Toboggan

THE LONGEST TOBOGGAN RUN IN EUROPE! LE TOBOGGAN

Get ready for an incredible experience on a marked-out run in the heart of a magnificent natural valley.
All the thrills of a toboggan run for everyone from 5 years old.
After an 8 minutes ascent using the Péclet Funitel, you arrive at the departure set at the foot of the magnificent Péclet glacier, at an altitude of 3,000 m. Then it’s off for 45 minutes of excitement and sliding entertainment!

The itinerary is great fun, linking raised bends and varied slopes giving tobogganists intense pleasure.
Nothing to fear, just let yourself go and enjoy, right at the heart of an exceptional site.

Price for the day, with a sledge and helmet: 14 € for a descent (21 € for people without skipass)

LOOKING FOR EVEN MORE EXCITEMENT? HOW ABOUT AN EVENING RUN!

A great way to finish the day.
Even more unusual, even more laughter, even more fun.
And after all these emotions, the SETAM offers you mulled wine & local mountain Beaufort cheese at the Chalet du TOBOGGAN.
Every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evening, we invite you to reserve your tobogganing evening.

Price: 21,50 €

For the little ones (over two years old)

Whether you’re on your own, with family or friends, whatever your age or ability, you’ll find a run for you.

• For the over 2’s, a free, safe and secure “Baby Fun” tobogganing area in the Place Caron at the middle of the resort awaits them.
