Important information for hikers

The Stubaier Gletscherbahn lifts are in high-alpine terrain. Unless you are in immediate proximity of the stations, you must expect high-alpine dangers. The hiking trails of the area are not part of the offer of the Stubaier Gletscherbahn lifts. The depiction of the hiking trails is not sufficient for tour planning.  It is absolutely necessary to inform on the level of difficulty of the respective tour, its demands on the hikers and the trail characteristics before starting a hike. The hiking trails are not maintained by the Stubaier Gletscherbahn.The Stubaier Gletscherbahn assume no liability whatsoever for accidents happening on the hiking trails and in the alpine terrain outside of the lift stations. In case of detrimental conditions (snow, storm, fog etc.) the hiking trails are considerably more demanding of impassable! We recommend a personal tour consultancy in the mountain guide offices. .
