Winter in Tyrol

Skiing in the Kaunertal Valley, Fiss, Ladis, Serfaus or do you prefer Arlberg …

Kaunertaler glacier

The Kaunertal glacier and Fendels ski areas are located in the Kaunertal ski area. Ski passes are free for children under 9 years.

The Kaunertal glacier offers beautiful ski routes from October to May. 54 km of well-prepared slopes (easy, average, hard).  The snow is generally good quality and there are short waiting times at the ski lifts.

The area is accessible by car (about half an hour). There is a ski bus (free (from 4-day ski pass)) which departs from the bus stop in the heart of the village. There is information on departure times present.

The Kaunertal ski pass also offers the option for a trip to the Pitztal (Pitztaler Gletscher and Rifflsee), but is a good hour’s drive away.


At 13, 16 and 18 km from Kauns respectively are the ski areas Ladis-Fiss-Serfaus. This beautiful and vast ski area has 204 km of slopes, 110 km of cross-country skiing trails and 10 km of toboggan track.

A ski pass is free for children under 5 years.

From Kauns the area can be reached in 15 minutes by car. There is a parking area between Fiss and Serfaus where you can reach the area directly via the Waldbahn.

Fendels (8 minutes by car) is a small family ski area that is also relatively quiet during high season. There is something for everyone here. In addition to blue and red slopes there is also a challenging black slope. Fendels is accessible by ski bus which departs from the valley and goes to Ried. Then take the ski lift to the skiing area.

The SCHI6 pass is recommended if you want to make use of various ski areas. This grants you access to the Kaunertal glacier, Fendels, Nauders and Venet (Zams) in addition to the Ladis-Fiss-Serfaus ski areas.

Also in the area are the Ischl/Samnaun, Kappl/See and even Ski Arlberg ski areas which are easily accessible from St. Anton. It is also pleasant to take a trip to the smaller ski areas just across the border in Italy (Schöneben and Haideralm).
