The villages below Golica have had a long tobogganing tradition. Is started because of the need to go to work and school in winter when all the paths and roads are covered in snow. Later on recreational tobogganing was developed for the fun in the Karavanke, and it soon became a competitive sport.
Natural tobogganing run Savske jame. It is situated in Planina pod Golico in the area of Savske jame. It was made in the 1970s and then renovated in 1975 for the needs of European championship in 1978. It runs along a forest road in the length of 1034 m. It can be used from December to mid-March, depending on snow conditions. Recreational tobogganing is available. During the intercontinental championship, held from the 15 to 25 January, recreational tobogganing is not possible as the run is prepared for the competition of tobogganing on natural runs, attended by clubs from all over the world. Jesenice Institute of Sport organises also tobogganing for larger groups or sports days for schools.
