Schlick 2000 Ski Resort Austria

Schlick 2000 is a family-oriented ski resort located amongst stunning surrounds above the village of Fulpmes in the Stubai valley (Stubaital) near Innsbruck, Austria. Schlick offers great value skiing and snowboarding, fantastic Austrian mountain dining plus a range of non-ski activities for all the family.

Pros and Cons for Schlick Ski Resort

Pros

  • Wonderful north-facing terrain in a spectacular setting;
  • Snow-sure upper mountain.
  • Great range of piste trails to suit all levels of skier plus fun freeride options for the adventurous;
  • Excellent mountain restaurants, bars & facilities;
  • Efficient lift system;
  • Cheap lift pass;
  • Good public transport access via the STB tram & bus from Innsbruck;
  • Family friendly ski resort with numerous non-ski activities;
  • Free ski bus to superb sledding on Elfer11 at Neustift & skiing at Stubai Glacier.

Cons

  • Relatively small resort;
  • Short skiable vertical off the top lifts.
  • Long flattish connecting trail to the gondola mid station may test snowboarders!
  • Valley trail can get sketchy later in the season (gondola download from mid makes sense at these times).

Pro or Con (depending on your perspective!)

  • Village of Fulpmes is a traditional Austrian town that may be perfect for some & too quiet for others;
  • Can attract a local crowd on a sunny weekend;
  • The size of the resort may be too small for more than a few days visit (unless it pukes of course, then every day is a new powder adventure).

Skiing & Snowboarding Terrain

Schlick 2000 ski resort provides piste skiing options for every level of skier & snowboarder plus fun off-piste & freeride options on a quality 1240m of skiable vertical. Easy access to the ski resort is provided via gondola from Fulpmes. Novices & children can alight at the mid-station and learn to ski at Big Ron’s Kinderland (dubious name, but who are we to judge!) plus adjacent surface tows. Everyone else can head to the top where the bulk of the terrain sits in an expansive north facing bowl.

See the Schlick 2000 ski trail map here.

Schlick has invested heavily in new lift infrastructure on the upper mountain. Subsequent increases in advanced piste options will please many (including the Powderhounds!). The new (ish) 4er & 6er chairs all serve terrain above 1900m elevation. Another 4er chair serves 600m of vertical and most of the piste trails and routes. .

Off-piste potential abounds in the main alpine bowl, plus some tree skiing down lower for the adventurous. Those in search of powder & freeride challenges can do a short hike up to the high alpine bowls to the skier’s left of the Zirmachbahn top station or drop into steeps & trees directly from the top of the gondola. Outside the resort boundary, big steep lines head down towards the valley.

At the end of the day, it is possible to ski the entire 1240m vertical from Sennjoch all the way into the base area above Fulpmes village.

Snow & Weather

The main ski area of Schlick 2000 sits in a shady northerly aspect above 1600m elevation which maintains snow quality throughout the season. Snow making augments mother nature on the main piste & valley trails, guaranteeing skiing from November to April.

Where is Schlick 2000 Austria?

Schlick 2000 ski resort is in the Stubaital (Stubai Valley), part of the Tyrol region, Austria. It is only 17km south of Innsbruck & near the village of Fulpmes. It is easily accessible via public tram & bus. The Stubaitalbahn (STB) tram is a wonderful journey through the valley direct from Innsbruck to the Fulpmes.

Gateway airports for international travellers are Innsbruck (INN) & Munich (MUN). Search & book airport transfers here.

Schlick 2000 Accommodation

At the base of the Schlick 2000 ski resort the town of Fulpmes provides all accommodation options. & further up the valley, Neustift im Stubaital has several excellent hotels. All locations are easily linked to Schlick via the STB tram or free ski bus. Fulpmes is a good base for a true Austrian village experience & is well placed for forays up to the excellent Stubai Glacier.

The world's best ski city of Innsbruck has a wider selection of quality hotels & apartments & is perhaps better suited for those wishing to explore a wider range of local ski areas.

Interlinked Lift Pass with Ski + City Pass

An Olympia Ski World lift pass is for a minimum 2 days and allows unlimited access to all 13 ski & sled resorts. See the Ski+City Pass resorts map here.

Summer Skiing at Stubai Glacier

Nearby Stubai Glacier offers skiing through to the start of summer - generally mid-June, however this can vary depending on snow conditions. Once closed for the remainder of summer, the lifts start turning for skiing again from mid-September to early October at the latest.

Nearby Ski Resorts

Schlick 2000 is intrinsically linked to Innsbruck, which is centre stage for a huge range of Austrian, and even Italian, ski resorts. It is a train transport hub that allows easy travel east to the Zillertal (with HochzillertalMayrhofen & Hintertux Glacier), and further to Kitzbuhel or the recently lift pass linked SkiCircus Saalbach, Kaprun & Zell am See. Perhaps west to Pitztal Glacier, the Oetztal & Sölden, or St Anton and the huge Ski Arlberg. Maybe south to Italy & beautiful Monte Cavallo or the Dolomites resorts like Plose, Gitschberg-Jochtal, Kronplatz & 3 Peaks - not to mention all of the other Dolomiti Superski resorts. Everything is so close.

Other Activities

For anyone visiting Schlick2000, a range of interesting alternative (non-ski) activities are available.

A visit to Stubai Glacier is worth the ride up the Eisgrat gondola and views at the 'Top of Tyrol' lookout. One can undertake a winter walk down the glacier to Gamsgarten via the 'winter wanderweg'. At Eisgrat there is an ice climbing tower to try and the Ice Grotto walk into the bowels of the glacier.

Whilst it may not make sense to many overseas visitors, sledding (or tobogganing) is a great European winter tradition and worth a try, particularly if with a family or large group. Often combined with lunch, dinner or drinks at a mountain hut, sled runs also run at night under illumination.

At Schlick there is a 3km rodelbahn (sled run). Further up the Stubai valley, Elfer11 mountain rises above the village of Neustift and has 3 long sled runs, 2 of which are over 8km long. Numerous other sled runs are in the valley but need to be accessed by foot. All lifts are covered by the Ski+City Pass.

More activities at Schlick2000 and the Stubaital include a variety of winter walking trails to alpine hüttes, plus paragliding and a wealth of wellness centres & day spas. The Austrians (and visitors to Austria) do love a good day spa!

Review

The Powderhounds reviewed Schlick in 2019 & found it to be the sort of ski resort that we adore. Not huge, but great snow, fun terrain, low crowds, awesome restaurants & grand surrounds.
