South of Innsbruck stretches the Stubaï range, bristling with 3000m summits, making a ski tourer's paradise. Here, skiing is a way of life and the chain boasts mountain huts that resemble hotels: you'll return from a testing stage or a summit to the siren song of comfort. Despite its modest altitude compared to the Alps, Stubaï is a cold range with a mountainscape that's the real deal. It's common to find snow at 1000m in April. We alternate hut-to-hut traverses from with out-and-back stages. This lets us ascend summits tailor-made for ski touring with light packs. This is an essential range for all mountaineers who love ski touring.
