A Tyrolean winter wonderland welcomes families to 212km of doorstep skiing featuring mixed ability terrain and one of the best children’s ski areas in the Alps. Resort life centres around the village of Fiss, a traditional picture-postcard Tyrolean enclave where families are made welcome and access to winter sports facilities is second to none. In addition to a thrilling gamut of skiing activities, visitors can experience snowcat rides, zip wire thrills, family tobogganing, Segway trekking and more. Particularly attractive is the Panorama Enjoyment Trail, winding past mountain huts and the hammock village for scenic relaxation. For an unparalleled adrenalin rush try the Fisser Flieger, a hang glider-like ride that whizzes four passengers above the Möseralm at up to 80km per hour.
Fiss shares a 212km ski area with the neighbouring villages of Serfaus and Ladis. As well as good nursery slopes, the high snow-sure slopes such as the 10km Frommes red piste are absolutely perfect for intermediates while experts can tackle runs like the Kamikaze and Zwölfer-Sportiv. There's a dedicated carving run, numerous terrain parks, two race courses and a skimovie run for a chance to capture and analyse your descent. Kids will adore Berta's Kinderland ski park with its carousels and conveyor belts. 'Feelgood' rest stops dot the slopes for those more laid-back moments.
