Safety Rules

Tobagganing, much like skiing, can be a risky sport. Accidents can happen even when all the security instructions are followed. In order to reduce the risk of accidents as much as possible it is imperative that all snow tube riders carefully read all security instructions and warnings posted in the park. These instructions, as well as those given by the park staff, must be followed exactly as stated. Snow tube riders are reminded that the use of this park is entirely at their own risk and that the Télé Leysin – Col des Mosses – La Lécherette SA assumes no responsibility in case of accident.

Conditions
• Children under 5 years of age may not use the park, with the exception of the runs in the “ Mini Park ”, which are reserved exclusively for them.
• Children must be at least 140 cm tall in order to use the runs 6 and 7 that start in the tower.
• Tobogganing is not recommended for pregnant women, nor is it recommended for those who suffer from heart problems, or who have back or neck problems.
• People who have other health-related issues must determine for themselves if their health issues will pose a problem while engaging in this type of activity.
