Igls has only limited skiing itself (12km of runs), but is part of the 'Innsbruck Glacier' pass. This allows year-round skiing on the Stubai glacier further up the valley and a total of 130km of runs spread over a collection of small domains. Igls holds a special place in Austrian skiers' hearts, as it was the venue for the 1976 Olympic Downhill, where Franz Klammer claimed the gold. It is a very scenic spot high above Innsbruck and best suits skiers of lower abilities. It is a traditional Tyrolean village - sedate and with limited après-ski and reasonable accommodation. Many Innsbruckers head up here for quiet weekends, gentle skiing and lots of cross-country. The glacier, which is poorly bus-linked, can get very busy when snow isn't good.
