Winter sledding at Vercorin
The Vercorin winter sledding run connects the area known as La Sigeroulaz by taking the Crêt du Midi telecabin to the Vercorin ski resort. Even if the track allows you to enjoy a nice view of the Alps, unfortunately you have to pull your sled a lot on the course and especially to get back to the start by carrying your sled over a long distance.

Paid parking at the departure of the cable car.
To get to the top of the sledge run, you have to take the Crêt du Midi telecabin with its sledge and exit at the intermediate stop of Sigeroulaz.
From the exit of the telecabin, you have to cross the ski slope and follow the path that goes above the Sigeroulaz cowshed.
From the Sigeroulaz and partly on the toboggan run, you can enjoy a magnificent 180-degree view of the northern side of the Rhone Valley and the eastern side of the Val d’Anniviers.
The descent starts after about 500 meters of walking where you have to pull your sled. The track follows a path with a good glide but is interrupted by a long section of several hundred metres where you still have to pull your sled.
Descent back to the station
Unfortunately, the track ends very far from the telecabin departure, almost 2 kilometers away! It seems that free buses are running to bring back the tobogganers but la Torpille did not see any information about this and had to walk back to the start carrying their sled. This return is much too long and that’s why la Torpille doesn’t recommend this toboggan run.
The track layout
The prices for the telecabin ride up to the intermediate stop are as follows:
- Adult: 9 francs
- Child: 5 francs
The cash desk is located at the departure of the telecabin and it is possible to rent sledges at Virage Sport next to the departure of the telecabin.
