An active mountain winter
Numerous winter activities directly outside the hotel.
The Sporthotel Igls is the perfect location and starting point for big and small to enjoy winter magic and snowy flurries. Numerous winter activities are available directly outside the hotel. Ski courses, toboggan runs and kilometre long walking and hiking paths are just waiting to be discovered.
You can find an endless plethora of piste pleasure right next to the Sporthotel. You only need a single ski pass in order to get your winter sports pulse racing. The Olympia SkiWorld in Innsbruck provides access to 300 kilometres of pistes, spread across nine ski resorts. One of these is the ski resort in the local Igler mountain Patscherkofel, whose valley station is literally a stone’s throw from the hotel. With the Olympic express OLEX and the Patscherkofel train, you can get directly to the ski resort from Igls, which has something for both beginners and professionals to look forward to almost 24 hours a day: a floodlit facility ensures perfect night-skiing conditions.
Sledging fun for the whole family
Out in the glorious sunshine or under a starry ski, whether with children, friends or as a couple—sledging is a wonderful pleasure in the winter landscape.
Maria Waldrast is a popular tobogganing run at the foot of the Serles, whose top end is the pilgrimage spot, Maria Waldrast. The 3.6 km long toboggan run, which is separated from the ascent, is lit up on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays (until 10:30 pm) and also partially snow-covered. If you want to save yourself the 75 minute walk from the car park, you can use a shuttle (upon request)
