The Stubai High Trail is a ‘black’ (i.e. difficult) mountain trail that runs exclusively through alpine and high alpine terrain. Some sections are secured with steel cables and supports. The trail is laid out in such a way that it does not touch or cross any glaciers, but especially at the start of the season, steep snow fields are to be expected. Always stay up to date on the current weather conditions and keep them in mind when you plan your hike. Don't forget that the weather in the mountains can turn bad very suddenly. Remember that an overly heavy rucksack can seriously affect your enjoyment of the hike and your sureness of foot, and can therefore become a safety risk.
In order to be able to estimate which of the hiking trails and tours are feasible, the mountain trail classification provides an initial overview of the degree of difficulty of the hiking trails and tours.
|Technical difficulty||Requirements of the hiker|
|Hiking trail||general accessible walking route wide facility with low gradients/slopes||No mountain experience and mountain equipment necessary|
|Red mountain track||moderately difficult, mainly narrow, often steep short, secured walking and climbing passages possible||Alpine experience necessary appropriate physical condition sure-footed minimum mountain equipment|
|Black mountain track||difficult, narrow, almost entirely very steep, often exposed long, secured climbing passages||Good alpine experience Good physical condition Absolutely sure-footed and free from giddiness Appropriate mountain equipment|
|High mountain range - alpine route||very difficult high-alpine terrain, partly unmarked and exposed paths unsecured walking and climbing passages||absolute surefootedness, no fear of heights, strong physical condition appropriate mountain equipment excellent orientation skills|
Note: In adverse conditions (snow, storm, fog, etc.) the hiking trails and tours become considerably more challenging or impassable!

☎ 140: mountain rescue – alpine emergency call
☎ 112: European emergency call (works with every mobile phone and with every available provider)
Without a mobile network or in a location with no reception, no emergency call is possible. Change your position and continuously dial 112.
Euro emergency call: access to every available mobile network if you type 112 instead of the pin code after switching on the phone or use the SOS emergency call feature.
Smartphone users can install the new emergency app of the Tyrolean mountain rescue. This app assists with sending an emergency call and at the same time transmits the current position.
