Sledding - Tobogganing in South Tyrol and Tyrol

Sledding has a long tradition in the Alpine countries. In the past, the sled was an important tool for farmers, to enable the transport of hay or wood through the snow-covered valleys even in winter. Today, there are long since other, mostly more effective means of transport, but as a sports and leisure device, the sled continues to enjoy great popularity.
