In the “Kingdom of Snow” real snow is in plentiful supply


One of the most important factors for freeriders is the quality, and indeed quantity, of natural snow. In February 2016, the average snow depth on Stubaier Gletscher was 245 cm. In addition, 5 cm of fresh snow fell on average every day. These figures can’t be topped by any other ski area in the country. It’s no wonder then that Stubaier Gletscher has developed an outstanding reputation among freeride skiers and tourers.

12 freeride runs across the ski area

Stubaier Gletscher is one of the few ski areas with its very own “freeride trail map”. We have included the map in the images accompanying this test category. In fact, there are marked off-piste runs down from seemingly every key lift station alongside the groomers back down to the valley. However, before you take to the deep stuff, please ensure that you stop by the freeride checkpoint on Eisgrat or at Gamsgarten. These checkpoints provide information boards with detailed descriptions of the routes and current avalanche warnings. You can get more information, videos on the freeride runs as well as GPS tracks for downloading at
