Patscherkofel is a skiing paradise just south of Innsbruck and is easily recognisable by its rounded peak and distinctive radio mast. The slopes range from easy to intermediate thanks to the gentle shape of the mountain – making this a great destination for the whole family. The resort includes three chairlifts and five drag lifts, as well as a magic carpet for beginners. 18 kilometres of pistes invite winter sports fans to explore and enjoy – with great views of Innsbruck, the Stubai Valley and the Inn Valley.
Snow park and children’s area
Freestylers can try out new tricks in the snow park, located 1,900 metres above sea level in a scenic spot on the sunny Patsch plateau. The park offers obstacles of all difficultly levels and can be reached via the Ochsenalm drag lift or the Panoramabahn chairlift. There are also three child-friendly areas where children can practice their turns.
Three Olympic Games
Patscherkofel was at the heart of Olympic excitement during the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympic Games. Alpine ski racing events were held on the slopes and sliding sports took place on the ice track. Patscherkofel also hosted the Youth Olympics in 2012 and is a regular destination for the bobsleigh, luge and skeleton elite. Patscherkofel has proven itself to be a great host – something guests have the chance to experience first-hand.
