Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Innsbruk - easy ski resorts nearby

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Are there any resorts that are either close by to innsbruk or with easy transport links between the two? Preferably with lots of nice blues. And good snow in January. Apres ski provisions not needed. Not much to ask is it Very Happy

@bambionskiis, How easy do the transport links need to be? Train or car?

@bambionskiis, You might want to look at Seefeld, not so much skiing but relatively easy on the train from Innsbruck. Nearer to Innsbruck is either Schlick 2000 or Axamer Lizum (I think there are shuttles from Innsbruck to both). None of these places are huge but good for a day trip. Further afield the Zillertal is easy to get to on the train, Kaltenbach best for a day trip.

Thanks Munich. I realise I haven’t given enough detail, in that I wasn’t planning on staying in innsbruk but flying into there. I was just thinking of easy access to resort from airport. Sorry.
I’ve heard of seefeld so will have a look at that though.

no idea, but I used to do regular long weekends from Bristol and would book a transfer that was typically a VW Transporter for our group from the airport that took 30 mins to get up to the resort.

Did the small resorts like Schlick but they are really half day type slopes, Stubai is at the end of a long road and a bit like a day trip to get to it on the bus ... Khutai is a lovely small resort at 2000m that is as good as it gets imho, loved it

Kaltenbach, just over an hour by train (main Innsbruck station) , including one change onto the smaller valley railway. Train station is then about 300m walk to the gondola.

Really great suggestions thanks. I hadn’t heard of kaltenbach before.

In a perfect world when would be the best month to visit, do you guys think? We can go when we want (not tied to half term now). We had thought January originally but we could do later.

Bennyboy - That’s Actually my preferred week. Wasn’t sure whether early March for example would be a bit more pleasant but I’m guessing things will be more expensive. Hmm.

It's Kühtai (and Innsbruck with a c), but yes it was where The Jump was filmed - and the drive from Innsbruck is only 5 mins or so shorter than to Stubai (bus to Stubai can be a schlepp though; I've never taken to bus to Kühtai).

However if bambionskiis just wants somewhere with an easy transfer from Innsbruck, s/he will need to give some more info as that includes several hundred resorts! Arlberg, Kitzbühel, Serfaus, Zillertal... etc.

Zell am Ziller is worth considering, as are the other villages along the valley towards Gerlos. Wide open slopes and lots of nice blue runs as well as some easy reds, plus lots more options. Zell is on the Zillertalbahn, so an easy train journey from Innsbruck, and you also have the option of trying the other Zillertal areas such as Hochfugen, Mayrhofen and of course Hintertux. Conditions in mid-late January should be good, and most places will be fairly quiet.

Obergurgl will fit the bill. The resort sounds perfect for your skiing requirements and there are many threads on here stating that it is quite easily accessed by public transport. It’s a bit pricey though!

@Eggfried, Obergurgl is great but it was bit of a slog to get there under public transport when I did it ages ago

Seefeld is a very easy transfer on the train or not expensive in a taxi (60 euro rings a bell). Good for beginners and non skiers but not great if you ski well. Also excellent for cross country, good swimming pool etc etc.

Speaking of filming, Eddie the Eagle was being shot the last time I was there, so if you fancy a jump...

If you can get a bus from Innsbruck to Kühtai shirley it would take hours Puzzled

Surprised nobody's mentioned Axamer Lizum. 19km on a free ski bus from Innsbruck and a great little area for beginners.

It's a slog even in a car tbh, a good 1.5 hours.

45min IIRC. That one's pretty straightforward – direct from the Hauptbahnhof.

Think Schlik would be more suitable for blues?

There are tons of options within an hour or so, with good public transport links.

Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:
buses daily from Innsbruck to Schlick, Axamer, Kuhati, Stubai & 1 or 2 others.

Otherwise you can a train West or East
West - Landek in less than an hour & then onto Serfaus - or St Anton in just over an hour.
Go East & from Landek you can head down Ziller or keep going East to Kitzbuhel which is also just over an hour, with Brixen & Westendorf on the way.

Guess a lot depends on if you are basing yourself in Innsbruck, or plan to stay in a resort & how long for.

+1 for Kuhtai. Went there with the kids for a 4-day trip a few years back. High (2000m?), reasonably large area. Kids enjoyed the night skiing. Good touring options if you want them.
