The ski areas in the Innsbruck ski region
No less than 9 ski resorts around the city of Innsbruck make the hearts of passionate skiers and snowboarders beat faster! Here you can find out about the highlights of the respective ski areas:
The Patscherkofel ski area, located in the south of Innsbruck, delights with 18 km of pistes, a Kids Park and a Snowpark - ideal conditions for families with children as well as passionate freestylers. And for those who prefer to stay off the slopes, there are also numerous ski tours and a panoramic snowshoe route.
Wobbling down the slopes in a small and unspoilt ski area - that's possible in the Glungezer ski area. With 22 km of pistes, 40 km of cross-country trails, fantastic winter hiking trails and fun toboggan runs, winter fun in the glistening snow is guaranteed!
A visit to the Muttereralm ski area is particularly suitable for a ski trip with children. With 16 km of pistes, first line skiing, Kinderland and family-friendly prices, a day on the slopes together is especially fun!
As a former venue for the Alpine skiing competitions at the Olympic Games, the skiing area in the greater Innsbruck area is now extremely popular with all amateur skiers, snowboarders as well as skiing students. Thanks to its altitude of 2,100 metres, the Axamer Lizum is considered a snow-sure ski area in Tyrol. You can expect 40 km of slopes, a large snow park, specials such as Ladies Day, First Line or a photo shoot in the park.
Oberperfuss - Rangger Köpfl
In the Oberperfuss - Rangger Köpfl ski area, which extends to the summit of the mountain of the same name, 17 kilometres of pistes of all levels of difficulty invite you to enjoy skiing. There is also a fun park, a toboggan run and a high-altitude hiking trail. And those who prefer to prove their skills on skis at night can go night skiing on Rangger Köpfl.
Nordkette with Seegrube & Hafelekar
The Nordkette ski area with Seegrube and Hafelekar is almost a stone's throw from the centre of Innsbruck. Enter a ski area with 15 km of pistes, snow park and children's land and experience pure skiing pleasure high above the roofs of Innsbruck. While the descent is usually rather leisurely, adventurous skiers dare to try the ski route with a 70 percent gradient in the Skylinepark. Afterwards, celebrate in the Cloud 9 Igloo Bar with its inviting sun terrace or relax and enjoy the view with a drink.
Austria's highest ski resort with its snow-assured skiing area offers varied fun on 44 km of slopes - with a bit of luck even until the beginning of May. The Kühtai ski area is particularly family-friendly with its magic carpet, baby lift and more. Snowboarders also get their money's worth in the fun park and ski tourers in the deep snow. And those who prefer to conquer the slopes at night can take advantage of the night skiing offer.
Only a 15-minute drive from Innsbruck, the small but versatile Schlick 2000 ski area in the Stubaital welcomes you. With a total of 25 kilometres of slopes, a fun park, a speed run and a children's area, it guarantees skiing fun for everyone. And you can also experience a lot off the slopes: In addition to many refreshment stops, there is a cross-country ski trail, an illuminated natural toboggan run and many more highlights.
Nowhere is skiing in Tyrol possible for longer than on the Stubai Glacier, the largest glacier ski area in Austria. Due to its altitude of up to 3,210 metres, skiing is possible from mid/end September to the end of June. An unbelievable 110 km of pistes of all levels of difficulty delight the skier's heart. And that is by far not all that the Stubai Glacier ski area has to offer. With a snow park, skating track, race track, children's area, Miniland, comfort piste for families and 50+ guests, winter hiking trail, ice climbing tower and flying fox, no wishes are left unfulfilled.
