Patscherkofel Skiing Area - Innsbruck

In the Tux Alps, high above the rooftops of Innsbruck, there is the Olympic Skiing Area Patscherkofel

Igls, a district of Innsbruck, was venue for Olympic downhill races in male alpine skiing in 1964 and 1976. More precisely it is Mt. Patscherkofel, where in the last decades ski stars such as Franz Klammer, Hermann Maier, Renate Götschl and Michaela Dorfmeister have been on the podium. Still today, women dispute World Cup races - a downhill and a super-G race - on Mt. Patscherkofel.

The almost 2,000 m high peak of Mt. Patscherkofel is easily identifiable by its round top and the transmission mast. Thanks to the free ski bus service (with the Welcome Card) it is also easily reachable. From Igls, the barrier-free Patscherkofel Cable Car with free Wlan access takes you to the top. Among the 18 km of slopes there are the race track at the Ochsenhang Lift, the new World Cup Slope and the slopes at Heiligwasserwiese, where the popular nighttime skiing is offered.

Beginners meet on the flat practice slopes of the Patscherkofel Skiing Area, boarders at the Innsbruck Patscherkofel Snow Park at 1,950 m a.s.l. Kids, however, can look forward to the Kofele's Kids Park and the ice skating ground at the valley station in Igls. A sledge run, signposted ski tours and the panorama snowshoe route complete the active offer on Innsbruck's local mountain. As in other 12 skiing areas, the SKI plus CITY Pass between the Stubaital and Innsbruck is valid here.
