform. You have to choose the Tortin chairlift and don’t forget to get out at the intermediate stop. At the departure, an employee fixes one sledge per chairlift.
The Nendaz sled run is one of the shortest in Western Switzerland but has the advantage, like the Tzoumaz run, of having a route separate from the skiers and off the snow-covered roads.
The toboggan run is only about 3 metres wide, allowing excellent gliding without having to push. At the halfway point, there is a short, very steep descent with tight bends that is not indicated by signposts.
