summer skiing in the Stibai area

am planning a trip to Austria (Tirol area) next June to show 13 yr. old grandson his great great grandparents village. Want to ski one or two days. Will ski equipment be readily available to rent? Is the Stubai area the best area for summer skiing or do we need to consider the area near Salzburg? Have previouslt stayed in Seefeld and would love to base ourselves there.

if the slopes are open, then skiing equipment will be available. however, the slopes do close down for some time, so you will need to go to the stubai glacier website to find out when it is open or closed. i doubt that they will have 2015 dates yet. there is no glacier skiing close to salzburg, but i think that hintertux is the only glacier in austria that is guaranteed to be open 365 days, provided conditions allow

The Stubai does not have the best history for openings and excellent snow situations.

The Hintertux Glacier at the end of the Zillertal valley is well known to skiers- open year round and is not that far from Seefeld to make a nice day trip.

Rental shops etc. at the lift base.

www.zillertal.at

example today - 11 lifts open at Hintertux.
