Equipment and clothes for tobogganing
Almost anything you would wear for skiing is also recommendable for tobogganing: Warm clothes, ski suit, shoes with anti slip soles, ski goggles, gloves as well as a helmet. In the evening, you should also carry a torch or a headlamp with you.
The tobogganing runs should only be used with special wooden sport toboggans. If you have no own toboggan or sledge you can borrow one at the huts next to the toboggan runs in Tuxertal. The best is tobogganing with skids folded inwards, the belt helps to steer. Do not use bobs made of plastic on the runs – these are too difficult to control.
A tobogganing experience in Zillertal is the perfect winter fun for the whole family, for two or as a group. Plan an evening or half-day for tobogganing.
