Very beautiful glacier. The nature is incredible and so is the skiing area. The runs are not so difficult what is the main problem of the glacier areas but the slopes are very bright and most of them are red but you won´t find many black ones. So a great opportunity for families and beginners. But also the experts will find a lot of freeride space so they won´t get bored. I mainly go to the glacier beside the main season that means in October or even in June where you still have good conditions to start or to end a season. The last times they also had a good park up on the mountain.
The area is easy to reach from Innsbruck. There are several buses running. So it might be possible to live in Innsbruck and go for skiing into the Stubaital. In the valley itself there are some more skiing areas like the Schlick 2000 and the 11er Lifte. So you can also change to different areas if you stay for loner time in this valley. Night life direct at the glacier station is worse but the hotels are also not directly located at the valley station so therefore you have different towns to go for some drinks after skiing. If you want to party hard you have to go to Innsbruck where you can celebrate all the night.
