Owner description: The Patscherkofel has always played a big part in sports history: Olympic Winter Games in 1964 and 1976 with the legendary race of Franz Klammer, in the season 1998/99 the greatest team success in the history of the world cup with 9 racers of the ÖSV Super G team in the lead. The winner was Hermann Maier. In 2003 Michaela Dorfmeister won the wom-en’s downhill race, the two Super G races were won by Renate Götschl and Brigitte Obermoser.Ski along the tracks of the stars via the Olympic Run and enjoy the wide Family Run. The Patscherkofel offers slopes for all levels of ability and also an out-standing view over Innsbruck, the Stubai Valley, the Wipp Valley and Inn valley. The numerous moun-tains higher than 3.000 m will make a lasting im-pression on you

We were slightly confused with where patscherkofel was as the old slope has just closed (although google maps for example still shows the old ski lift (as at 8/1/17)) there is now a newer one further up the mountain (I think it opened around the 22/12/17) some of the taxi drivers were still dropping skiers off at the old one so be careful! This was my first ski trip and I didn’t manage to find any nursery slopes and the blue slopes were very steep so I didn’t have the best time of it. I also went with some who were more experienced, and they enjoyed it more, but I wouldn’t say anything stood out as amazing.

So we arrived by train at Innsbruk and we read there that was a tram to the resort but the info people in the train station told us to get the J bus...which we did...leaving the train station, you turn right and keep going until you round a bend and come to a big intersection. Stay on the same side and catch the J bus to Patscherkofel (the last stop). You can just buy tickets from the driver but make sure you have small bills or coins. If you are renting gear, the shop at Patscherkofel is way more expensive than the ones a few stops before in Bilgeristrabe (the J bus is free if you are carrying ski equipment to and from the hill) But the shops we visited didn't rent the small stuff like goggles.

Anyway the skiing was mixed conditions but fantastic overall. It was something like 34 euros for a full day and 28 for a half day. We were lucky because it snowed the night before. The weather was sunny so the views were incredible. There was never a queue at the bottom to go up. Sometimes we had the gondola to ourselves. It just feels like it's not crowded at all on the hill. You can ski freely. There are restaurants at the bottom and top. There are not a huge amount of runs but there is the Olympic run. I never see this hill as a top ski destination in Austria but that's fine because it will stay crowd-free. If you like skiing or boarding it's a great day out on the slopes for sure.

Natural beauty displayed in all its glory ... this area could (should?) feature in Austria's publicity. A wonderful place to relax and explore.

A trip up to the top on a clear day is a must. A chance to see the bobsleigh run from the Olympics and an immaculate, if pricey golf course. If you don't fancy the 2.5km walk each way to the top from the cable car you will still get amazing views from here
