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.

Sled run


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.

In winter, the Nendaz toboggan run is quickly in the shade from the middle of the afternoon.
