The start on 1,520 metres at the mountain station Furt is reachable in less than five minutes with the cable car from Wangs. The sledging track leads over Alpine meadows and through snowy forests and is daily prepared. It repeatedly offers a great view into the broad Rhine Valley, to the flank of Gonzen, which arises in the front of Churfirsten, and to the Vorarlberg Alps.

At the middle station Maienberg there is the opportunity to take a break and restore your strength in the two restaurants. In good snow conditions the track leads down into the valley and is then with in total seven kilometres length one of the longest sledging tracks in Eastern Switzerland.

The lower part is sophisticated and only recommendable for advanced sledge riders. Those who want to skip this part can go by cable car from the middle station Maienberg.
