Mountain rises directly out of a big city
Limited Terrain (Size & Variety)
I visited Innsbruck the week of New Years in 2005. The Nordpark ski area, which is located across Inns River from the old town center, is the only ski area that opperates directly out of Innsbruck. The rest of the areas require a bus ride upwards of an hour to reach from the city center. There are only a few lifts and runs, but they are adequately difficult. The runs off the top of the gondola are challenging and filled with powder, but very short. This area is good for a day when you get a late start or want to head back to town early. Apres-ski for the resort is excellent because you have the entire town of Innsbruck at your disposal. Overall, I wouldn't plan my trip around coming to Nordpark, but it serves a purpose.
