Stubai Valley

With guaranteed snow from October to July, the Stubai Glacier is a great spot for a weekend trip from Munich- whether you are warming up for winter, want a weekend ski blast or fancy exploring the Tirol with some skiing included. As Austria’s biggest glacier ski area it provides a wide range of pistes to suite all levels of skiers. Intermediate skiers can enjoy comfortable wide pistes for building confidence and practising technique. Advanced skiers may choose to take on the challenge of the 10km-long downhill leading from Wildspitz top terminal (3,210m) to the Mutterberg base station (1,750m) – sure to make your thighs burn! 

In between all of this there are plenty of spots to take in breath-taking panoramas and sample the delights of Austrian mountain food.  

Not only is the Stubai glacier easy to reach- within 2 hrs 30mins drive from Munich (50 minutes from Innsbruck), but ski hire is hassle-free as you can get this easily on the mountain on arrival and can even book it in advance to speed up the process- making this truly a drive-in, ski out experience!  

In addition to the extensive glacial ski area, the Stubai valley offers more ski alternatives including the Schlick 2000 ski area- perfect for beginner skiers and enough variety for an exciting ski day for intermediate and advanced skiers. For winter hikers and snow-shoe walkers there is also a selection of marked routes to explore the winter wonderland.  

With 62km of cross-country routes in the Stubai valley at varying altitudes, cross-country skiers-skaters and classic- are guaranteed plenty to explore in top conditions.

Join us in the Stubaital for a fabulous Ski, Spa & City break in March 2016!
