Added on toboggan runs, toboggan sport shops etc.

Toboggan is a small sled a person sits in, usually used over snow particularly on a slope. There are racing toboggan and bobsleigh runs that are snowed or iced in winter, see Piste Maps (piste:type=sled).

For a bobsled run also sport=bobsleigh is used.

Further, there are "summer toboggan" runs for leisure, with sleds on wheels in a trough or on rails (similar to a roller coaster), also called Alpine Coaster or Luge, which are run as tourist attractions. These are either tagged with attraction=summer_toboggan or attraction=alpine_coaster instead.

For mapping an area that is used for casually sledging with the family only piste:type=sled is used, since sport=toboggan is for dedicated toboggan tracks.

How to map

Draw the way way of the toboggan track and add sport=toboggan to mark toboggan run. For ones used for racing add also leisure=track

Further tags
