Why toboggan only in winter? Large and branched summer toboggan runs invite you to do this in summer as well. Besides, you can enjoy the beautiful landscape in peace.

Bosco Gurin toboggan run
The famous sledding resort Bosco Gurin opened in July 2021 also a toboggan run. The run begins in Rossboda and stretches for a kilometer all the way to Capanna. The toboggan lift type rests on a single track. This allows for an unusual slope in the curve. The summer toboggan run is suitable for adults and children and is open daily (except Mondays). The track is also in operation in winter.
