Skiing in Seefeld
The downhill skiing in the Seefeld Olympia Region is concentrated in Seefeld in two sections - the smaller Gschwandtkopf mountain (south-west of Seefeld) and the larger Rosshütte/Härmelekopf mountain (to the north-east). Gschwandtkopf is a gently rounded hill with wooded slopes and beginners tend to progress on to it from the nursery area on the Geigenbühel hill in the centre of the village. Most of the runs are blue and two of the resort's six chairlifts are here.
The Rosshütte, reached by a funicular railway, offers Seefeld's serious skiing. There are often moguls on the red trail at the top of the Seefelder Joch that would be black in many resorts and there are several notable off-piste trails on the Härmelekopf which can be undertaken with a guide. The area pass covers many exciting runs and should be adequate to satisfy even the most demanding skiers.
For lunchtime, skiers and boarders will find the Rosshütte restaurant serving Tyrolean delicacies and international specialities. Other choices are the Ski-Alm, situated at the base terminal and the best place for après-ski, the Skistadl with 'Murmelebau', or the most recent addition, the Hocheggalm.
Two Olympic Games and Nordic Ski World Championships made the Olympiaregion Seefeld well-known all over the world. There are around 265 km (159 miles) of trails in the area.
Snowboarding in Seefeld
Seefeld's Crazy Hole terrain park on the Rosshutte is located between 1580 and 1650m and stretches over about 360m. Boarders and free skiers have a dozen different elements to enjoy including a three jump combination with jumps from four to eight metres, along with two quarter pipes, double waves, rails and three super size steep turns. Elsewhere the wide open trails are particularly well suited to beginner and intermediate levels of 'boarder ability.
Although there's a new gondola, a cable car and a funicular in order to access the highest runs on the Rosshütte, most of the other lifts are T Bars, so it's usually best to go from bottom to top on these lifts then ride all the way down unless you've mastered the ultimate skill of riding a T Bar with a 'board.

Seefeld Skiing | Seefeld Austria
For a gentle introduction to skiing, Seefeld's superb ski school and slopes are highly recommended. Lessons begin on the Geigenbühel beginners' area - perfect for mastering those snowplough turns - before heading further afield to slightly steeper runs to practise your newly-found skills.
The Gschwandtkopf is close to the village centre and caters mostly for lower intermediates. From the other end of the village, a mountain railway allows you to travel in comfort up to the Rosshütte, offering more challenging pistes for intermediates.
While adventurous experts may find the area limiting, there are one or two runs on the Rosshütte which should not be taken lightly. The upper slopes of the Seefelder Joch are often heavily mogulled and the off-piste on the far side of the Härmelekopf is excellent, but should only be tackled with a guide due to a number of inconspicuous cliffs.
Seefeld has some of the best cross-country skiing in the Alps, with terrain suitable for every level. The trails, suitable for both classic and skating styles, were originally designed for the 1976 Winter Olympics and have been used ever since by recreational and professional alike. The course, that runs past frozen lakes, through forests and high, open plateaux, is groomed daily and includes tracks for adaptive Nordic skiing, floodlit trails and dog-friendly routes. The trails aren't free to use, but can be accessed for a small charge.
