Particularly impressing examples of sprays and powder lines constitute the cinematographic highlights of the teaser clip that was produced exclusively for the upcoming winter season. While only a small group of locals knew about the right freeride spots in the past, now even guests can enjoy freeriding with ease. The hotspots within the winter panorama of Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis are no longer top secret and accessible even without tiresome hiking tours. Snowboarders can choose among 10 marked freeride routes. The length of each route stretches from 600m up to 2000m, the vertical drop extends from 300m to 600m – the feeling during the free ride, though, knows no limits.

More and more snow lovers want to indulge their passion for individuality and creativity off-piste. Safety is always an important issue, though. This is also the reason why Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis has created a broad freeride concept that fulfills all demands. No matter if you are a freeride rookie or already a powder pro, you will find the right difficulty level and the respective route. In addition to a

comprehensive map of all routes, the info panels near the lift exits dispose a “Pieps" testing device, which can be used to check if the equipment is working properly before heading towards the

backcountry. Once you are there, you will leave the usual tracks behind and wallow in pure powder pleasure. Smooth turns and fresh sprays are those feel-good moments that add up to a liberating sense of elation during the run and trigger a longing desire for more, afterwards.
