PRESS RELEASE: Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis
Since the very beginning, the family-friendly bike region Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis has been known for its incredible diversity. With its own bike park, the bike school as well as breathtaking and famous single trails like Frommestrail or Högtrail, Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis has become well-known as a bike El Dorado, suitable for riders of any age. The all-new Jochtrail single trail is all set to live up to this image, too.
Bike park manager Christian Zangerl and mountain bike professional Angie Hohenwarter will take you for a ride through the area.
Christian Zangerl is the godfather of mountain biking in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis. Christian has been the manager of Bikepark Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis since 2016, but he has lived in the region for almost 20 years now. When he moved to Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis during the winter of 2001...
The Bikepark will open its gates on June 27th. Some of the sections were completely reworked. Christian Zangerl is really looking forward to opening up the Bikepark for guests, talking to them and getting some feedback on their work on the trails. Personally he mostly likes riding with friends and people who share his fascination for mountain biking. From that sort of people he will definitely find many in the Bikepark.
The Högtrail scores in many ways. On the one hand, it is ideal for beginners to gain their first mountain bike experience. On the other hand, it also offers a great variety of elements for more experienced bikers. Within the 3.8 km bike enthusiasts will find easy-going waves, that give the opportunity for jumping as well as natural banks and pleasant roots.
Bikepark Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis, as well as the surrounding single trails and MTB-Tours, will be open from 27 June, and all trails are waiting to be ridden and explored. Besides the infamous Frommestrail, riders will be able to try the brand-new Jochtrail. The 5.8 km long trail offers a direct connection from Fiss to Serfaus. The Jochtrail starts at the top of the Schönjochbahn, at 2,440 meters above sea level, at the Fisser Joch. From there, it will take riders over the Mittleren Sattelkopf to the middle station of the Komperdellbahn, situated almost 500 meters lowers. The trail features rough and technical root sections, as well as north shore elements and runs parallel to the new Source Trail (Quellenweg). Asked about the right bike for the family-friendly bike region, Christian only has one answer: "For varied trails like these, you need an all-around bike, so the answer is simple – an Enduro! Besides that, all you need is friends and good times. From time to time, an after-bike-beer is welcome, too."
