Leisure skiers love the ski area in the Stubai Valley for its mix of wide pistes, dreamlike nature and culinary hotspots.
The Schaufelspitz inter-connected ski area, a large area covering four glaciers, offers a fantastic ski or snowboard tour of the ski area. It connects the ski area and covers four glaciers with blue and red pistes. There is also a smaller version covering three glaciers. In-between of all that skiing you can enjoy culinary break stops at the fantastic sun terraces that can be found in the whole ski area. Particularly worth a visit is the first floor of the Schneekristalll Pavillon. Enjoy a cappuccino, an Aperol spritz or a weiss beer. It tastes twice as nice if the roof is open on sunshine days. The highlight of every culinary break is the Schaufelspitz restaurant. Let us spoil you!
