Let’s head over to Austria. In this article, we’ll introduce you to the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis ski area, the resorts, the activities, including the best places to stay, hire equipment and take lessons. Most importantly, we’ll let you in on the locals’ secrets for a perfect day of skiing!
This large ski resort located in Austria was created by merging the three villages in Tyrol: Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis. It extends across an enormous area, with altitude elevation ranging from 1,200 m to 2,820 m. The immense size of the resort allows skiers of all levels to find their individual happiness. Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis caters for skiers looking for different sensations. The range of unique spaces and mogul trails of all kinds will entice freestylers and the special-reserved children’s areas will delight families. It’s a magnificent ski resort for all tastes, with short waiting times, large ski runs, state-of-the-art ski lifts (8-seater heated chairlifts) and high-altitude restaurants that are excellent value for money. You get all this for the price of a ski pass that’s more affordable than many other ski resorts in the Alps.
