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 city of Innsbruck and is only 6.5 km away from the city 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!

Eight lift facilities take you up the mountain, including a 10-seater monocable ropeway capable of carrying 2,600 people an 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.

Moreover the skiing area is suitable for family holidays - at the Olympiaexpress valley station there’s a children’s park, whereas at the valley station in Igls there is an ice skating ground. A true paradise for snowboarders, however, can be found at the Snowpark Innsbruck Patscherkofel at 1,950 m a.s.l. The skiing area is part of the Olympia SkiWorld Innsbruck ski carousel!
