Enjoy your meal and get ready for an exciting ride on your sledge.
The descent is along the former ski run of Mietres area and takes about 15 minutes. A few stretches are rather steep, therefore we recommend to always control the speed.
The descent takes about 15 minutes.
The rental shop offers wooden sledges and plastic snow sledges; top-of-the-line wooden or aluminum sledges are also available for those who like high performance gear.
From our experience, sledges are to be preferred to snow sledges for this ride.
Important: Cortina doesn’t have any runs homologated for sledging. Descents are usually along groomed forest roads prepared by mountain inns’s snowploughs. You may practice this activity at your own risk and Snowservice is not accountable for the use you make of the rented equipment. Check snow conditions before attempting the ride, in case of lack of snow or icy patches we advise against.
