Leisure skiers love the ski area in the Stubai Valley for its mix of wide pistes, dreamlike nature and culinary hotspots.
The Schaufelspitz inter-connected ski area, a large area covering four glaciers, is marked by blue and red pistes. There is also a smaller version covering three glaciers. In-between of all that skiing you can enjoy culinarybreak stops at the fantastic sun terraces that can be found in the whole ski area. Particularly worth a visit is the first floor of the Schneekristall-Pavilion. Cappuccino, Aperol or weiss beer taste twice as good when the sun roof is open. The highlight of every skiing day – a culinary break stop at Schaufelspitz Gourmet-Restaurant .
Athletic Challenges for your Stamina
If you’re the athletic type, Austria’s biggest glacier ski area offers plenty of opportunities to test your stamina. The 10km-long downhill leading from the Wildspitz top terminal (3,210m)to the Mutterberg base station (1,750m) is a true challenge even for best-trained thighs. Another challenge for the ambitious is the black piste with the name of “Daunhill”, which has a maximum gradient of 60%. A compelling invitation for all daredevils.
Young & Wild
Nine ski routes and 13 Powder Department runs – GPS-mapped routes in the open ski area make the Stubai Glacier accessible for freeride skiers and skiers with an affinity to ski mountaineering.
