The Toboggan run (6 km) starting from the upper terminus of the new funicular railway Resciesa in Ortisei offers a great experience for the whole family. As there is an intermediate terminus, it is possible to enjoy the first part of the run several times in row. All those who don't have a sledge can rent one at the lower terminus of the funicular railway.
