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.

Drawing of the course
A 4-seater chairlift connects the car park just before the village of Chandolin to Tsapé at an altitude of almost 2500 metres.
From Chandolin, you can enjoy a view of the western side of the Val d’Anniviers and a magnificent panorama of the northern side of the Rhône valley. You can also observe, from certain places, the Matterhorn at the bottom of the Val d’Anniviers.
The sledges are hooked and unhooked on the chairlifts by the lift staff.
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.
The finish of the Chandolin run is in the middle of the village, several hundred metres from the start. You have to wait for a fast shuttle bus which goes in a few minutes to the Tsapé chairlift car park.
