The descent on the Samnaun toboggan run is something to be earned: on foot it takes you from Samnaun Dorf via Motta Saltuorn to the lookout point above Val Motnaida, before you take the same route downhill by sledge.

Because of its location in the border triangle of Switzerland, Austria and Italy, Samnaun is characterized by its surrounding cultures. Together with Ischgl in Tyrol, Samnaun operates the largest ski arena in the eastern Alpine region in winter. 238 kilometers of slopes invite here to alpine winter sports fun. Sledding enthusiasts also get their full share of fun — although they have to earn it.

The rushing descent on the Samnaun sledge run must first be earned: On foot it goes from Samnaun village through the mixed forest Inner Wald and past the forest hut Motta Saltuorn. Before the descent a stop at the vantage point above the Val Motnaida is worthwhile: the one with a view of Samnaun village, the Piz Ot, Piz Rots and in the direction of Zeblasjoch opens up. The leisurely ascent takes a good hour. The descent with the sledge follows the same path. The route through the forest is not very steep, but nevertheless one can reach a considerable speed. Sledges can be rented in the Samnaun sports shops.


The trail is prepared after each snowfall. Please refer to the condition reports in the winter sports report. The tour was evaluated in favorable weather conditions, current snow and weather conditions must be noted before starting.
