Free ski pass for children under 10 years 

A family skiing holiday or skiing day is always an experience with a difference. What could be better than watching the offspring’s first attempts on skis or the kids and teens carving down the slopes.

We do our best to provide perfectly groomed pistes for families on every day as well as a top infrastructure. After all, the Stubai Glacier is a real family ski area – this is important to us and we are proud of it.

That’s is why we have had the following rule for a long time now: children under 10 years get a free ski pass (if accompanied by a paying parent).
