The classic in the Engadine: the toboggan run from Prui to Ftan runs mainly in the forest and delights with its views of the villages and Tarasp Castle.

The start of the toboggan run is at over 2000 metres, west of the mountain restaurant Prümaran Prui. Almost a must: enjoy the view over the Lower Engadine before the descent. Afterwards, take the shared run for sledders and winter hikers to the entrance to the sledding trail.

The first, south-east facing section of the toboggan run is fairly straight before the run then leads into the «God S-chür» forest, where many smaller bends challenge the technical skills. After a little more than a kilometre, a sharp right-hand bend follows. The manoeuvre is rewarded with a magnificent view over Ftan Pitschen, a typical Engadine village. The last stretch to the valley station of the Ftan-Prui mountain railway is clear and well suited for a quick descent. In total, about two of the three kilometres lead through the forest.

The toboggan run is also a night toboggan run. You can find more information here.
