Patscherkofel

Patscherkofel (f.k.a. Igls) Ski Resort Austria

Patscherkofel is a great fun little ski hill near Innsbruck. Little being a relative term as it has a skiable vertical of nearly 1000m - bigger then most ski resorts in North America and Japan.

Accessible by the Line 6 tram or bus from Innsbruck, a day at Patscherkofel is memorable because you will wish you had this little skiing gem in your backyard.

Patscherkofel is part of Innsbruck's Olimpia SkiWorld region which includes 9 'local' ski resorts including the excellent Stubai Glacier.

Patscherkofel is undergoing a major redevelopment for season 2017-18. A new gondola will replace the old cable car and both chairlifts. Click on the trail map to see the changes.

Whilst Patscherkofel is close to Innsbruck, there is some great local accommodation near the ski resort in the town of Igls. Three worth looking at are:
Hotel Gruberhof - Well priced traditional hotel near the ski resort.
Hotel Garni Romerhof- Modern hotel and spa in lovely rural setting. Closest hotel to the Olex base area.
Sporthotel Igls - Located in the centre of Igls, this traditional Austrian hotel with bar and restaurant is close to all the services in town and a short distance from the ski resort.

Information about this European ski resort is coming soon.

The Powderhounds reviewed this resort in January 2017 and will return in 2018 to check out the redevelopments, stay tuned for more information and photos.
