Located some 5km from Innsbruck at the foot of Patscherkofel mountain, Igls is one of Tyrol's best and most exclusive ski resorts. Skiers can take the lift from the centre of the village to the top of the mountain, which offers a choice of pistes ranging from beginners' to advanced runs. The area also boasts 30km of hiking paths, a 3km natural toboggan run and the hair-raising Olympic bobsleigh run. The Olympic run hosts a number of top events as well as offering visitors the opportunity to test their nerves and race down the 800m course in a four-man bob.
