Winter Sledding at Chandolin


The Chandolin sled run is located above Sierre in the Val d’Anniviers. It offers a good glide and a particularly beautiful view of the Alps.

The run is suitable for children from 4 years old but at this age you have to pay attention to the high altitude at 2500 meters and the ascent by chairlift.

Sled run


The Chandolin toboggan run starts next to the finish of the Tsapé chairlift. It is the highest-altitude toboggan run in French-speaking Switzerland and enjoys both good snow cover and excellent sunshine. It is completely out of the forest.

The track is located on a snow-covered road and benefits from a good glide. It is almost never necessary to pull your sled.
