 The ski hut - Sonnalm with a great sun terrace, winter garden and views of the Salzburg mountain region is the very worthwhile goal of the toboggan run in Zauchensee. The quaint ski hut was built in 2010 and is located right on the ski slope - Tauernkar. The 3.3 km long toboggan run starts at the hut - Sonnalm and ends in the valley just before the lake Zauchensee. The popular sledding experience is very romantic in the evening or on full moon nights with a headlamp. When groups register under the number +43 (0) 6452/5656 is the ski lodge open in the evening and if you do not want go up, you can order a bobsleigh taxi. Sledges and headlamps you can borrow at the hut - Sonnalm.

To Zauchensee we drive first through Altenmarkt and then on the road L252 10 km to Zauchensee. We park our car at the first parking lot on the left at the beginning of the lake Zauchensee. Then we go 100m back along the road and then right up along a few apartment buildings. At an altitude of 1.347m starts the 3.3 km long toboggan run. We go up about an hour through the snowy pine forest to the ski hut - Sonnalm 1.752m. The beautifully groomed toboggan run has 14 turns and a very smooth gradient of 12%. Even when going up and especially at the Sonnalm you have a wonderful view of the snow-covered mountains in Zauchensee.

Safety Tips:

  • Who's going sledding in the afternoon has to take on any case, head lamps, since it gets dark early in winter. So you can stay longer and enjoy the comfortable rest on the hut.
  • Take T-shirt, sweater and cap for changing. So you do not get sick.
  • Do sledding always in control. In Front of little children should be sleigh at a greater distance an adult.
  • With good hiking shoes you can brake and steer on slippery toboggan runs.
  • Children they may toboggan alone, should put on a ski helmet and ski goggles in any case.
  • On the ascent go on the right side, so you avoid collisions with downhill toboggan, sled driver and ski tour walker.
