The Stubai Glacier at a glance:

• The largest glacier ski area in Austria
• 45-minute drive from Innsbruck
• Snow guarantee from October to June
• 26 cable cars and lifts
• 3S Eisgratbahn
• 35 easy to challenging downhills, natural snow guarantee

Families appreciate the top resort in the Austrian Stubai Valley for its children-friendly philosophy. In theBIG Family Ski-Camp trained carers lovingly look after the ski kids.

The Tyrol’s flagship ski resort for families also looks after the parents – namely with special conditions. Children to 10 years of age ski for free if accompanied by a paying parent. So it is not surprising that the Stbuai Glacier was crowned being the most family-friendly ski area in the Alps from 2009 to 2013 throughout (ADAC ski guide).



Quite reassuring - the "Kingdom of Snow" offers snow guarantee from October to June.

Logically, the Powder Department, a freeride paradise, is positioned here.


Just as is the Snowpark DC Stubai Zoo with a variety of challenges for the young freeride skier and boarder scene.
