Nordkette skiing area - Innsbruck

Within 20 minutes only, the Nordkettenbahnen lift facilities take you from the city centre of Innsbruck to the Nordkette skiing area.

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

Amazing - from the centre of Innsbruck you reach the Nordkette skiing area within 20 minutes only! The only Incity-Snowpark worldwide is the Nordkette Skylinepark on Mt. Seegrube. Many snowboarders and freeskiers exercise here at 1,905 m a.s.l. for various contests. An unforgettable view on Innsbruck, the Alpine City, is included! Moreover at Mt. Seegrube, there is the Kids Arena with a magic carpet, childcare, snow hills and exercising slopes.

The Hafelekar funicular transports you farther up, to the Hafelekar, a panoramic mountain that offers a great view on the Karwendel mountain chain. There is the Hafelekarrinne channel, one of the steepest ski routes of Europe (70% gradient). The Nordkette is by the way also a place where people dance and party: high above the roofs of Innsbruck, “Cloud9″ is the largest snow igloo event arena and the highest located club of the Alps. The Nordkette skiing area belongs with eight other skiing areas in the surroundings of Innsbruck to the ski carousel Olympia World Innsbruck!
