VIDEO – Sledding In Switzerland

Hey everyone, hope you all had a great week!

This week is our last week in Scuol, so we have been very busy making the most of the winter sports which they offer around this part of Switzerland.

Yesterday we went skiing in St. Moritz (a blog about that coming soon!), and a few days ago we went sledding down a 6km long sled run – about 2hrs train from here in a cute town called Bergün.

I uploaded a preview video a few days ago, but today you can watch the FULL 3.5min video of us zoooming down the hill as fast as we can! WOW it was so much fun, if your ever in Switzerland in Winter make sure you go to Bergün!

Watch The Video Below: (you might notice the serious look on my face – it was due to the fact that I was holding the video camera in one hand and trying to control the sled with the other while bumping up and down the ice track @ 50km/hr :p Also that is Sofia chasing me behind… and make sure you watch right to the end to find out what happens to my sled :S)

Fun eh?

Tomorrow we are leaving for a 6 day train adventure around Switzerland, France and Italy before flying to Sweden – so look forward to reading and seeing heaps of great pics and info from those places…

    I have never tried sledding and to be honest I don't think I will! But after watching the video, I got more curious about it. Either I will try it some time or would just be contented watching your video!
