Sledging has a long tradition in South Tyrol. Perhaps this is because it is a highly gregarious activity that can be shared with the entire family. It can readily also be paired with a good glass of wine or a game of cards in the warmth of a mountain hut or shelter.
Perfectly kept slopes, fresh snow and ski runs which are also suitable for children in and around Prato allo Stelvio, await all sports-minded families.
The natural, four-kilometer long toboggan run in the Watles ski area
is among the most attractive in all South Tyrol. The two-kilometer track in Solda
is illuminated in the evenings three times a week. While the pros
prefer to use the natural ice track at Gafair in Lasa
, where numerous races are held, the track up the Val di Gafair is more often used by non-professionals, perhaps for an enjoyable sled ride, starting at the source of the sulfurous spring commonly known as Stinkabrunn
