Toboggan Fun for everyone
With more than 12 km of toboggan runs, the Plose is the right place for all those you love sledding. Tobogganing in a snowy winter landscape is a healthy and sporty nature experience, which assures fun for everyone.
Whether you love to walk for a while and have a nice meal in one of the inviting huts on the Plose before sledding gently back or you prefer to jump right into the tobogganing fun: on the Plose you will find what you are looking for.
You can choose between the toboggan slope RudiRun, 9 km, and the toboggan run from Rossalm back to the gondola lift Plose which is well suited for families or the one to Skihütte/Rifugio Sci, the latter are both a combination between tobogganing and hiking.

RudiRun – with 9 km one of the longest toboggan runs in South Tyrol
This 9 km long toboggan run is the ultimate pleasure for the whole family. Idyllic, varied and always good for a surprise. The fun is guaranteed already by the fact that the run never ends.
The toboggan run begins at the top station of the gondola lift Plose and on the first kilomters the run is technically easy and offers fun for all the family. The lower section is ideal for fans of toboggan sports, as there are long straight stretches. The toboggan run ends 1000 metres below its start, at the bottom station of the gondola lift.
The length of the whole track alone is remarkable, and a challenge for every slider. Depending on the snow conditions, there may be fast stretches and technically challenging sections.
Hiking and Tobogganing to the Rossalm
On the toboggan run Rossalm – Kreuztal families with small children will find all that they expect. A broad, very slightly increasing hiking trail starts at the arrival of the gondola lift Plose in Kreuztal and leads to the Rossalm, which could not be located in a more beautiful place. The trail is 2.5 km long and runs in a sunny area with impressive views of the Dolomites. Hiking time is approximately 1 hour.
After a pleasurable break in the hut you take your way back. After the rather flat part of the way you sit down on your toboggan and enjoy the ride down (approx. 2 km). There is nothing more to stop you from experiencing a fantastic sledding excursion. This toboggan run is well adapted to young and old.
Tobogganing and Hiking to Skihütte
Right at the arrival of the gondola lift Plose, you can start your toboggan – hike. Please take the stairs down from the sun terrace of the Restaurant La Finestra, pass the building and follow the street until you get to the Guesthouse Geisler. Right after it you need to cross the slope and then take the lower path on your right hand side. After approximately 500 m you turn right where the signs indicate “Skihütte / Rifugio Sci”. Follow the path – partly sledding down partly walking until you get to that place (sledding for about 2 km). The path ist groomed regularly and leads to the Hotel Schlemmer, where you can enjoy your rest. Total time for hiking and tobogganing is about 2 hours (3km one way).
Rent the right equipment
Please take care that you use a stable toboggan of good quality, a helmet, good winter clothes and proper winter shoes, ski goggles and gloves. If you need any of this equipment, contact the local ski rental Rent and Go – Service Erwin Stricker. You may find it at the bottom station of the gondola lift Plose. There you get all you need for a day on the toboggan, even children’s back rests for toboggans. Sportservice Erwin Stricker rents out all kind of winter equipment. You can rent a toboggan, helmets and more also at the Infoshop, right next to the top station of the gondola lift Plose.
Unfortunately tobogganing is associated with an increased risk of injury and all people should adapt their style to their abilities. We recommend a helmet also for sledding.
The use of the toboggan runs for all attendees at their own risk !The operator of the toboggan runs does not take any responsibility. Parents are responsible for their own children.
