Neustift is a resort in the Stubaital Valley popular due to the largest Austrian glacier where season lasts all the year round.
The lift line leads from the lower Mutterbergalm station to the skiing zone with total area of 12 sq. km. Experienced skiers start from Eis Joch pass. The most difficult trail of those starting at the Stubai glacier is Fernau Mauer (4000 m, elevation change - 700m). Wilde Grube (10 000 m, elevation change - 1500 m) is the longest, and in some areas substantially difficult trail.
Snowboarders gladly go to the Stubaital Valley: it has 4 fun parks, one of them on the glacier.
Only hotels located at the lower lift station can be reached when going down from the glacier. But tourists usually settle in different villages of the area, such as Schonberg and Mieders. The best place for beginners and intermediate skiers is Serles area (1650 m). Telfes and Fulpmes are rather for more experienced skiers. Professional sportsmen including national teams of various countries train themselves above Fulpmes in Schlicker Alm area (1600 - 2260 m). Here, unlike in the glacier area, snow cover is very safe even in the very beginning of the winter. The most difficult trail is Sennjoch – Zirmach (2000 m, elevation change 300 m).
Elfer ski area is the closest to Neustift boardinghouses; the lower section of the trail leading to the valley is considered to be the most difficult (3000 m, elevation change 500 m).
Neustift (3800 inhabitants) has all that is needed for proper rest: large sport center with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, sauna, bowling alley. There are 11 toboggan runs with the total length of 63 km and 120 km of marked walking paths. Numerous bars, discos, and restaurants offer opportunities for après-ski entertainment. There are two panoramic restaurants in the mountains: Eisgrat (2900m) and Gamsgarten (2620 m). Shops and solar terraces are located near them.
