Flying to Innsbruck next week

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Just booked flights to Innsbruck for a midweek trip next week, skiing in the day on Tue, Wed, Thu and working remotely the rest of the time.

Where's gonna be good? My ideal for this trip would be having enough steep pistes to really push my technique, but I'm not really that fussy (or that good Shocked)*

I'm looking at Sölden hoping more will open there, also tempted because the 3-day lift pass will cover me for Obergurgl which opens this thursday and between the two that's loads of terrain.

I'm guessing Hintertux would be a good option as it's a steep glacier?

@skeksis, solden plus obergurgl is a bigger area together than Hintertux. Solden has more open than Hintertux as of today. Not much steep in Obergurgl and the glaciers at Solden are decent but not in my opinion as good as Hintertux. However the black on the Rettenbach is pretty steep and you will get a better feeling of travel over the area (plus Obergurgl).

Hintertux has some better and more varied terrain (more steep based on what is currently open) but if you want km then given the greater km on offer head for the Otztal.

Solden Town is a bit weird this time of year (just a main road - no life). But if you don’t care then that won’t matter.

BTW both are fantastic for 3 days!

Surely Stubai Glacier - being so close to Innsbruck - could be worth a look Puzzled

None of the Austrian glaciers are very steep - but I've always found Stubai as good as anywhere for extent of terrain, decent lift system and general user- friendliness.

I just noticed that Sölden will likely have a lot more open than it does right now, as they open the main body of the resort (the "winter ski area") this thursday according to https://www.soelden.com/urlaub/EN/SD/WI/urlaubsplanung/skigebiet/skipasspreise/saisonzeiten/index.html
