Patscherkofel skiing area - Innsbruck

Skiing in the Tux Alps above the rooftops of Innsbruck is possible in the Olympic skiing area Patscherkofel.

The skiing area Patscherkofel is located in Igls, which belongs to the Alpine City of Innsbruck and is only 6.5 km away from its centre. In fact, in 1964 and 1976 Mt. Patscherkofel was venue for Olympic downhill races in male alpine skiing, and women still dispute World Cup races - Downhill and super-G - in this skiing area. The mountain is easily identifiable by its round top and the transmission mast - thanks to ski legends like Franz Klammer, Hermann Maier, Renate Götschl and Michaela Dorfmeister, it is steeped in history!

7 lift facilities take you up the mountain, including a 10-seater monocable ropeway capable of carrying 2,600 people per hour. The Patscherkofel skiing area offers 18 km of well-groomed ski slopes - experts can accept the challenge to ski down the Olympic slopes such as the racetrack at the Ochsenhang lift and the slopes 3-4 at Heiligwasserwiese as well as the new World Cup slope. Beginners, however, can put up with plain slopes, assisted by three local ski schools. Popular is above all night-time skiing at Heiligwasserwiese which is offered three times a week.

A true paradise for snowboarders can be found at the Innsbruck Patscherkofel Snow Park at 1,950 m a.s.l. which was reshaped in 2017. Kids, however, can look forward to the children's park at the Olympiaexpress valley station and the ice skating ground at the valley station in Igls. The Snow Card Tyrol (more than 90 skiing areas in Tyrol), the Freizeitticket Tyrol (32 skiing areas and other leisure time facilities in Tyrol) and the SKI plus CITY Pass (13 skiing areas around Innsbruck and the Stubaital valley, formerly known as Olympia SkiWorld Innsbruck) are valid in this skiing area.
