Family ski holiday in the Stubai Valley
Way up high, massive and mega active: family ski holidays in the Stubai Valley are the purest snow fun! Ultimate ski and snowboarding fun for cool kids on the Stubai Glacier – Austria’s largest glacier ski area – and in the Stubai Valley’s other three ski resorts. Away from the downhill slopes, cross-country ski runs, winter walking trails, ice rinks and toboggan runs let families enjoy laid-back excursions. Back at your Happy Stubai family hotel, young guests get to go full throttle in the pool, or the playroom where they can play table football, table tennis and darts.
The Neustift Ski School in the Stubai Valley lends support on the piste. In addition to classic downhill and cross-country ski lessons for beginners and advanced students, the school also teaches the latest extreme and adventure sports.

BIG Family Stubai Glacier
In the Stubai Glacier’s kaleidoscopic snow world by the Gamsgarten cable car’s upper terminus, children are offered plenty of fun activities, and they get to meet B.Big and Mini B! The BIG Family Children’s and Youth Camp is a fun place where kids learn to ski with the help of beginners’ slopes, a rope tow and 4 magic carpets, the BIG Family Slalom, BIG Family Fun slope and a timed race slope. Benefit from: free ski passes for children under 10 accompanied by a paying adult; Kinderland BIG Family; a children’s restaurant with indoor play tower; childcare for children aged 3 and older; and the ice cave at the Stubai Glacier with fun puzzle hunt in the perpetual ice.
Gentle winter fun
Take it slow: experience the special charm of winter on over 80km of winter walking paths and allow the frozen waterfalls, snow-capped pines and sparkling ice crystals along the way to work their magic on you. Then have a go at ice skating at one of the many rinks in the region. When the weather is right, two beautiful natural ice rinks invite you to pirouette in Schönberg and Mieders. The Stubai Valley also boasts 12 natural toboggan runs with a total length of 43km. These were awarded the Tiroler Naturrodelbahn hallmark of excellence, and make the region not only the largest tobogganing arena in Tyrol but also one of the most varied.
Night tobogganing is a particularly fun family activity, which you can pursue on four lit runs in the Stubai Valley.
Cool down and freshen up
After a day of family fun by the tonne, return to the Happy Stubai family hotel. Everyone needs a break after mountain adventures, which is why there are relaxing areas to suit everyone! From the heated outdoor pool to happy steam room, from the warming infrared cabin to the Stubai sauna, chill out, relax and feel happy!
Kids can socialise with their peers in the playroom where they can play table football, table tennis and darts.
