Austria - Upper Inn Valley - Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis
Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis - Skiing on a sunny plateau!
On a high plateau, and embedded in the Tyrolean mountain world, sit the three charming areas of Serfaus, Fiss, and Ladis in one of the sunniest locations in Austria. Snow-security runs all the way into spring, thanks to the numerous snow-making machines, as well as the 2,820 m altitude. Serfaus is ideal for all families with children: the resort is traffic-free. The free village metro connects the parking spaces on the edge of the resort to the central areas of both the resort and the lift stations. Moreover, a countless amount of facilities for children can be found, such as the "Kinderschneealm", the "Murmliland" or "Bertas Indianerland" in Fiss. The professional child care service in the resort, as well as the ski area, guarantee to provide for an unforgettable holiday with the children. A highlight in Serfaus is the "S1" - the modern area around the lift station invites you to go shopping and enjoy yourself! Fiss is, in comparison, a very picturesque resort, with a small promenade area and pretty farms. Ladis, the smallest of the three areas, is also the quietest.
The Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis ski area tempts with its mainly intermediate pistes, sheer, unending freeride opportunities, the best equipped fun parks, a first-class apres ski offer, as well as three different winter shows. Last but not least, cross-country fans and winter hikers will find these areas to be true paradise!
The ski area around Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis counts as one of the top ski areas in the Alps. Here, you have the choice between 196 km of piste of all levels of difficulty as well as 16 km ski routes and 68 lift systems (incl. conveyor belts for children and a village lift) at an altitude of 1,200 - 2,820 m. A dreamy panoramic view opens up on the Schönjoch over the entire ski area up to the Pezid. Serfaus offers, in addition to their wide-spanning, sunny pistes, the black "Lazid-Nord" run, as well as the new "Long Run" category red run in Fiss-Ladis, both of which are raved about by ambitious skiers. On several evenings per week you can go night skiing and even enjoy some culinary delicacies and shows when booked as an extra.
For freestylers, seven funparks can be found in Serfaus and Fiss, with tables, slides, and jumps to use. Furthermore, a first-class deep-snow and freeride area, as well as other excellent areas, can be found on Lazid, Obere Scheid, and Zwölferkopf. Due to its numerous facilities, the ski area is especially made for families with children, and is known for its child-friendly atmosphere.
Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis is not only a top ski area - it also guarantees to entertain with its apres ski! Various bars and huts at the valley station tend to providing entertainment, and later on, the bars and discos in the resort party the night away! In Serfaus, you can meet up in the "Patschi-Pub", and in Fiss, the "Hexenalm" is where it's at!
On Tuesdays, night skiing on the illuminated Möseralm run is available to take part in. A special highlight is the "Adventure Night" 1 x weekly in Serfaus: The Snow & Fun Show entrances you with a laser show and impressive fireworks!
For the adventurers out there, paragliding, snow biking, or a daring ride with an airboard are worth checking out. Nature-lovers and those of you looking for a quieter holiday can enjoy the dreamy winter landscape by horse carriage, or even on the toboggan run.
This resort is a true paradise for cross-country skiiers: a total of 112 km of trails around the towns of Serfaus, Fiss and Ladis offer diverse cross-country trails. The location of the sunny plateau also allows you to have a magnificent panorama view of the surrounding winter landscape. The trails go through the valley as well as in the ski area - which means cross-country skiing is completely unproblematic in the spring.
The trails are predominantly of a more difficult level, but beginners also have nothing to fear. Cross-country skiers with a strong stamina should dare to go on the 26 km (!) long "Fisser Alm": The most challenging trail in the area climbs continuously up until the highest point at 1,882 m and has high demands even for real pros! There are trails of various difficulties, which you can select to suit your mood, such as the "Komperdellloipe" (1,950 - 2,100 m), which requires 13 km of stamina and proficiency.
The cross-country network of Serfaus, Fiss, and Ladis boasts the cross-country official seal of excellency.
