Bear Mountain
Luge Experience

Natural Luge Sledding is popular in Europe, but why should they have all of the fun? Natural Luge Sledding provides another recreational option at the Loup for families and outdoor winter enthusiasts.

  • Natural Luge Sledding differs significantly from Olympic Luge, which uses artificial banked tracks, while Natural Luge Sledding uses existing non-banked groomed trails.
  • Luge Sledding offers family-oriented, steerable sleds with single and double options.
  • Luge Sledding is easy to learn, challenging to master and exciting to ride.
  • Luge Sledding connects to the natural environment on a groomed trail system all can enjoy.

Book a Luge Reservation

Luge Sledding operates on weekends and holiday weeks throughout the season. The Loup offers instructional clinics on how to Luge Sled safely. Luge Sledding is a physical activity which does involve walking and requires some level of fitness. Like any snow sport there is risk associated with luge sledding.

  1. Reservations are per person, however you may make reservations for your friends or family. Same day walk-ups may be added if there is room in a Luge experience group.
  2. When planning your ride, please keep in mind that children 6-9 years old must ride with an adult. Children ages 10 and above may ride solo upon approval of the Luge staff. We highly recommend no children under the age of 6 in participating.
