Sledging in Ötztal
A local all-time favourite to discover
There is more to winter than just skiing. Sledging has always been a popular sport in Ötztal. The Luge World Cup is held in Ötztal frequently. The most modern luge track in all of Tyrol, the Grantau track in Umhausen, is also accessible to amateurs.
Experience winter from its romantic side on one of the well-groomed sledging tracks near Oetz. The villages of Ochsengarten, Kühtai, Sautens, Niederthai, Umhausen, Längenfeld, Gries, Sölden, Vent and Obergurgl-Hochgurgl all have their own track.
The one closest to our hotel is the 0.8-mile run in Oetz-Piburg, which is floodlit every night. If you prefer a more challenging run, you should opt for the 1.4-mile track from Ochsengarten to the Feldringalm Mountain Inn.
