Stubai Glacier ski opening

Autumn skiing holidays and events in the Stubai Valley

Austria’s largest glacier ski area – the Stubai Glacier – launches the 2018/2019 winter season with events galore. These include our very own Oktoberfest on 13 and 14 October with music, beer and plenty of snow. Then, from 8 to 11 November, the glacier world requests your company for Austria’s leading equipment testing event: SportScheck Glacier Testival showcases around 50 winter sports brands and is an opportunity to try out more than 3,800 2018/2019 winter season items. The ski resort is so family friendly: children under 10 accompanied by a parent get to ski for free!
