Wintertime is sledging time. Including short runs and pleasant routes for harmless glissades, the six sledge runs around Pontresina pack quite a punch. The most famous of them leads from Muottas Muragl and counts an impressive 20 curves and 4.2 km to the valley below. Sleds can be rented directly at the Valley Station. Sledgers access the departure point in comfort aboard the funicular Muottas Muragl. The run is open daily from December to March from 9:30 to 16:00, depending on snow and visibility conditions. It is not suitable for toddlers.

A short distance away: Preda-Bergün
The most famous sledge run in Switzerland is so close: A short 20-minute train ride takes Pontresina guests to the sledge run from Preda to Bergün. The 6-km-long route leads along the Albula railway line, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008. Preda sledges are available for rent at the train station and can be returned in Bergün.
