FISS

From Roman village to top ski area

Even the Romans appreciated the fantastic location: they set up camp on the Via Claudia Augusta in Ladis, and were thus probably the first ‘tourists’ to make their way across our extraordinary plateau. Centuries later, the three villages of Serfaus, Fiss and Ladis became one of the world’s most popular ski areas: on peak days, up to 22,500 winter sports enthusiasts head for Tyrol’s Ski Dimension to enjoy all the amenities a modern holiday region has to offer – as well as the charm of a bygone era. The ski region has benefited from investments totalling more than €200 million in the last ten years, and visitors certainly appreciate it. 80% of the piste area in the 450-hectare ski region is covered by snow-making equipment, which means that skiing is guaranteed from December until April.

FANTASTIC FISS

The Hotel Tirol is located at the heart of Fiss, a village with a population of around 1,000. Thanks to its 600-year-old centre, Fiss still exudes the original appeal of a Rhaeto-Romanic clustered village. Until 1928 there was no road to Fiss; only a path for ox-drawn carts led to the Alpine village.

Life is much easier today, and holidaymakers appreciate the close proximity to the lifts as well as the extensive programme of children’s activities such as the Fiss-Ladis ski school’s Bertas Kindervilla in Bertas Kinderland at the Sonnenbahn’s midway station. Bolder visitors board the Fisser Flieger or the Skyswing and soar to lofty heights.

The Fisser Flieger flying machine resembles a hang-glider and takes four passengers. It accelerates quickly and then races over the Möseralm at over 80km/h and up to 48m above ground level. By contrast, the Skyswing gives passengers the experience of zero gravity. It seats up to eight, and features three setting: from a gentle rocking motion to a full loop.
