Winter Wonderland – Stubai Glacier, Austria

February 10, 2017 48 Comments

When I arrived Tyrol, it was just before sun down. All the little wood lodges had already lite up, neatly packed along the bottom of the Alps, time froze for a moment and I thought I walked into a fairy tale, especially after I checked in one of those cute little wood ledges and welcomed by the warm fire place. Life never felt so magical.

What completely swept my feet away was when I took the gondola to the top of the Stubai Glacier, which has an altitude about 3200m. As I was ascending in the air with the gondola, I couldn’t help not to admire the view after I was raising above all the clouds.

Ski trip in Austria is so different from my usual weekend trips in Australia, Lake Tahoe, or the week-long ski trip in Niseko, Japan. The slopes here are a lot longer. From the base station to the top of the glacier, it takes at several rides and at least 45 minutes in the gondola. The snow here are so powdery and fresh, it snows almost every single night. Most people are here for at least a whole week and take their day slow on the slopes. A typical day on the slope starts around 10am and people start drinking around 3pm. The slopes are often empty by 4pm, since the sun sets very early on the Alps in Europe. Apres Ski is bigger than the ski activity itself on the slopes. Raving in Ski boots (although snowboarding boots are easier to dance than the ski boots, but it was still quite a challenge) and clothing, drinking Austrian shots were definitely new to me. Since we started drinking at 3.30pm, to be precise, I was drunk by 5pm, giving the amount of the shots I had during the first hour.

Accommodations

Most of the accommodations in the area are half boards, which means they provide breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner. I stayed in a small town in Tyrol called Stacker, which is about 30 mins bus ride to the base station of the gondola. There is one accommodation next to the base station, however, there is really nothing else nearby but that hotel. If you want a social life, definitely stay in the town!

    You always have the most wonderful shots 🙂 I can’t think of a better way to describe this place than a Winter wonderland! Those shots from on the gondola above the clouds really are magical. Also, I think your outfits just prove that you are the queen of winter fashion- I especially like the long camel coat

    First thing I did when I saw this post is immediately stalk those leather pants you have on!! Damn, so good. Austria is such a beautiful place though I have yet to visit, it has been on my travel list for a long time, I love visiting sites that aren’t overly touristy and populated and this winter wonderland would be a dream!!

    You captured this snowy winter wonderland so beautifully! The fluffy white snow covering the streets is so magical. I love your outfit too! That style of camel coat has been on the top of my list forever, but the problem is, LA never gets too hot. I really want one though. Also, I have the same Zara moto pants! They look so good on you!

And I am in love with both of your outfits, so classy and chic. Both of your jackets are such perfect winter pieces. I can’t wait to visit Austria one day. Thanks for sharing this post.

    Wow, this place looks super amazing, I would love to go there someday! I’ve only been skiing in New Zealand and Korea and I would love to go skiing in Europe one day, I am so jealous of you right now 🙁

    Both your outfits in this blog are so chic, I need the fur coat so badly! The white stands out so much when you match it with leather pants x

      Winter is almost over, maybe it’s time to start shopping for spring outfits =P

      I still haven’t been to NZ yet. Given that I’m Australia, I’m kind of ashamed to say that I still haven’t been to NZ yet. I do have that on top of my list tho! heard skiing there is quite amazing too.

      Thanks babe! hahaha… i guess any outfits would pop nicely with a white and clean snowy backdrop =)

    Seems like you’ve had the ultimate skiing experience (and after ski experience as well!) in Austria and I must say I agree that our skiing culture here in Europe is somewhat different to what you’re used to! Next time you want to experience good skiing and something really different (including northern lights) come skiing to Sweden! 🙂

      Thanks Thomas! But Sweden is too expensive!!! a good friend of mine lives in Sweden and been asking me to visit the country, but not sure if i can afford it to stay there for long!!! Skiing in Sweden probably will cost double of what I have paid in Austria =P Having that said, I do want to go there to see the northern lights one day!

    I’ve never been to Austria before, but this place looks absolutely wonderful and, yes, magical! All the surrounding, the Landschaft, horses, the little tiny village – everything filled with magic. I’d be delighted to visit this place and enjoy this pure beauty. Thanks for sharing this lovely post!

      I love Austria so much too! I was there last year during the summer and now back again for the winter wonderland. Austria looks so different in summer and winter! It’s a truly amazing country with very interesting landscapes. Would love to go back there again sometime soon.

    Wow! This is absolutely incredible and I have to say you look so chic! I would look like the kid from A Christmas Story in these temps! I’m not really all that great at any type of cold weather dressing! The view is stunning and I love seeing all the natural beauty of this land!

      I love the natural beauty land too! I would like to travel more and see more of the natural landscapes instead of big cities for 2017 🙂 Hopefully i can schedule many trips in on top of my working life!

    Seriously all this snow is just so incredible to me being from Southern California. Such a winter wonderland and everything I would imagine it to look like. A true fairytale of a place. You look so chic and edgy in your leather moto pants which I am swooning over. I love the camel coat as well. I definitely need to see Austria once in my life and want to go visit in the winter. Thanks for sharing these photos! xoxo, Christine

      Thanks Christine. I love winter wonderland but when I stay somewhere cold for too long, I crave for the warmer weathers. I guess the grass is always greener on the other side =P

    Wow this sounds incredible… what a way to spend your time relaxing! Honestly I’ve never really been to a ski resort but i wanted wanted to experience it for myself. We have one here in Toronto but doesn’t look nearly as beautiful as this one!! That view is so incredible, and hehe the horses!!! Also your outfit looking on point! I hate dressing for the winter because I end up just bundling up instead of trying to look fashionable but you are totally inspiring me to change that haha. Last note, omg that YSL!! I’ve been looking at the one with the golden tassel and I feel like your totally making me want to buy it now!!!
