Fiescheralp – Lax sledge run

Fiescheralp – Lax sledge run
Fiescheralp – Lax sledge run

A cool sledging adventure from Fiescheralp along a well-prepared 13 km run down to Lax. From the cable car top station up at 2222 m, it is just a 5-minute walk to the start of the amazing Fiescheralp – Lax sledge run.
The run starts with views of the magnificent mountain panorama – including the Matterhorn. This fast but safe section is followed by a romantic run through snow-covered woods that ends just above Lax.
The Sportbus bus will then take you from Lax back to Fiesch.

And if you don't have your own sledge, that's not a problem. The local sports shops have a sledge hire service.

Note: The daily updated opening information can be found in the winter sports report.

Tip: For safety reasons, we recommend that you always wear a ski helmet when sledging. A head torch or torch is also required for night sledging.
