The glistening snowy landscapes, boldly coloured in brilliant winter white and bright sky blue, are a veritable dream come true for skiers and freeriders, snowboarders and winter hikers alike. The nine ski areas of Olympia SkiWorld Innsbruck - including Kühtai, at 2,020m altitude Austria’s highest ski resort - offer everything a snow sport enthusiast’s heart can possibly desire. This in itself, of course, doesn’t distinguish the three-time Olympic host city from other major winter sports destinations. What makes Innsbruck truly unique is its exceptional location, offering a variety of urban delights after a glorious day on the nearby slopes.
Vibrant and full of joie de vivre, the city is ringed by stunning mountain landscapes. Here you can enjoy an early-morning cappuccino at a cosy inner-city coffee house, preferably already in skiing attire, before catching the first gondola to the slopes just above town. With 300 km of snow sure pistes, perfectly groomed slopes and a vast range of lifts and cable cars, Innsbruck’s Olympia SkiWorld ticks all the boxes and offers ideal conditions for carefree winter fun. Looking for a twist of adventure? Why not tear down the ice channel of the Olympic bobsleigh and luge track – either in a racing bob, or even better, in a four-man wok for a maximum adrenaline rush.
