Serfaus, located in the Tirol, boasts 2000 hours of sunshine each year and those British skiers who have already sampled the delights of the village and ski slopes have fallen in love with the resort.
The ski area - known as "Tirol's Skidimension Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis" - is a special treat for winter sports enthusiasts. There are 160km of pistes from blue beginners to black for the downhill "experts". There is no shortage of uphill transport with 53 modern lifts ensuring "no waiting" between 1200m and the top of the mountains at 3000m.
If you prefer cross country skiing, there are no fewer than 111km of prepared runs.
The ski season extends from early December through to the end of April and numerous snow-making machines ensure the lower slopes are "topped up" throughout the season when Mother Nature fails to deliver!
Serfaus also boasts something really special. It's own underground train which transports visitors (free of charge)from the valley station ensuring the resort streets are almost free of traffic!
Serfaus has a wide range of accommodation from 5-star "wellness" hotels to very comfortable pensions (guests houses) and holiday flats/chalets. The village has a good choice of restaurants and plenty of apres-ski entertainment.
There is tobogganing, snow-shoe walking and 40 working farms when you are not out on the slopes. Serfaus is intent on preserving the village's long-established character.
