Its exactly as the title states, it was 15 full kilo metres of epicness. There is a bit of work envolved and the price does add up, but this is the worlds longest taboggan run and the ride is worth it, not only are you racing down steep slopes and carving up snow at some crazy speeds dodging other sleders and trying your hardest not to stack (espicially if your very ametuar like myself) but your doing all this through some very beautiful country side surrounded by breathtaking views. This is not for the Fient hearted, at the start the slopes are pretty steep with alot of jumps and your flying into some pretty tight corners, but its exhilirating and alot of fun, that sad part is you only have enough time and maybe energy to do this once a day, if you were staying in Grindelwald and have a ski pass there are other tracks you can do aswell but for us it was just a day trip from Interlaken. First off if your starting in Interlaken you need to catch the train or bus to Grindelwald where you rent the Taboggans and whatever other gear you need, then its a Gondala to the Ski resort called First, then comes the 2.5 hour walk up to the top of Faulhorn, there are a few downhill parts where you can get a little practice on the taboggan which helped alot. The track is well marked and easy to find, there were alot more people doing it than we had expected, the track starts off easy but slowly gets steeper and steeper. We didnt rush it we just enjoyed the scenery as we went. Once you get close to the top theres a start sign or you can walk up even further but its alot steeper. For all the effort and cost it was worth, you can even stop half way down for a few cold drinks or warm ones and some food. There was alot of snow while we were there so we were able to sledge down to about a 100metre walk away from Grindelwald where we returned our taboggans and caught the train back. You deffinatly need to take the same gear you would hiking/skiing and some good footwear to dig in to help turn, alot of water and food. Very much worth the effort not only for the fun but also for the scenery.
