Do you remember that sense of expectation as autumn came to an end, when, suddenly, it happened … like tiny, sparkling stars, the first snowflakes started to drop from the sky. Just a few to start. And before long, everything was covered in white, and a new adventure had begun. In a thrilling and inspiring world.
The Schlosshotel Fiss and the Fiss-Ladis ski school invite you to rediscover the winters of old.
On winter walks and snowshoeing excursions. Far from the pistes and across a magical winter idyll, as you follow the tracks of shy deer, or enjoy cross-country skiing on 116km of perfectly groomed runs.
Relish the breathless excitement of guided ski tours, unbridled freeriding, or the latest winter sports crazes including snow biking and ski foxing. Details of the full range of winter activities available to you and your family are available from us or the Fiss-Ladis ski school.
The horizon isn’t a boundary – only a milestone. One of many along the way to energising beauty spots and the most stunning views in the region. Far from the slopes and in the heart of a pristine winter idyll, snowshoeing takes you to dreamlike snowy landscapes. Absorb absolute peace as you set the rhythm of time.
If you’re a cross-country skier, nothing beats a freshly groomed track that extends beyond the horizon. 112km of cross-country ski runs in the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis region offer amazing variety and altitudes of up to 2,000m for perfect conditions until well into April. If you’ve never tried it before, we recommend the cross-country skiing course offered by the Fiss-Ladis ski school.
A journey to the primal world of the Alps. Far from the slopes, join ski mountaineering and guided ski tours to experience the mountains as they really are: untamed, wild and breathtaking. After an indescribable sense of achievement, ski back to the valley in the finest, deep snow.
Freeriding is like dancing with the mountain. A spectacular ballet between improbably shaped rocks, steep slopes and magnificent flashes of time beyond the tree line. Float, as if on air, towards a world that gently receives you before you re-ascend to the peak of emotion – ten freeride routes are waiting for you to conquer them.
Winter sports crazes such as snow biking and ski foxing will definitely take you down the slope at high speed but that’s not entirely the point: mostly these activities cause much hilarity – for participants as much as for those watching!
‘In the end it comes down to having a good time, to loving the learning experience,
and everything you learn – and even though there is so much to absorb, you never get that feeling of being back at school. This is like being with friends, and that’s what is
so special about the Fiss-Ladis ski school.’
