Kids, teens and adults love the new Bikepark. There is a whole map of downhill trails plus four fun zones in the area around the Waldbahn valley station: The Kids Park is designed specifically for Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis' youngest guests. Here, they can develop and improve on their cycling skills as they roll down the trails on their training bikes. Before you embark on the real thing, test your dexterity and balance on one of the easier obstacle courses in the Training Area, with simple ramps and banked turns. The remaining two zones are reserved for experts: the Pumptrack with jumps and berms and the Slopestyle area with tabletop jumps of various sizes, wooden step-up/step-down constructions and perfectly devised ramps.
As soon as you're ready for the proper mountain biking experience, the Waldbahn will take you up to an altitude of 1,830 metres. There, you have the choice between three downhilll tracks for three different skill levels: The blue Family Line covers a distance of almost three kilometres and is ideal for beginners and families. The two blue+ tracks Vuelta and Morning Glory are slightly more demanding – and exciting! – than the easy Family Line. So if you are feeling a little adventurous...give them a try! The red Strada del Sole is much more challenging. It is the ultimate freeriding track for experienced and expert cyclists, with a variety of jumps and berms. Dart or roll over the ramps distributed along the 2.6 kilometre trail at your leisure. You can make the biggest leaps on this track – if you're fast enough, that is. The most tricky trail is the black one: Hill Bill. It is approx. two kilometres long, partially covered in roots, has drops, jumps and all kinds of other challenges for the skilled freerider – including obstacles, installations and constructions with three different degrees of difficulty.
At the Waldbahn valley station, there is a bike shop and rental service as well as the bike school that offers introductory courses and advanced training with personal guides who help you perfect your cycling skills.
