To reach the start of the sledding trail, take the chair lift at Fatschél and relish the relaxed ascent to the mountain restaurant Triemel. As of this point a walk of half an hour leads to the Ski House Hochwang. It is recommended to enjoy a hot drink before starting your downhill sledding race.

Author’s recommendation

Before you start, drink a hot Ovo at the Skihaus Hochwang to warm your fingers.
