Nordkette Skiing Area - Innsbruck

Within 20 minutes only, the Nordkettenbahnen lifts take you from the city centre of Innsbruck to the Nordkette Skiing Area

Visiting the Christmas Market at the Golden Roof in Innsbruck before you go skiing, or going shopping in the centre before you start racing down the ski runs - a dream that comes true. The Nordkette Skiing Area on the Seegrube and Hafelekar mountains is not only popular with those who love skiing and the sun, but also an area that is famous beyond borders with snowboarders.

The only Incity Snow Park worldwide is the Nordkette Skyline Park on Mt. Seegrube, called "Gruban" in dialect. There's also the Freestyle Heaven. Snowboarders and freeskiers exercise here for various contests. Most of the ski slopes are medium difficult, for families, however, there is the Kids Arena on Mt. Seegrube with a magic carpet, a snow hill and exercising slopes.

Trained freeriders will find their adrenaline-kick on the descent through the "Karrinne". This Hafelekarrinne channel is one of the steepest ski routes of Europe with an impressive 70% gradient. Relax awaits you then on the deckchairs at 2,000 m a.s.l. with view on Innsbruck, where the Seegrube by DoN Restaurant can be found, Innsbruck's highest located sun terrace. By the way, the SKI plus CITY Pass Innsbruck Stubai is valid in the Nordkette Skiing Area, which allows you the use of 13 skiing areas in the Stubaital valley and the surroundings of Innsbruck.
