From the ski resort via Pfaffenjoch it tooks 2 hours up. An ascent by feets depends on the snow conditions. If there is a lot of fresh snow it would be mostly unpossible. If the snow is blown and frozen it would be okay. Ask the guides of Stubai-valley in Neustift. By the way, Stubai-valley is one of the coldest areas in the Alps, be prepared. In winter are -25 to -30 degree celsius in a height of 3000m normal. Notice that the glacier to the north of Zuckerhuetl is very dangerous in winter.

If it will be a good winter, you can dig a snow hole everywhere you want. What do you like more? High alpine mountains, i.e. Glockner area, stubai, oetztal, pitztal - or smaller mountains with forests and much snow, i.e. Wilder Kaiser, Karwendel or Kitzbuehl. But without ski or snow shoes it will be hard to reach lonely areas.

Check out Pitztal: you can leave the ski resort at Mittelbergjoch. You can dig a hole on Taschach-glacier and make some easy high altidude mountains. Wildspitze, Hinterer Brochkogel or Petersenspitze. This glacier is very friendly in the upper part.

As I said, you can dig a snow hole everywhere. Lechtal ist very good. It is not very high, but it has a lot of snow every year. Good destination. But there are not very high mountains. If you want to do a peak above 3000 meters you have to go to the mountains at the main ridge of the Alps in the South.

Learning to ski is nooooooo problems. Sometimes I think there are billions of ski-guides in Austria.

The low budget way to learn skiing: skis with thw front towards the valley and "Jalla!"

while sitting in a hotel room and surfing with my mobile phone on the internet, I am not able to support you more informations about Lechtal, sorry ;-)

I hope you have a good sleeping bag!
