Winter sledding at Jaun


The winter sled run at Jaun is located in the Gruyère district. Jaun is the only German-speaking municipality in this district and is called Bellegarde in French.

The sled run has a good glide and is well prepared but has the big disadvantage of having two relatively long sections where you have to pull your sled. In addition, it is necessary to add the distance that it is necessary to walk to reach the departure point of the chairlift from the end of the track. The total distance to walk is 2 km.

The chairlift


The Gastlosen-Express 4-seater chairlift is the main lift of the Jaun ski resort, which has 25 km of ski slopes for a total of 4 lifts. It is used to access the top of the sled run. The sleds are fixed by an employee of the ski resort to a hook on each seat.

In freezing weather, care should be taken to avoid two hairpins shortly after the first slip zone.

The way back to the chairlift


The way back to the chairlift is quite long since you have to walk 820 metres between the end of the track and the start of the Gastlosen Express chairlift. In cold and snowy weather, it is possible to slide on the road and glide over half of the 820 metres.
