Drawing of the course
A 3-seater chairlift links Les Rousses car park at 1770 m to the Bâte mountain. You have to exit at the intermediate stop at 2250 m.
All along the sled run as well as during the chairlift ascent, a magnificent panorama is offered to the sledder.
The sledges are hooked and unhooked on the chairlifts by the staff.
The Anzère toboggan run starts at the intermediate station of the Les Rousses chairlift. You will have to be careful to get off the chairlift quickly at this point.
It is almost never necessary to pull your toboggan along the whole run, half of which is on snow-covered roads and the other half on paths reserved for sledders.
The Anzère sled run is the one with the steepest average slope (16%) and therefore offers excellent sliding without being dangerous. However, you should still be careful on sharp bends.
The arrival at the refreshment bar of Les Rousses next to the departure of the chairlift. It is possible to grill your own meat bought on the spot.
