The face is already burning in the sun, while the feet are still ankle-deep in slush - yes, that's spring in Tyrol! For many, this is actually the most beautiful time of the ski season, when we can swap the thick ski jackets for sweaters and sunglasses. Perfect timing for the SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck. With it you not only get the nice sun hours in 13 ski destinations. 22 sights and attractions open the door to you with this pass. Want more inspiration? We have ten insider tips for your next sunny trip in the SKI-plus-CITY region.

1. The most beautiful sun terraces in Innsbruck

Let's start in the city. The special thing about Innsbruck is of course its location. Everywhere you look, the impressive mountain peaks tower above the rooftops. The catch: even on nice days, it's hard to catch direct sunlight here. The Marktbar am Inn is not only "fresh, cheeky and regional," but also perfectly situated. Between the old town and the Inn, you can let the sun shine on your pelt almost all day long while enjoying snacks and drinks. Things are a bit more relaxed at 360°: with soft electronic sounds and sparkling cocktails, the city is literally at your feet. The 360° is a completely glazed traffic circle on the top floor of the Rathaus Galerien. From there you not only have an amazing view of the city, but you can also observe exactly how spring slowly conquers the mountain slopes.

2. Bathing in the quarry pond

Actually, such pictures are only known from the far north, but also in Innsbruck there are a few hardy people who jump into the quarry pond at the first rays of sunshine. In the winter months, the area is open to the public and offers not only ice water but also a pretty cool playground for young and old children. Too much action? Then treat yourself to a few rays of sunshine, delicious food and cool drinks at the Deck 47 directly on the lakeshore.

3. Wow effect on Tirol Panorama

Directly at the foot of the striking Bergisel ski jump lies the Tirol Panorama mit dem Kaiserjägermuseum. An impressive panoramic view awaits you here, both outdoors and indoors: The giant circular painting shows the third battle at the Bergisel in 1809 on more than 1,000 square meters of screen. In addition, Tyrolean cultural history is staged in a modern way on several levels. Admission to the sights at the Bergisel is free with the SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck. Plan a little more time for your trip here, because you shouldn't miss the almost 2.2-kilometer-long circular hiking trail if the weather is good.

4. Dancing above the clouds

On the Nordkette right next to the station Seegrube we welcome spring dancing. The Cloud 9 is not only Innsbruck's highest sun terrace, but also occasionally turns into the highest dance floor. A drink in the hand, good sound in the ear and warming light in the face - we feel a bit closer to the sun. By the way, the sunset from up here is also an absolute must-see. The SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck makes it possible.

5. „Gemma figln?“

Another spring highlight at Nordkette is the Figln - short for "Firngleiten." Here you race through the soft sulz snow or firn with short, ski-like boards. All you need are ankle-high hiking boots, the Figl and waterproof clothing. Falling is somehow part of this sport. And who invented it? The people of Innsbruck. More precisely, mountain enthusiast Emo Johann Heinrich, who even patented the Figl in the middle of the 20th century.

6. Sun salutation at the Patscherkofel

Opposite Nordkette is the second local mountain of Innsbruck, the Patscherkofel. In spring, real sun worshippers flock here every Friday and Sunday for Winter Mountain Yoga. In front of the panorama window with view of the mountains the sun salutation gets nevertheless immediately a more intensive meaning - for registration with Moni is asked (by Whatsapp or SMS to +43 699 180 13000 or by Mail to moni@soulinmotion.at). The SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck understands itself as ticket for the mountain and valley journeys.

7. Sunset Sessions at the Kofel

And because we just can't get enough of the sun here in spring, the Patscherkofel lift will be extending its skiing operation until 6 p.m. every Thursday from the end of February. Up in the "Kofel" still the last beer zischen and then glide under a bright pink sky into the valley - nice.

8. Stubai instead of Dubai

The Stubai Zoo is not a wild animal park, but it gets wild here anyway. On April 1, the snowpark on the Stubai Glacier rings in the Spring Sessions and offers the perfect set-up and cool events for every freestyle riding level. And even watching is worth it, because the XL-Pro Line attracts the who's who of the scene every year. You're bound to see a gold medal winner or two. Fortunately, the ski resorts in the Stubaital are also among the 13 destinations of the SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck.

9. Family business with a view

The Fronebenalm in the ski area proves that wonderful weather, a one-a-panorama and damn good food simply belong together Schlick 2000. If you stop here at lunchtime, you run the risk of getting bogged down until the evening. Don't worry, you don't have to catch any lifts from here. The alpine pasture is located directly in the valley run and gets even the last spark of sun that the Schlick has to offer.

10. Flown out

Last but not least, of course, we don't want to deprive you of „die Lizum“. It shares a ridge with Schlick 2000, which sometimes attracts freeriders to throw themselves into the steep powder gullies. In spring, on the other hand, colorful events such as the "Ugly Skiing Day" or "Cash for Tricks" attract visitors to Axamer Lizum. If the weather is nice, you should definitely secure a spot at the Dohlennest secure. That's when the "rustic hut of the Lizum" starts up its own barbecue - meal time!
