An alpine slide, also called Alpine Coaster is a long chute on the side of a hill, usually built by ski resorts to supplement summer income. A wheeled cart is used to navigate the slide.

These are attractions for everyone, but when it comes to a sport use sport=toboggan or sport=bobsleigh.

How to map

Draw the way way of the toboggan track and add attraction=summer_toboggan.

In addition, leisure=track is often given.

Further tags

For the attraction

Add a node node at the start or middle of the facility and tag it with

  • tourism=attraction - An object of interest for a tourist, or a purpose-built tourist attraction
  • attraction=summer_toboggan
  • name=* - The primary name: in general, the most prominent signposted name or the most common name in the local language(s)
  • opening_hours=* - Describes when something is open or closed. There is a specific standard format for this data

attraction=summer_toboggan is not rendered on many maps. Some mappers add leisure=track also on objects that are not used for racing to force rendering. Please do not use such tagging for the renderer.
