Beginners to down hill snow sports will find ideal conditions at the „Stubai Glacier“ resort. Thanks to the many easy (blue) rides (12 of 22 slopes) and their ideal distribution throughout the whole resort even an unskilled skier can take any lift without risk of getting stuck at the top. Should you feel too little challenged by the easy trails, you can always switch over to a more challenging intermediate (red)run any time. Total novices we recommend the practice lift „Schaufelschuss“ located directly at the mountain station of the „Eisengratbahn“, from where you can easily switch over to slope 1. Right at the the „Gamsgarten“ mountain station you can find the „Kitzlift“ and the „Murmele“ 6-passenger-chairlift, where grown-up beginners find ideal conditions to take their first steps on skis. For the youngest among the winter sports novices the glacier children’s area located at the „Gamsgarten“ mountain station is a perfect place to get started. The lifts there are particularly designed for children (carpet-like transportation technique). Should you be interested in professional instruction, several local ski schools are happy to help with your first attempts at alpine sports.
