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.
