“Top!”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Best fun we've had for years. You MUST do that! We did the whole run laughing like we were 10yo (wish I was!), but expect muscle pain the day after.... Who cares!

“Tons of fun- don't miss it!”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Really this was one of the highlights of our stay in VT. We did this in the evening, after a day of skiing, and definitely didn't regret it. You pick up the toboggan at the bottom of the mountain, take the Peclet (I think...) lift to the top and then spend the next hour sliding down with incredible scenery under the stars. At the bottom they great you with hot mulled wine and cheese. An awesome experience. Don't miss it.

“Excellent Thrill ride”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

You would find it hard to beat this ride for a fun and thrilling hour with breathtaking scenery. It costs around 20 euro, you pick up your toboggan at the top of the nursery slope the take to cable car to the top of the mountain. The run can be steep in places and you do have to watch out for others going past you but that's all part of the fun. Be prepared to get wet from the snow and for the odd tumble. Big tip, do the evening run as you do not clash with skiers.

“Highlight of the trip ”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

As a non skier on a family skiing holiday this was the highlight of the trip for me. Really good value at 13,60 Euros with a (borrowed) lift pass for one run down.

We did this as a group of 8 and all thoroughly enjoyed it. Took us about 45mins to complete the route.

Some tips:
- try and lie flat in the toboggan
- use you body weight to steer and keep balance
- the brakes are useless if you are in a rut / gutter!
- make sure you fully zip up your coat and trousers to ensure the snow doesn't get in :)

I was fortunate enough to be the only one of the 8 that didn't fall out on our run down but think that was more luck than technique!
