Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis at a Glance

True to the motto „Where my heart is at home“, the Tyrolean holiday region of Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis represents variety and completely carefree winter holidays at the highest level. It is a place of well-being, where all guests can take a break and relax in a free and carefree manner. For singles as well as best friends, families or three-generation groups. Because the mountains there not only have plenty to offer the grown-ups, but also the little ones. The three mountain villages, each of which enjoy history in abundance, are situated on a sunny high plateau above the Upper Tyrolean Inntal valley, surrounded by the striking mountain peaks of the Samnaun mountain range and the Ötztal Alps. Between 1,200 and 2,828 meters above sea level, the holiday region offers all guests the best conditions for a multifaceted winter vacation: activities for winter sports enthusiasts. Variety for the whole family. Adventures for thrill seekers. Breath-taking panoramas for those who like to take it slow. Extraordinary specialties for food lovers.

The Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis holiday region is situated on a high plateau at an altitude of 1,200 to 1,400 metres above the Upper Inntal valley of Tyrol. With over 2,000 hours of sunshine every year, this ranks as the sunniest region in Tyrol. 

The three villages of Serfaus, Fiss and Ladis offer skiing fun at an altitude of between 1,200 and 2,828 metres and can thus guarantee snow throughout the winter.

The 2023/24 winter season begins on Friday 8 December 2023 and ends on Sunday 14 April 2024.

The new Komperdellbahn in Serfaus:
  With an impressive investment of more than 60 million euros, Komperdell cable car company is setting
  new standards: from December 2023, the brand-new Komperdellbahn will transport all mountain enthusiasts to the top of the Komperdell with
  an exceptional level of comfort. The 10-passenger gondolas enable a transport capacity of up to 3,000 people per hour and impress with their
  modern design and generous interior space. Skis and snowboards can now be carried in the gondola. In order to guarantee comfortable boarding
  and alighting, even with children, the cable car runs at a reduced speed in the stations. These areas are also suitable for pushchairs and barrier-free access.
  The route takes you to the Komperdell via a newly built mid station on the Mittelabfahrt and offers several advantages: Firstly, the Gampen area is
  relieved, as ski and snowboard school groups can easily ski down the Mittelabfahrt to the mid station. Secondly, the last, steeper part of the descent
  can be avoided with a descent from the station to the valley. The Leithe Wirt restaurant is just a few minutes' walk from the mid station via an additional
  (winter) hiking trail.
  The new features go even further – the bottom station now merges with the slope a little further north. This makes the entire Serfaus bottom station
  area much more spacious and generous. The ski depot in the existing bottom station building has been generously extended and equipped with around
  5,000 parking spaces. The quality of service will of course be maintained, as the new ski depot will continue to focus on personal service.
  The top station has been integrated into the existing Komperdell building, with all levels connected by escalators and lifts for convenient transport.
Serfaus middle slope:
  The last section of the Mittelabfahrt (below the new mid station of the Komperdellbahn) has been completely redesigned, allowing almost all skiers
  to ski down to the Serfaus bottom station without any problems.
Schönjochbahn cable car top station panorama platform in Fiss:
  All guests can reach the new panorama platform in Fiss directly from the exit of the Schönjochbahn. From here you have a unique view of the
  surrounding mountains and peaks.
Widening of the slopes at Hageleeck in Fiss:
  In summer 2023, the Frommesabfahrt in the Hageleeck area has been extended. The widening of the previously narrow section is an important
  improvement for the popular Frommesabfahrt and further enhances the descent.
Smartphone Ski Ticket:
  The new digital smartphone ski ticket is an alternative to the traditional keycard and is available in the online ski ticket shop. All you need is a
  compatible smartphone and the key2ski app. The smartphone logs in via Bluetooth and the access reader opens automatically.
Powerbank stations:
  Powerbanks can now be picked up and borrowed at numerous Chimpy stations throughout the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis region. They can be returned
  at any Chimpy point in Europe. No app or registration is required for borrowing.
