The Stubai Glacier is Austria’s largest glacier resort and was also voted in the top 10 glacier resorts in Europe, showing its credentials as a high-quality ski resort. It’s located just over the Brenner Pass from Italy and is set amongst 3000m peaks, at the top on a clear day you can see all the way across to the Dolomites in Italy, providing skiers with glorious views as they zigzag down the slopes.
Skiing in Stubai:
From October to June, the ski season here lasts a long time making Stubai an ideal location for a ski trip at any time during the long season. There are multiple attractive features at this splendid resort. The 10km long valley run from the mountain station at 3,210m is extremely popular, as is the downhill slope with a 60% incline gradient for those wanting to speed down the slopes. Off-piste skiing is virtually unlimited here with acres to explore at your own speed. The resort also boasts the second best Snowpark in Austria – the Snowpark Stubai Zoo which is a freestyler or snowboarders heaven. Another attractive aspect of Stubai is how common powder snow is, allowing for exciting natural powder-heavy runs. On top of all of this, the lift passes include super sledding slopes at Neustift.
