In the Wildschönau there's no need to miss out on skiing to try out tobogganing. The lifts on Roggenboden in Oberau run on Wednesday and Thursday nights by floodlight (groups any day). A special hook on the lift drags you up the slope on your specially lightweight toboggan to save your legs! The run is a kilometre long and is serviced by snow cannons making it snow secure all winter.
Every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 8pm from the Schatzberg lift in Auffach. Take the Bummelzug to the mid station. After a fortifying Glühwein you sledge down the 5 km long run back to the village kitted out with a specially lit toboggan.
Toboggans for children, for one or two people or racing toboggans can be hired at any ski hire shop in the area.
An insider tip is the route from the Schatzberg in Auffach to the idyllic hamlet of Thierbach.
Take the gondola to the top of the Schatzberg (with your toboggan) and cross the piste and the Thalerkogel lift to the start. It’s a 5 kilometre ride down the path through the woods to Thierbach where the ski bus take you back to Auffach. Don’t leave it too late to start as the last Bummelbahn leaves Thierbach around 4 pm.
