Schlittelweg Pizol

Sledging fun and great views are guaranteed: on the sledging run at the north slope of Pizol sledging fans overlook the entire St. Gallen Rhine Valley up to Lake Constance.
This sledging track leads over Alpine meadows and through snowy forests and is daily prepared. It repeatedly offers a great view into the broad Rhine Valley, to the flank of Gonzen, which arises in the front of Churfirsten, and to the Vorarlberg Alps.

The start on 1,520 metres at the mountain station Furt is reachable in less than five minutes with the cable car from Wangs. A few curves near the ski slope, then the sledge run disappears into the forest. After turning around a large bend it returns to the slope and crosses under the cable car. It continues along some dispersed chalets to the middle station of Maienberg. The run ends in the winter sport destination of Pizol above Wangs. From there, the sledging fans will enjoy a great view of the valley.

At the middle station Maienberg there is the opportunity to take a break and restore your strength in the two restaurants. In good snow conditions the track leads down into the valley and is then with in total seven kilometres length one of the longest sledging tracks in Eastern Switzerland. The lower part is sophisticated and only recommendable for advanced sledge riders. Those who want to skip this part can go by cable car from the middle station Maienberg.
