The upper part is characterized by forest passages and demanding bends. But sledgers can also look forward to a few straight sections where they can really pick up speed. At one point, the run even passes through a tunnel for a few metres.
In the lower part, starting at Tigignas, one descends rapidly through the open landscape and enjoys the view of Savognin.
