Route description
Starting point:

Parking is available in the village. The parking areas of the Fiss mountain lifts are officially only open to lift customers...
We start at the beginning of the pistes in order to quickly reach the forest paths.

Fiss can also be reached by postbus from Landeck.


Follow the blue piste until you reach the children's ski school (many "magic carpets"). From there, a marked trail with a tour information board branches off. Follow this path for about 2km, gently ascending until a steeper path bends left into the forest. Usually there is also a clear track here. The trail now continues in a relatively direct line up the forest up to about 1750m and another longer, flat traverse to the right follows. This leads back to the red piste (Frommes run).

Follow the ski slope uphill for a short while and then leave it again to the right. Either at the peak of the big curve (1920m) or at a small bridge above the curve (1960m) to ascend over pastures in zigzag to the summit (large cross).


From the cross you traverse on the ridge in the direction of Schönjöchl, but after about 700m you descend to the left to the slope. Descent via the piste back to the starting point.
