Glungezer skiing area - Innsbruck

One of the longest ski slopes of Tyrol and cosy refuges can be enjoyed in the Glungezer skiing area in Tulfes near Innsbruck.

The Glungezer, a 2,677 m high peak in the Tux Alps, is located only 12 km away from Innsbruck. The Glungezerbahn cable car takes you from the village of Tulfes (992 m a.s.l.) into the skiing area with its 23 km of well groomed ski slopes in sunny location and a great view on the Inntal valley and the Nordkette mountain chain. Overall, there are seven available lift facilities, among them also the new cable car taking you to the Halsmarter intermediate station.

The Glungezer skiing area convinces with its naturalness, furthermore also one of the longest slopes throughout Tyrol can be found here (15 km). Snowboarder, however, can look forward to the Jib-Park Glungezer - its elements are being reshaped again and again during the winter season. By the way: the Glungezer skiing area is also part of the Olympia SkiWorld Innsbruck, a ski carousel made up of 9 skiing areas in the surroundings of the Alpine City!

A highlight in the skiing area is the “Klumpern” on the ski exercise slope, using a traditional wooden sled with one runner only. It is called “Rennböckl” in Tyrolean dialect. A further highlight is the Glungezer Igloo village at 2,600 m a.s.l. with 10 igloos with the possibility of overnight accomodation and an unforgettable view on 500 surrounding peaks. The Igloo village can be reached with touring skis or snow-shoes via the Schartenkogel mountain.
