The toboggan run on the Hohe Sattel is a medium-heavy insider tip: snow-sure, steep and spectacular! The crisp ascent leads directly from the car park in Ahrn eastwards through the Satteltal valley, signposted. On a lovingly prepared winter hiking trail you reach the highest point of the tour after about an hour, at 1495 metres above sea level.
The strenuous climb is rewarded by a small sunny plateau with breathtaking views from the Hohe Munde to the Große Ahrnspitze. Instead of the usual refreshment stops, all you will find up here is imposing natural scenery, delicious alpine air and soothing silence. Downhill it goes the same way as uphill: a rapid descent over 2.5 km and 385 metres of altitude difference, with almost 15% gradient, partly icy steep sections and active piste service. Ratraks can also appear during the day, so please be careful and look ahead!
