The snow does not settle too often in Lucerne city, but when it does local folk head up to the back of the conservatorium (Map F-1) for city sledging. On milder winter days you may need to seek out a higher altitude for sledging possibilities. Both Mount Pilatus (www.pilatus.ch) and Mount Rigi (www.rigi.ch) offer sledging routes, usually open Mid-December to beginning of March. You can go up by cable car / train, rent sledges for around 10Sfr and down you go. Pilatus also rents snow bikes, airboards and minibobs, whereas Rigi has various runs and also offers snowshoe rental and night sledging for the more adventurous. Check the websites for more information. Be sure to have some good shoes and warm clothing, as it can get chilly on the mountains.
