In Austria's largest glacier ski area, 26 modern cable cars provide comfortable transport to the various slopes. Between 1695 m and 3210 m altitude, snow is guaranteed from October to June. In the Stubai Glacier ski area, you can therefore get to the top. Since last winter, the new 3S Eisgratbahn has been transporting all winter sports guests barrier-free and comfortably in just 12 minutes to the glacier ski area, which extends to an altitude of over 3,000 metres. There, winter sports enthusiasts can expect numerous slopes of every level of difficulty to conquer on skis or on boards. In addition, there is a race course with 25 gates and time measurement. A highlight for experts is the "Daunhill" slope, the steepest slope in the ski area with a maximum gradient of 60 percent. It is considered a special challenge for experienced skiers. Equally interesting is the extra-long valley run, which connects directly to the "Daunhill" run: Over a total length of 10 km, the "Wilde Grub'n" valley run and ski route leads down to the Mutterberg valley station. This involves a difference in altitude of 1500 m.
The Stubai Glacier takes special care of young skiers. For example, childcare with a children's ski school, a kindergarten and a children's restaurant are offered at the BIG Family Stubai Glacier. The BIG Family Ski Camp with snow carousel, Miniland, BIG Family Slalom and Boardercross will thrill the winter sports enthusiasts of tomorrow. Families and pleasure skiers feel right at home on the "BIG Family Fun Slope". Children under 10 enjoy skiing fun free of charge when accompanied by a paying parent.
Freestylers compete in the Stubai-Zoo snow park with easy, medium and pro lines. The park, which is freshly shaped every day, is one of the top snow parks in the world and a meeting place for the local and international snowboard and freeski scene.
Nordic/Winter hikingAlternative winter sports enthusiasts are also sure to find the right leisure activity around the Stubai Glacier ski area. For example, on the winter hiking trail between the mountain station of the Gamsgarten gondola and the viewing platform "Top of Tirol" on the 3333 m high Schaufelspitze. Those looking for an adventure should take part in a guided snowshoe hike organised by the Neustift ski school. Ambitious Nordic winter sports enthusiasts can prepare for the cross-country trails in the valley on the 2 km long high-altitude trail at 2600 m with a skating track. The entry point is at the 6-seater chairlift Murmelebahn. From there you head towards "Wilde Grub'n" and in a large loop over the Daunferner back to the starting point. In addition, another highlight awaits you on the glacier: the Tirol Ice Cave, which is located at an altitude of just under 3000 m at the Eisgrat restaurant. On a 200 m long tour, visitors immerse themselves in a fascinating world of ice and snow and learn interesting facts about the glacier.
skiroutesThe Stubai Glacier has a great offer for freeriders. Thanks to the snow safety, the variety and the numerous freeride possibilities, the Stubai Glacier is one of the best freeride areas in Austria. In the "Powder Department", freeriders will find a comprehensive safety offer. This includes freeride checkpoints for avalanche beacons and avalanche beacon search systems. 13 GPS recorded freeride runs make it easier for freeriders to find their way around. The offer also includes various videos that present the variants.
