In the Tux Alps, high above the rooftops of Innsbruck, there is the Olympic Skiing Area Patscherkofel.
The village of Igls, which belongs to the Alpine City of Innsbruck, was venue for Olympic downhill races in male alpine skiing in 1964 and 1976. Still today, women dispute World Cup races - Downhill and super-G - on Mt. Patscherkofel, the local mountain. Ski stars such as Franz Klammer, Hermann Maier, Renate Götschl and Michaela Dorfmeister were here on the podium.
The almost 2,000 m high peak is easily identifiable by its round top and the transmission mast. There are 18 km of ski slopes, including the race track at the Ochsenhang Lift, new World Cup Slope, and the slopes at Heiligwasserwiese, where the popular nighttime skiing is offered.
The Innsbruck Patscherkofel Snow Park at 1,950 m a.s.l., which was reshaped some years ago, is the meeting point of the boarders. 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.
