It’s Time to Snooc

A new activity is being added to the long list of possibilities at Zermatt in Switzerland this winter.

The Snooc is the latest generation of toboggan, where you sit on a platform above one big ski and from 19th December 2019, for the first time, it will be possible to toboggan down the Alps’ highest toboggan run – from Rotenboden to Riffelberg above Zermatt – on one.

“The Snooc has a lightweight construction and is easy to use,” a Zermatt spokesperson promises, adding, “The ski on the snow ensures a good grip and the seat guarantees a comfortable position.”

To have a go, potential ‘Snooc-ers’ should take the Gornergrat railway from central Zermatt to Rotenboden, where they can hire a Snooc at the station and then start off back down the mile long run.
