Getting there

  • Getting there

    Is it allowed to camp/stay overnight at the parking lot?

    Outside of the operating hours, the parking of camper vans is “wild camping” according to the Tyrolean Camping Act. The Tyrolean mountain rescue service regularly monitors compliance with the ban.
    During operating times, use of the parking area is free of charge.

    The closest campsite (Camping Edelweiß) is in Volderau, 8km from the valley station. From there a free ski bus leaves every 15 minutes.

  • Getting there

    Is it possible to park a mobile home at the base station during the day, if one leaves again after skiing?

    Yes, of course mobile homes can park on our car park. We ask you to notice though that our car park is closed from 6:00 p.m. onwards for safety reasons and that parking and in particular camping is not allowed there.

  • Getting there

    What should I do if all parking spaces are taken?

    If there are no more parking spaces at the base stations of the Stubai Glacier, there are additional car parks in Falbeson and Volderau.

    You can leave your car there and take the Stubai Glacier bus directly from the additional car parks to the Stubai Glacier base station. After your day skiing, the bus brings you back to your car. You can take any bus line or the ski bus to the car park, since they all stop at the additional car parks.

    Such exceptional situations are possible on strong November weekends.

    Usually you are able to park right at the Eisgratbahn or Gamsgartenbahn base station.

  • Getting there

    Is there a free ski bus?

    Yes, the ski bus in the Stubai Valley (Schönberg to the Stubai Glacier) is free of charge for all winter sports enthusiasts.

  • Getting there

    How do I get to the Stubai Glacier?

     It is best to take the ski bus from the main train station in Innsbruck (Innsbruck Hauptbahnhof), bus no. 590, directly to the Mutterberg base station at the Stubai Glacier.

    Alternatively you can get there by car. Free parking directly at the 3S Eisgratbahn base station.

      Details for getting there can be found here.

    What do I have to consider with the ski pass with free choice of day (optional subscription)?

    The optional ski pass is our offer for all those who like to be flexible during their holiday. This means that if you have opted for an optional ski pass, you can choose your own ski days within the specified days, e.g. 4 in 6: 4 days skiing within 6 days, 2 days break.

    If, for example, you visit another mountain railway for tobogganing on your days off and buy a toboggan ticket for this, please don't forget to take your ski ticket out of your jacket. This will be counted each time you pass a turnstile at a mountain railway in the Stubaital, i.e. one day of skiing will be deducted. Unfortunately, we can no longer refund this day. If you have any questions, please contact our ticket office team on site.

Reasons to close the ski area

  • Reasons to close the ski area

    Erhalte ich im Fall einer Sturmsperre mein Geld zurück?

    The Stubai Glacier ski resort is situated in a high-alpine region. Due to current weather and environmental conditions (e.g., storms, avalanche danger, heavy rain, etc.), it is possible that we may have to close the facilities. This decision is never taken lightly and is always made with the safety of our guests in mind.

    The terms and conditions of cable cars generally do not provide for any refund, extension, or postponement of the validity period of the ticket if facilities cannot be operated due to weather conditions or other reasons, or if there is a suspension of operations (Stubai Glacier's terms and conditions).

    What to do? If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our on-site cashier team or our customer service at info@stubaier-gletscher.com.

  • Reasons to close the ski area

    From which wind speed onwards do lift operations have to be stopped due to storm?

    This question cannot be answered easily, since not only the wind speed, but also the direction the wind is coming from and the forecast are considered. It is a fact though that from an average wind speed of 50 km/h skiing pleasures are considerably affected, even if the lifts might still be in operation.

  • Reasons to close the ski area

    Is it possible to decide on the previous day whether the ski area will be closed on the next day?

    The operations management decides on every day before the planned opening anew whether the Stubai Glacier will be opened and the lifts in operation.

    Before the decision is made, current parameters such as wind speed and direction, avalanche danger and other environmental factors are considered and based on these the decision whether a safe operation can be guaranteed is made. Sometimes the operation start may be delayed, because the operations management has to wait and see how the weather develops. If the weather improves, operations can start later. If they stay the same or get worse, we cannot start operations for safety reasons.

    Current information on the open lifts can be found here: https://www.stubaier-gletscher.com/stubai-live/geoeffnete-anlagen/


  • Reasons to close the ski area

    I rented ski equipment at the Stubai Glacier. What happens in case of a storm closure day?

    You've rented your ski or snowboard equipment at one of our sports shops in the ski area, but you can't use it due to a storm closure day.

    No worries, you'll receive a credit for this closure day. Please contact the sports shops at the valley stations for this (Shop Eisgrat Valley Station 05226/8141 ext. 159, Shop Gamsgarten Valley Station 05226/8141 ext. 158). If the access road is closed due to avalanche danger or similar, you can also contact the Stubai Glacier ticket office in Neustift - preferably in person, or by phone at 05226/2789.

  • Reasons to close the ski area

    My skiing gear is stored in the ski depot at Stubai Glacier, but the access road to the glacier is closed. What can I do?

    If you find yourself in this situation, please get in touch with the Stubai Glacier ticket office in Neustift - either in person or by calling 05226/2789. Our colleagues will assist you and organize the forwarding of your private skiing equipment or the return of rental equipment.


  • Snow

    How is the exact snow depth determined?

    On average there are 6-9 metres of fresh snow in the winter season. The maximum snow depth in the previous years was 13.87 metres, the lowest 6.39 metres.

    If for example fresh snow of a depth of 1 metre is carried away by wind, this is considered for the total snow depth (snow depths rise less).


  • Webcams

    Why are the webcams not working?

    We want our guests to be able to inform about the conditions on the Stubai Glacier in advance. This is why we have installed several webcams in the ski area. Because of their positions, some are at an altitude of more than 3,000m, the webcams are exposed to forces of nature. It is always possible that the webcams have connection problems or fail completely. We ask for your understanding if not all webcams are always in operation.

Slopes and slope preparation

  • Slopes and slope preparation

    How often are pistes prepared on the glacier?

    All open pistes on the Stubai Glacier are prepared daily after operations stop. If there is fresh snow in the evening on during the night, a further preparation is executed in the night or in the early morning before the start of the operations.

    Details on the daily piste preparation can be found in our preparation report.


  • Slopes and slope preparation

    What is the difference between ski pistes and routes?

    A ski route is a marked but unprepared ski downhill that is not checked. A ski piste on the other hand is a marked ski downhill that is secured from dangers and checked and normally also prepared.

    Ski routes are usually avalanche-safe and do not endanger nature. Along them you can enjoy deep snow skiing. Ski routes are marked by not being prepared and mostly by a demanding routeing.


  • Dogs

    Can I bring my dog to the Stubai Glacier?

    Dogs are always welcome on the Stubai Glacier. Dogs can be transported in the gondola lifts. Dogs are only taken on the gondola lift with a lead and muzzle.

    Dogs cannot be transported on chairlifts and T-bar lifts.

    Muzzles can be borrowed at the valley station for a deposit of EUR 25.

  • Dogs

    Can my dog enter the restaurants on the Stubai Glacier?

    Provided they are kept on a leash, well-behaved four-legged friends are allowed in almost all restaurants on the Stubai Glacier.

    We ask for your understanding that dogs are not allowed in the Restaurant Schaufelspitz restaurant.

Photo and film recordings

  • Photo and film recordings

    Can I fly my drone on the Stubai Glacier?

    Basically the operation of drones (unmanned aircrafts) is in Austria only allowed with a valid operating license by AustroControl. Drone flights on the Stubai Glacier are only possible after prior notification to the ski resort operator.


  • Others

    Are there reimbursements in case of sports accidents?

    In case of sports accidents (skiing or tobogganing) the persons concerned get a reimbursement for the remaining, unused days upon presentation of a medical report (by a local doctor). There are no reimbursements for relatives of the injured person.
