Situated at the head of the Stubai Valley, the Stubai Glacier is the largest ski area in the Innsbruck area. It is also one of the most popular all-year ski destinations in Europe. Winter sees over 150 km of pistes aimed squarely at the beginner-intermediate. Only a handful of runs at Stubai Glacier are rated expert but the terrain does offer some good off-piste opportunities. The snow record is good but be warned; it can be seriously cold and there is little or no cover provided by trees as you are right at the top of the mountains. Off the slopes you will find two restaurants, a first class hotel and an après-ski bar. Local villages are the main source of accommodation but the proximity of Stubai Glacier to Innsbruck means that this is not really a problem. One hut provides accommodation on the mountain.

Visitor Reviews of Stubai Glacier
Tirolerhund from United Kingdom writes:
I've skied Stubai on 3 sperate days in the past 12 months and have to say the place is epic! It's so much more than a glacier with 110 km of marked pistes, many of which are non glacial. The snow is always great from the Dresdener Hut upwards and Ski Route (Itinerary)14 to the bottom is magnificent.
For hard core skiers the off-piste is virtually unlimited, with further challenges for ski-touring and couloir thrill seekers. There are crevasses but in the core season these are no issue, however, off-piste is a no-no in the summer months.
For beginners the area around Gamsgarten is perfect with dry snow guaranteed throughout the winter and well into April.
Great choice of restaurants on the mountain with the Dresdener Hut being great value.
Apres-ski at Gamsgarten is incredible, especially when they open the roof and everybody starts dancing on the tables, before de-camping down to the Mutterberger Alm at the bottom for more of the same! Classic Austrian party time.
Mutterberger Alm is also a great 4 star hotel and very reasonably priced for ski in-ski out lovers.
