Route tip for mountaineers

A ridge walk and cable car hopping in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis

On the Schönjoch, hikers can experience a balancing act of the special kind. First, you take the Waldbahn cable car up to the Sunliner and then the Komperdell cable car to the mid station. Just plop down in the cable car and soak up the sun as it gently sways up the mountain. 

The ridge walk across three summits starts at the middle station of the Komperdell cable car. The first leg is also the highest point of the hike: the Vordere Brunnenkopf at 2,685 metres above sea level. Then, you’ll continue to the beautiful scenic viewpoint up on the Oberer Sattelkopf at 2,596 metres. Once you’ve reached the summit, you’re not far from your goal. One more step and you’ll be rewarded with a breath-taking view of Serfaus, Högsee lake, the Komperdell and all the way to the Lazid. Then, it’s time to take some holiday snap shots and a little breather! 

The early bird catches the worm: Start your day early and head up into the Inntal mountains. Watching the sunrise up at the summit and squinting at the first few rays as they climb over the mountain tops – that’ll be a sight to behold! 

Tip: The hike can be reached from the Fisser Joch as well! And in case you’re hesitant to tackle the tour by yourself, you may take part in a guided hike! More info …

SOS-GEO-Location

Mountain hiking is usually a pretty safe sport and emergency cases are highly rare. But still, you can not preclude happenings such as sudden health problems or getting into bad weather or thunder storms, where you might need immidiate help.

The SOS-system for mountain hikers in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis rests on two columns. Column number one is the hiking map, which you can find inside of the hiking guide. In this map you will find all important signposts with the related numbers. The second column is the SOS-signpost in the terrain itself, on which emergency signs got affixed this spring.

The whole region contains about 500 of these signs, which are provided with green-white labels. These signs show the number of the signposts, the telephone number of the mountain rescue service and the telephone number of the international rescue service, the map datum, the GPScoordinates and the current height above the sea level.

If an emergency situation appears, you can dial the emergency number with your cellphone and give out information about the GPS-coordinates and the map datum (for example: WGS 84). This allows them to find your current position with centimetre precision and the rescue service does not loose any time by searching for an inaccurate declared position.

EMERGENCY APP MOUNTAIN RESCUE TYROL

The app is intendee for all those nature lovers and amateur athletes in Tirol who like to move in the open air and in the mountains and have a smart phone with iOS or Android.
This is the only emergency app that is connected directly to the control center Tirol.

The main functions in an emergency include:

  • Automatic transmission of personal and location data (GPS coordinates) to the control center Tirol via the internet or SMS.
  • Establishing a telephone connection to the control center Tirol.

When correctly carried out, Nordic Walking improves the body’s fitness levels and aerobic stamina (cardiovascular system). It also helps you to lose weight. The careful use of Nordic Walking poles strengthens both the legs and the upper part of the body. Joints are relieved and the area around the shoulders and back of the neck becomes more flexible.
