The slope highlights

Carving slope: Winter sports fans who want to fine-tune their carving skills should definitely check out the Carving Slope – a wide and perfectly groomed slope. It’s located right by the “Lawensabfahrt” descent.
The speed track and 2 race tracks: Experience the ultimate thrill of speed and benchmark yourself against other skiers and snowboarders. Where? On the race tracks by the Lawensbahn chairlift in Serfaus and by the Schöngampbahn chairlift on the North Side of Fiss or on the speed track by the Zwölferbahn chairlift.

Let the special cameras take a video of you on the parallel race track. Analyse your skills or send the video to your friends afterwards. And action!
Safety on and off the slopes
In order to prevent accidents and crashes with other winter sports fans while skiing, there are a few rules of conduct to abide by. They ensure safety on the slopes. For those who prefer descents in the open terrain – caution is of the essence as well!
The FIS code of conduct at a glance:
Number one rule on the slopes is to be considerate of others – behave in a way that doesn’t endanger anyone else!
Adapt your speed and manner of skiing or snowboarding to your personal ability and the prevailing conditions of the terrain, snow and weather as well as the density of traffic on the slopes.
Skiers and snowboarders approaching from behind must choose their route in such a way that they do not endanger people ahead.
Above, below, to the left or to the right – you’re allowed to overtake others on the slopes. However, you need to keep a safe distance to the overtaken skier or snowboarder.
Entering, starting and moving upwards: Whether you enter a ski slope, start again after stopping or move upwards on the slopes – look up and down the slopes to assure yourself you can do so without endangering others.
Stopping: Skiers and snowboarders should avoid stopping in narrow places or areas where visibility is restricted – unless absolutely necessary. After a fall in such a place, skiers and snowboarders must move clear of the slope as quickly as possible.
Ascent and descent: A skier or snowboarder who is ascending or descending on foot must keep to the side of the slope.
You must respect all signs and markings along the slopes.
In case of an accident, everyone is duty bound to assist.
Obligatory identification: If a crash happens, every person involved – witness, responsible party or not – must be able to present identification.
Together Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis and Recco want to take care of the security in the ski area.
The avalanche rescue system RECCO® is utilized worldwide to rapidly locate burials.
Tips for safe freeriding in the open terrain
Never enter the open terrain by yourself! Off the slopes, the so-called “buddy principle” applies. That means: You need to watch out for each other.
Never enter the open terrain without an avalanche transceiver! Check your equipment for completeness and correct functioning.
Watch out for the avalanche hazard light signals and signs at the ski resort.
