Fulpmes ski resort guide & reviews Ski area, apres-ski, things to see & do in Fulpmes
Fulpmes is just 30 minutes drive from Innsbruck sitting in the heart of the Stubai valley just over the Brenner pass on the Italian border. Stubai punches well above its weight when it comes to the skiing and apres-ski. Relaxed and fun is how we would describe it.
Fulpmes can be as lively or as relaxing as you want to make it with several good bars and restaurants to relax in. Probably the best way to describe the après-ski is typical Austrian with Tyrolean style "knees up" evenings which people tend to enjoy.
