Triumphantly the sledgers arrive in Medalges, having conquered nearly 800 metres of ascent, and look forward even more to the almost 7-km-long, yet family-friendly descent down to Pares near Lungiarü. The goal is reached more quickly on Antermoia sledge run. Sledges glide over the fast, but easy piste back to their starting point at Fornela. Information about current opening hours of the many refreshment stops and sledge hire may be found at local tourist offices.
You can also walk up the hill before making your descent at San Vigilio, on 'Munt da Rina‘ sledge run at the sports ground in Welschellen, for example, or you can take the Cianross gondola lift up to the top of the sledge run bearing the same name so that you can make several trips down the 680-metre-long piste. All manner of sledges may be hired, and on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays there is night sledging from 8.00 pm to 10.00 pm.
Yes, moonlight sledging has something of the adventurous about it. Going down the particularly spectacular sledge runs from Fanes or Sennes pastures to Pederü is also (or especially) a great experience at nighttime. Fanes and Sennes mountain inns put on a snow cat service to bring sledgers up and serve delicious dishes for some nocturnal reinforcement, which will definitely be needed on the way down.
