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. In fact, in 1964 and 1976 Mt Patscherkofel has been venue for Olympic downhill races in male alpine skiing, and women still dispute World Cup races - Downhill and super-G - on the Patscherkofel. Thanks to ski legends like Franz Klammer, Hermann Maier, Renate Götschl and Michaela Dorfmeister, this mountain is steeped in history!

The skiing area Patscherkofel 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. New in the winter season 2017/2018 is the 10-seater monocable ropeway capable of carrying 2,600 people an hour.

Moreover the skiing area is suitable for family holidays. While your children merrily amuse themselves in the children’s park at the Olympiaexpress valley station, you can enjoy skiing on the well-groomed slopes. For snowboarders, there is the Patscherkofel snow park on 1,950 m asl. Enough skiing? At the valley station in Igls, there is also an ice skating ground, which is a welcome change in your winter holidays. By the way: the skiing area is part of the Olympia SkiWorld Innsbruck, a ski carousel made up of 9 skiing areas.
