Acro flights in the Stubai Valley, 20 minutes drive from Innsbruck in Austria.

The Stubai Valley is well known from it's protected micro-climate. Due to its close proximity to the main alpine chains it mostly stays protected from föhn (gusty southerly winds) fairly long, even when in nearby Innsbruck it is already blowing stormy.

1. The best site in the valley is Kreuzjock (Schlick2000) above Fulpmes and accessible quickly by cable car. The startplace is facing South-Eash and therefore provides great conditions to launch till the early afternoon even in wintertime. Thermal activity here may start as soon as January-February.

2. The second take-off site is the Elfer, another ski-resort further south above Neustift in Stubai. The available altitude for acro maneuvers here is 1-200 meters lower than from Kreuzjoch.
