Drawing of the course
A telecabin connects the village of Grimentz to Bendolla at an altitude of 2130 metres where the sled run starts. The sledges are taken with you in the telecabin
The Moiry dam can be seen from inside the Bendolla cable car.
The magnificent panorama on the eastern slope of the Val d’Anniviers is not to be missed, as well as the view of the Weisshorn (4506 m) and the Dent Blanche (4357 m).
To get to the start of the sled run, turn right out of the telecabin and pull your sled for about 200 metres.
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 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.
The track does not end at the start of the telecabin. You still have to walk between 300 and 500 downhill to reach the start.
