3. SNOW RELIABILITY FOR SKIING UNTIL MAY

PERFECT CONDITIONS ON THE SLOPES: While it gets pleasantly warm during the day, it is still cold enough at night on the Stubai Glacier for the snow to freeze and the pistes to harden. The result is perfectly groomed slopes on which it is wonderful to carve, board or freeride during your sun skiing day. When, in the course of the day, the sun transforms the slopes with their good grip into the finest firn slopes, the enthusiasm of a winter sports lover can hardly be contained. This is as good as it gets!
