Stubai Glacier - away from everyday life, into the snow
Stubai Valley 2021: An unforgettable mountain panorama up to an altitude of 3,210 metres, a varied programme for the whole family and regional delicacies - the Stubai Glacier combines it all. Here, winter sports fans can escape everyday life: whether you pack the action in doing one of the many sports on offer, enjoy time high up on the TOP OF TYROL summit platform or relax on one of the sun terraces.
On the Stubai Glacier, you can rely on 26 cable cars and lifts with 35 ski runs up to an altitude of 3,210 metres, guaranteeing perfect conditions with natural powder snow as far as the eye can see. Together with the impressive three-thousand-metre peaks, you’ll be guaranteed an unforgettable holiday. And for everyone who cannot get enough variety: the glacier captivates not only with its varied attractions but also with its proximity to Innsbruck. In just 45 minutes, visitors can get from the snow paradise to the hustle and bustle of the city.

Snowpark, BIG Family and free-riding skills - this is the Stubai Glacier


On the Stubai Glacier, a paradise lies in store not just for beginners and the more advanced but also for professionals too. The Snowpark Stubai Zoo is one of the top snow-park locations in the Alps and in the coming season will be going one better by adding a 300-metre-long Jibline with its own park lift (zoo shuttle). In the autumn and spring, the whole terrain, with the pro, medium, jib and easy line, is one of the largest snowparks in the world and features plenty of sunshine combined with unique mountain panoramas. From 17 to 20 November, the snowpark will be ready with another highlight. The world’s elite of freeskiers will come together at the fifth edition of the F.I.S. Freeski World Cup Stubai, with the finale on 20 November being broadcast live on the Austrian television channel ORF1.

From toddlers upwards young novice skiers to teenage skiers will all find the appropriate offer to suit them including a children’s restaurant and nursery.

The programme on offer in the winter is supplemented by the Slopestyle on the Eisjochferner - a snowpark made for families and novices.
