The Stubai Glacier for your early-season escapade
For skiers and snowboarders, October/November are often defined by anticipation. Watching webcams, waiting for winter weather to arrive and for the mountains to turn white. But if you’re lucky, November is the month when the first turns of the (hopefully long) season are made. Usually the October storm which deposited snow across the Alps meant that it is time to wax up the skis and head to Stubai Glacier, one of the ski areas in the Alps that are already open for business. The Italian Dolomites loom far off on the horizon in one direction, while in the other direction the wide Inn Valley makes its way north towards the German border. From a vantage point at 3.210 mt, the Alps stretch out in every direction. There aren’t many views that can beat the one from the very top of the Stubai Glacier but do you know the best things about standing at the top of Tyrol? So here are 7 reasons and 1 video why you should visit Stubai for an early-season escapade.
Getting a head start
Stubai is not a summer skiing area as such, but due to its high altitude and glacial slopes, it typically operates from October to June. How much of the terrain is open entirely depends on snow conditions, however Stubai is known for offering some of the best conditions during the autumn season (October and November) and again in the spring. At the start of November, usually it is already possible to ski down to the Middlestation Fernau at 2.300 mt, meaning only one gondola to download at the end of the day. At this time of the year in other ski resorts there are the Ski and Snowboard Shows, ski movie premieres and the shops fill up with all the latest kit. All of which aims to create a bit of buzz ahead of the coming winter. But do you know what’s a much better way to get buzzing about winter? Actually go skiing.
Special City Guide: Neustift im Stubaital
Already the Romans left their marks in this area. The Stubaital valley has been mentioned for the first time in 1000 AC under the name of “Stupeia”. However, Neustift im Stubaital is surrounded by majestic mountain peaks. Exactly 109 mountains tower in this area, which are more than 3.000 metres high. Neustift, located only 20 km from the Alpine city of Innsbruck, is characterised by the parish church Saint Georg. This church, by the way the second largest village church of Tyrol, features an interior with magnificient frescos.
In Neustift im Stubaital and surroundings, there are several hiking trails, e.g. the alpine fauna educational trail, the “WildeWasserWeg” and the popular Stubai high path. However, there are also four outdoor swimming pools in the surroundings, providing refreshment on hot summer days. Moreover the Mieders summer sledge track guarantees fun and action along 40 steep turns. More comfortable? The “Stubaier Alpenexpress”, a pick-up train, takes you from the mountain station Koppeneck to Maria Waldrast.
