Innsbruck, Austria


Innsbruck is a not just skiing but a cultural experience. It is the Tyrolean capital and is known for its architecture, sightseeing, cultural events, and convenient access to miles of exhilarating ski runs.

Having hosted the Winter Olympics in 1964 and 1976, Innsbruck knows quite a bit about winter sports. Skiers and snowboarders have access to over 500 kilometers of trails in 25 surrounding village resorts connected by a free ski bus.

However the associated disadvantage of not staying on-mountain, is having to travel each day and
as each Innsbruck ski resort is quite small, the terrain is only enough to warrant a one day visit to each.

Trails: 500 km (scattered on 25 minor resorts)
Lifts: 59

    I don’t really know why anyone would go here for skiing when you have so many other and MUCH better places within 30 minutes drive distance.

    Don’t really like the Innsbruck area for a dedicated weeklong skitrip – it is far too scattered for that. However if you have to kill time for a day or two it is fine – go to one or two of the many villages and have some fun. But again if looking for somewhere to stay for a week you should look for the other “real” resorts.
