SUMMER IN THE STUBAI VALLEY
THE SIEBENSCHLÄFER [DORMOUSE] …
is a very active animal. In the summer, it can be found in the Stubaital, especially in unforgettable NATURAL SETTINGS or on the numerous peaks. It also likes to frequent the impressive legs of the WILD WATER TRAIL or can be seen on one of the many BIKE PATHS.
Depending on weather conditions and endurance, the dormouse may hunt for a cosy place to stop in a rustic cabin on its PLEASURE SEEKING ROUTE. One of its favourite places to stop is at our INNSBRUCKER HÜTTE. There, it eats delicious dumplings and tempting Kaiserschmarren [local speciality with sugared pancakes]. Occasionally, the food is complemented by savoury cheese or bacon.
If it wants to be more comfortable, the dormouse uses one of the MOUNTAIN RAILWAYS, which it uses with the STUBAI SUPER CARD free-of-charge for the ascent and descent.

WINTER IN THE STUBAI VALLEY
… the dormouse was given its name because of its seven-month-long winter sleep however, it is mainly active in the winter.
While it can be found SKIING at or FREERIDING during the day in the largest ski area in Austria, the STUBAIER GLACIER,
you even can watch the nocturnal animal at late hours during NIGHT TOBOGGANING on one of the 12 STUBAIER TOBOGGAN RUNS.
Before its winter sleep, the dormouse usually cuts a track in the CROSS-COUNTRY SKI TRAILS before he takes care of his winter fat.
Near many of the places to stop in the Stubaital, the dormouse frequently seeks a frost-free hut after its WINTER HIKE.
Just how long it stays in the retreat can vary depending on the weather and the amount of Stubaier delicacies.
