Winter sledding at Vercorin


The Vercorin winter sledding run connects the area known as La Sigeroulaz by taking the CrΓͺt 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.

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.

Sled run


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.
