The run is very gliding and follows snow-covered roads open to skiers. All along the descent there is an open view of the Val d’Anniviers. Only one or two very short sections require you to pull your sled.

The large part of the sled run (here direction South) is above the forest and therefore enjoys a good amount of sunshine.

The toboggan run crosses 3 times a large and particularly steep ski slope. Beware of this crossing, especially the third one, which can be dangerous if the sledder slides down the ski slope.
