Safe tobogganing though Ahrntal/Valle Aurina in South Tyrol

Some advices for a safe tobogganing on the runs

Straight driveCentral sitting position, both hands hold the rope. Adjust the direction by pulling the steering rope on the interior runner side and by making pressure with the leg on the exterior side.

CurvingPull the rope on the interior runner. One leg makes pressure on the exterior runner, the inner leg remains in the air. Shift the weight to the inner side.

BrakingBrake with both feet and with the whole soles on the snow. Lifting the sledge horns helps braking more quickly.
