Patscherkofel is, besides Nordkette, the ski resort of the city of Innsbruck. Its slopes and its circuit of Bobsleigh have been the venue of the three Olympic Winter Games (1964, 1976 and Youth Olympic Games in 2012) that Innsbruck has held. The ski resort is not located in the city itself, but in Igls, one of the many villages surrounding Innsbruck. Patscherkofel has been remodeled in the 2017-2018 season. Several lifts have changed, making it much more comfortable and removing those that were repetitive. In addition, they have created three black slopes, increasing the diversity of difficulties. Still more changes are expected for the next season 2018-2019.
- The proximity to Innsbruck and its accessibility by free bus.
- The descent from the highest area of the cable car to the base, connecting red and black slopes, with its 1000 meters of altitude is very fun and a challenge to do it without stopping throughout the descent.
- After the works, they have left the ski resort much more useful and profitable. Less lifts, more speed and a greater diversity of slopes.
