Bavarians on sleds zoom down a mostly straight section of the Blomberg rodelbahn. It's possible to go down two to a sled, but steering and staying in control become much more tricky. While rodeln, as alpine sledding is called, is fantastically fun, one should remember the very real hazard of crashing. Using one's feet to maintain a controlled speed is highly recommended.
