Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis: Winter fun for the whole family
Watch as your children proudly make their first turns on the skis, have exuberant snowball fights and go sledding. This is winter holidays at their best. However, if we are honest – does it always work out that well? In the sunny winter sports region of Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis, the chances for that are quite good. The motto “We are family!” is not only a promise, but a living tradition. The winter season starts on 9 December 2021.
More winter fun for everyone
Since last winter, the new “12er-Bahn”, an ultra-modern 8-person chairlift with heated seats and child safety locks, has been transporting winter sports enthusiasts up to the ski slope paradise in Fiss where snow is guaranteed. Not only classic downhill skiers, but also freeriders will benefit from the even better and faster connections in the ski region. Fans of deep snow can look forward to two new freeride routes this winter season. The red, one-kilometre-long Kuhalmroute conquers a drop in altitude of 250 metres and starts below the Kuh Alm restaurant through ungroomed terrain. The Schiltiroute starts at Schönjochl at the Schönjochabfahrt slope and leads over a length of 1.5 kilometres down to Steinegg, 500 metres further down. This means that deep-snow fans can now enjoy free rein on twelve freeride routes altogether.
With No eye will remain dry
What happens when your offspring goes on strike and is not in the mood for skiing? Or if someone’s legs are aching? No problem. Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis offers many alternatives to classic winter sports. An example is Fiss’ newly built toboggan run for families that beckons you to have a great time. The new bewitched toboggan run runs parallel to the Witches’ Trail for around four kilometres as of this winter. Starting in Steinegg, it follows over snow-covered meadows to Kuh Alm Fiss, passes the Sonnenburg Family Restaurant and ends at the bottom station of the Schönjochbahn cable car. The natural toboggan run, which is about three metres wide, can be covered with snow and illuminated for night tobogganing. It has an ideal, not too steep gradient and therefore is also perfect for families with smaller children. A tip worth remembering: every Tuesday, tobogganers of all ages can enjoy a night-time toboggan run on the illuminated slope during an evening of tobogganing and fondue.
For those who did not know, one really does not need a car in Serfaus. The smallest and highest village underground hovercraft train in the world was a worldwide sensation 35 years ago and still is today. Since 2019, it sports a new look, and since last season, thanks to the 130-metre-long, barrier-free access tunnel, winter sports enthusiasts can get from the car park to the underground even faster – and further on into pure snowy bliss.
